The Garden Suite has a private entrance in the back of Halcyon House. This charming room features a queen bed, pretty blue couch, brick floors, a dining area, a kitchenette with a microwave, sink, toaster oven, and a mini-fridge with freezer. It is close to the University of Kansas and Downtown Lawrence. If your trip includes visiting students, going to a game, conducting business at the University, or shopping and dining in our historic downtown, this is the perfect location.

I'm a native of Kansas, with wanderlust -- which I inherited from my mom, Esther.
When I was in 5th grade, Mom took my brother David and me out of school to travel the world and stay at B&B's all over Europe. Inspired by this, Mom decided to open her own B&B right here in Lawrence, KS. She and then partner, Gail Towel, opened the first B&B in the state of Kansas (1985)! Halcyon House has been open for 30 years, and now that mom has retired, Halcyon House is me and our two managers, Amy and Kim.
I have a wonderful husband and daughter. Outside of Halcyon House, I keep very busy with a job I love at Luna & Larry’s Coconut Bliss, playing tennis, and spending my free time (what there is) with family and close friends. I have a passion for local and sustainable eco systems of all types including societal, food and nature. I am attuned in level 1 & 2 Reiki and practice (I try at least) mindfulness and physical fitness on a daily basis.
My favorite room in the Halcyon House is the kitchen.
