Located in the Cherokee-Lemp Historic District, this 1,200SF newly renovated 2nd floor apartment provides everything needed for a comfortable stay away from home.
Private access to open loft space with lots of natural light, new kitchen, large living area, private bedroom and full bath.
Walking distance to restaurants & bars, bakeries, antique & specialty shops, galleries & other venues. Close proximity to Downtown, Soulard, Forest Park, Museums, Universities & other points of local interest.
Imagine waking up to the aroma of fresh-baked goods wafting upstairs from the 1st floor bakery. A bottle of wine and a basket of snacks, as well as a gift certificate to the bakery downstairs, will await your arrival on the kitchen counter. We welcome you to “Sleep Sweet on Cherokee Street”, a fully-renovated apartment located above our daughter’s sustainable bakeshop, Whisk, whose motto is to “Eat Sweet on Cherokee Street”.
The building is 130 years old and was originally built as a doctor’s office and residence. Over the past 18 months, the building has been lovingly renovated from what was once a chopped-up, cookie-cutter apartment to a contemporary, open loft space. Renovation included significant exterior masonry reconstruction, cornice replacement, new roof, new HVAC, electrical and plumbing systems, and full interior gutting and re-building, complete with a reclaimed, quarter-sawn white pine floor (sourced from a 125 year-old church from Adair, IL).
The 1,200 square foot space is open, bright, colorful and cheerful, with plenty of natural light coming from 10 8-foot windows.
• The kitchen is fully stocked with all new designer appliances, including stainless steel refrigerator (with ice and water dispenser), range/cooktop, dishwasher, microwave and disposal. There is also a washer and dryer in a separate utility room for your use.
• The main living area contains comfortable and contemporary furnishings and artwork. It also has a 60” LED flat-screen smart TV with cable and premium channels (HBO, Showtime and Cinemax) as well as access to Netflix, Amazon Prime and other subscriber-based streaming services (subscriber membership required).
• The separate bedroom boasts a king-size bed with pillow-top mattress, with luxury linens for a heavenly night’s sleep, dresser and small work desk (in the event you have to work while you’re here!). There is also ample closet space in the bedroom and a 40” LED flat-screen smart TV. The full bath includes a shower/tub combination and contemporary art glass vessel sink. An inflatable queen-size mattress, pillows and linens are also available to accommodate a party of 4 (interestingly enough … that’s where the “AIR” in Airbnb derives!).
The apartment comes equipped with high-speed internet and wireless throughout (both 2.4Ghz and 5Ghz).
A lockbox is located adjacent to the entry door for 24/7 check-in and check-out (although we are always available, if needed).
On-street parking is almost always available directly in front of the entry door.
Guests will have access to the entire 2nd floor apartment.
We will be available during your stay for any questions, recommendations and issue resolutions you may have. Contact phone numbers will be made available once reservations are confirmed.
