We have a comfortable, nearly 100-year-old bungalow home in safe, quiet neighborhood near Washburn University, both hospitals, the Capitol, convention center, downtown, the local library & I-70. Your bedroom is on the first floor with a private bathroom. This listing is for 1 bedroom, max two adults. We can provide a pack-n-play for an infant or toddler. Our home is mostly ADA accessible, with rear parking, an ADA ramp to the house and wide doors for entrance to the house and the bedroom.

The space
Accessibility Notes:
The bathroom is small and will not accommodate a wheelchair, but small enough to navigate, with four grab bars, from the entrance. Our daughter was wheelchair bound and navigated the bathroom with one grab bar by the door. We've added three additional bars There is also a transfer shower chair available if requested. We say that the room is mostly accessible because a wheelchair cannot navigate completely around the bed. We STRONGLY urge you to contact us if you use a wheelchair, so we can discuss your needs and accommodate you in the best way possible.

The Space:
Our home is tranquil, and people feel comfortable here. The queen-sized bed and bedding are very high quality. Our WiFi is AT&T fiber and runs about 35 Mbps. The room has a refrigerator, a microwave and a Bluetooth speaker. The television is a smart TV with internet access, Hulu, Amazon and Netflix. We also have Orby satellite TV with local channels and many cable channels. There is a bedside power station with three A/C outlets and four USB ports. The bedroom door has a deadbolt. The room is on the southeast corner of the house. It gets the morning light. There are blackout curtains should you wish to control the sunlight. While the room is on the central HVAC system, there is an additional air conditioner and heater that you may use to set the room temperature as you like. A folding laptop table is in the room for your use.

Guest Access:
As a first time guest we will meet you when you arrive, show you around, then to your room. You will enjoy complete privacy in your room and free access to the public areas of the home to meet your needs. The main entrance has a digital lock and you will be provided with an access code beforeupon your arrival. Should you use the rear handicap parking and the ramp, you will be provided with a key to the side door.

Other Things to Note:
We have a very energetic 12 year old male peekapoo. Hercules weighs about 10 pounds and is always starved for attention. He rarely barks in the house. He is good with children. We watch our 2 year old grandson and four month old granddaughter Wednesdays through Fridays from 7 am to 5 pm, so our house is pretty busy on those days, but not overly loud. The front porch is set up as a playground, but our large rear deck is available should you wish some outdoor time. We are only two blocks from Boswell Park, which has a nice playground. We maintain a non-smoking home, for health reasons.

Guest access
You will have access to on street parking or a handicap parking spot if required. Our living and dining rooms may be used, as well as the kitchen. Our coffee bar is open 24/7, located in the dining room.

Topeka, Kansas, United States

Our neighborhood, Elmhurst, is one of the oldest in Topeka. Established in the early 1900's, architecturally, Elmhurst is homogeneous. Its houses reflect middle class tastes from the second decade of the 20th century. The neighborhood, stylistically, consists of larger 2 ½ story houses. Whether the front gable, side gable, hip roof (the American Foursquare type) or 1 ½-story version, all are classified by the authoritative Field Guide to American House as the Prairie or Craftsman style. Most of the residences date from the late ‘teens or early 1920s and are in the popular bungalow design or the unique Topeka Airplane Bungalow type. Here and there other styles, notably Tudor and Dutch Colonial, can be identified.
The neighborhood blends the different architectural styles well, whether a block of Foursquares or Airplane Bungalows. At least ten residences appeared in catalogs of Topeka’s L.F. Garlinghouse Co., either built from a catalog design or they were the inspiration for one. Our home is a unique Garlinghouse airplane bungalow design; one of a kind, as far as we know.
