We are located in the heart of Kenosha. A fine little town right between Chicago and Milwaukee. We are located on 5+ acres.
We have horses on the property that lives in the lower part of the barn. If you are allergic to horses, this place is not for you. We prefer a minimum of two nights on weekends. There are 3 sleeping areas- but not 3 bedrooms.
I am a photographer and most of my work is location photography. I decided to make my barn/studio into an airbnb place. The barn has three levels with the top level a nice room with a queen bed and work desk. There is also a lounging area.
The second level has a full size futon as well as a lounger that could sleep a smaller person or child. The second level is also the "studio" primary shooting area. It is unique, funky and fun.
The first floor has a kitchenette. A sink, fridge, as well as a microwave, and a small toaster oven. There is an eating area for two or three. There is also a full size hide-a-bed and a lounging area as well.
There is a nice full bathroom on the first floor.
There is a gas grill available for our guests so feel free to bring what you wish to cook on the grill.
Just added bluetooth to the stereo system- and it rocks- lots of great sound to fill the space so bring your tunes with you to enjoy!
There is quite a lot of shopping as well as local events in the Kenosha area. Less than an hour away from Chicago, Milwaukee and Lake Geneva and minutes from Lake Michigan. We are always happy to make suggestions.
While the listing does say 4, the space could accommodate more. However, it might be a bit too cozy for some.
There does seem to be some confusion on the AC- there is air conditioning in the barn. I have 3 units, however I do not run them all the time unless guests want to run them. Most people seem to enjoy the open breeze- we are only about 1/3 of a mile from the lake so we are usually cool.
Guests will have access to the property and the studio can be used for photography for a small additional fee. In fact, to add to the uniqueness, we can even provide a teaching/tutor session for $40.00 per hour. If you like, we can add a photo session for you and your party at an attractive rate as well. Of course this does depend on my time and availability. There is absolutely no pressure to do anything at all other than enjoy your stay. It is just an opportunity that we think could make your stay an even better experience.

Interaction is totally up to the guests. We can spend as little or as much time as you desire.
Our home is on the property, so we are generally close by if you need us.

This space is a work in progress. It is unique and an artists space. As the space continues to evolve we will update with photos as well.
Access to the 2nd and 3 level is with a spiral staircase.
As mentioned earlier if you are allergic to horses, please do not book this space. As far as other animals, we have a cat and a dog that are rarely in the space.
The space has a 20 gallon water heater so showers may need to be planned accordingly if there are more than two people looking to shower. As 0f 9/30/17 the horse has been moved off property.
We are pretty laid back and hope you are too. We want you to come, relax and enjoy your stay. If you smoke, please do so outside. If you want to bring your pet, that should not be a problem. Please check with us first. As I mentioned earlier we do have a spiral staircase and some dogs are a little afraid of it while others are not.
We currently have a horse on the property. If you bring a dog please do not allow the dog in the pasture with the horse. The horse will kick the dog and possibly injure the dog.
