There is plenty of room when the Murphy bed is pulled down. Sit outside next to the Koi pond and enjoy the calming sound of waterfalls and the shaded patio. Watch the fish, birds bath and turtles bask in the sun.

Char and Jay think of everything to make your stay comfortable and accommodating. From the fresh fruit to the about-town recommendations, they have it all waiting for you. The studio apartment is a perfect spot to see Paducah and enjoy its vibrant arts scene.

This place and the owners service exceeded my expectations. Very clean, quaint, exactly what we needed. The bed that is mentioned in the description was spot on. I asked the owners if there was a way for them to create two beds with separate sheets and they did no problem at all. She exceeded my expectations and allowed us to have a great time.

So peaceful to sit by the pond and reflect on life. It is nice and private, but good to know that Jay and Char are close by if needed. We really enjoyed watching Char's progress on the quilt wall painting! Bonus!

What a treasure of a space! Clean and modern with great art and all the finishing touches you need for a perfect stay. We walked everywhere we needed to go. Char gave us lots of wonderful recommendations of where to eat days before our arrival so that we could make reservations. Really was a wonderful retreat for us.
