About the property

2 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 4, quiet country getaway

This two-bedroom fully-accessible apartment has high-end finishes including a custom kitchen with refrigerator, oven, dishwasher, and microwave. Dishes, cooking supplies, and dish soap are provided. The master bedroom has a queen TempurPedic adjustable bed, and the second bedroom includes two twin beds (one is a trundle that rolls under the other bed). A queen-sized air mattress is also available. The bathroom includes a zero-threshold tiled shower with two shower heads and heated floor. The vaulted living room has adjustable recliners, a table for four, and patio access. A table and chairs are also located on the patio. Watch the deer walk out of the woods as you enjoy your morning coffee!

This hidden oasis is tucked into the end of a building set back away from the highway on a six-acre lot. It is very quiet (no highway noise and only daytime use of the wood shop on the other end of the building). From the location, you can drive to Lawrence in less than 15 minutes and be in downtown Topeka in 10 minutes. Easy access to I-70, Hummer Sports Park, Rock Chalk Park, and the Kansas Speedway. We live on the adjoining property and are available to answer any questions that you might have.

About Amy Erickson

We built this property in 2010 for my father. He currently travels the country in his camper, so we're making the apartment available to you. My husband and I both commute to Lawrence for work, but we both grew up in the country and wanted to give our children that same opportunity. When we travel, we like to stay in VRBOs but we aren't always comfortable staying in people's home. Our apartment is the best of both worlds. You won't see us unless you want to, but we're always available if you need anything.

What makes this apartment unique

The apartment is quiet and secluded, but in less than fifteen minutes you can be to Topeka, Lawrence or three local lakes (Clinton, Shawnee, and Perry).

I was highly impressed with this property.

  • 5 of 5

From the outside you have no idea what waits for you inside. Walking in the door I loved everything about it. Also I had to contact Amy because of my credit card being stolen that was used to reserve it and I didn't want to lose my reservation. She was very flexible on the last payment. When I checked out I had forgotten something and she called me right away and ended up mailing it to me. I had to make some calls to her before the stay and she got right back to me. I highly recommend this place.

A very beautiful and quite get away from the city

  • 5 of 5

When you walk in you like you are at home. Kitchen and living room are opened. The kitchen is perfect. Walkout backdoor and all see is wilderness. The bathroom well on feel in love with the big walk in shower. All your basic bathroom needs are provided and not the cheapest stuff out there.

I stayed at Hidden Oasis for extended period, 5 weeks, while working in the Topeka area from out of State. Could not have been more pleased. Country setting just a short drive from work site and shopping in Topeka. Kitchen had every thing I needed. Access to washer/dryer in adjacent room very convenient. High vaulted ceilings, leather sofa/chair and cable tv made it very easy to unwind at the end of my long work days. Huge walk-in tiled shower was great. But my favorite was the Sealy adjustable bed, I had no idea I hadn't been getting a good night's sleep until my stay. I literally have matching bed/frame ordered.

Thanks Amy, you guys were great.

Great place to stay - 2nd time staying here

  • 5 of 5

My wife, 2 small children and myself have stayed here twice in the past year. There is a lot of room here for us which is perfect. It is clean and very quiet. This is a better alternative for us than staying in a hotel and the price is great too. I'm sure we will be staying here again.

Very nice, clean, bright and comfortable living space!

  • 5 of 5

The name describes it perfectly!! Its definitely a "Hidden Oasis"! We were very surprised when we walked in. The outer building appears to be nothing but an industrial building and when we walked in, we found a beautiful, very clean, bright, spacious and well-equipt apartment with everything you need from fresh towels to a dishwasher!! It is a very private and comfortable space. The hosts, Amy and Clayton, were very friendly and very accommodating! We look forward to returning in the Spring!

Big and spacious

  • 4 of 5

This was a very spacious and very clean establishment. The kitchen was well stocked with basics and Coffee.

The living room couch was basically push out lazy boys ... so comfortable and perfect for s late night movie from their stock of movies.

Amy was always available by text to answer any questions 😊򒠊

The only reason I'm giving four stars is it was a little further out than I had anticipated ..... about 15 minutes outside of town.
