12.7 miles from Perry Lake
Located in the SW area of Lake Shawnee within walking distance to many of the lake’s amenities such as the tennis courts, sand volleyball, playground, shelter house three, the south boat ramp, and the walking/bike trail. It’s ideal for brides and bridesmaids to get ready for the big day since it’s so close to both gazebos and the rose garden; all of which are very popular wedding venues. This is also a great location when coming to Topeka for the holidays, or one of the many sports tournaments hosted in the area (i.e., baseball, softball, wrestling, tennis to name a few). And by the way, your pet is welcome! And so is your boat!
It's great for a romantic getaway or a long weekend. Enjoy sunrises over the lake with a hot cup of coffee on the patio. And there’s a hot tub and pool to enjoy during your stay.
Freshly renovated with brand new furnishings completed in the spring of 2018, it has the latest in technology. There are brand new smart TVs in every room, streaming services such as Sling and Netflix and WIFI is also available. Some of the night stands have plug ins for electrical and USB connections. The master bedroom TV is on an articulating mount so you can move it around to any angle of your choosing.
The spacious open floor concept is furnished in a beautiful mid-century modern appeal. The flooring is stained concrete, making clean up a breeze if a spill happens to occur.
The kitchen is fully equipped with small appliances, a full sized ceramic top range, and refrigerator with ice maker. You will find all the utensils, cooking equipment, and dishes that would make a gourmet cook happy. There’s also a nice assortment of spices and herbs.
The dining table has two chairs, however there are four extra chairs in the closet behind the front door to accommodate six at the table.
The bathroom…well it’s also newly renovated with some pretty great features. One of my favorites is the washer/dryer unit. Yes, one unit does both! It’s designed for smaller loads and is very convenient. If you need full sized, I’m on site – just let me know and you can use mine. There is also a hanging rack if you want to air dry any laundry items. In addition, there is a dispenser hanging on the newly tiled bath/shower wall which has shampoo, conditioner, and soap. I use good quality products so you can leave your liquids at home! If you happen to forget something, just ask me; I probably have it. If you have small children, they’ll get a kick out of the towel hangers - just their size, just their height. There’s grown up ones, too!
This two-bedroom comfortably sleeps four. The good quality mattresses are brand new! The master bedroom has a queen bed that sleeps two. The second bedroom has a daybed which is great for one adult. There is a trundle under the daybed which remains floor level when pulled out. It would accommodate an additional adult. This room is small so if the trundle is being used, the bedroom is full.
Upon request, I can provide small child amenities such as pack and play, high chair, etc. The master bedroom has a custom designed closet. It has hanging space, drawers, and shelves. There is a full-sized ironing board and iron. There are luggage racks in each bedroom to keep your suitcases off the floor. Check out the closets! In the hall closet you will find towels, a first aid kit, a nice assortment of games, and children’s books. In the closet behind the front door you will find a flashlight, fire extinguisher, air mattresses and inflator, as well as four folding chairs.
What’s outside…there’s a hot tub, a pool, and a charcoal grill. These are in a shared space since I live onsite. I have a shop/building. In there is a pool table, and ping pong table. You’ll also find a few pool supplies like floats, noodles, goggles, etc. Your patio has outdoor furniture as well as a chimera, perfect for relaxing before a fire on a cool crisp evening outside. It’s also a great spot for a hot cup of coffee watching the sun come up over the lake. You can see the golf course which is directly across the lake. You’ll feel like you’re staying in the middle of a park – because you are!
Other items to mention: I have this listed as a guest house. It's more of a duplex unit because it is attached to my home (it was once the garage). There's no category to aptly describe the property type. The upside to this that any concerns or need of assistance can be addressed immediately since I’m onsite!
When it's time to head home, I make it easy on you. Other than dishes & taking out the trash don't worry about the rest. Just leave the beds undone and toss the used towels in the tub and I’ll take care of getting it ready for the next guest.
