"This is the best Airbnb we have ever stayed in" said a recent guest with years of experience staying in Airbnb's. In 1854, Marion Wohlfrom came to Leavenworth and opened a grocery store. The family business was on the first floor with their residence above the store. This is what Cody's Rest once was, the home of a German family who lived all of their lives in this apartment while operating a grocery store for 93 years.

The space
A recent guest left this review of Cody's Rest and I could not have asked for a more fair and accurate review.
"Anyone willing to climb stairs will remember that the best tends to rise. Cody's Rest fits that maxim: you climb a long set of stairs onto a large deck facing north, where you can sit when the weather suits you. Open the apartment door and take time to catch your breath: the apartment has been salvaged, repaired. cleaned, furnished, and modernized into one of the most remarkable Airbnb's we've even seen. A first view admires the spaciousness, room after room, and a quick tour discovers everything you could ask for and then some. You learn the history of the building, one of the oldest in Kansas, and relax amid period furnishings and an astonishing display of prints and posters on the walls that reflect Leavenworth's frontier beginnings, with heavy emphasis on Buffalo Bill Cody. Custer has a photo. The location is in Leavenworth is great: just a few blocks from the main gate to Fort Leavenworth, and only steps to downtown with its shops, banks, bars, and cafes. Leavenworth has plenty to recommend it as weekend getaway or base for the short trip to KU events. It has a private parking space at the base of the stairs. Highly recommended, but you have to be able to climb stairs."

Where you’ll be

Leavenworth, Kansas, United States

Cody's Rest is located in the heart of beautiful downtown Leavenworth. It's two minute walk to the numerous and outstanding restaurants, shops, theater, and post office. And after 10 pm it is pretty quiet. Fort Leavenworth is five minutes away.

It's hard to believe that five short years ago I opened Cody's Rest. I was the first, in this, the first city of Kansas, to open an Airbnb in our fantastic community. I have thoroughly enjoyed every minute. I have surrounded the walls of Cody's Rest with historical pictures of Leavenworth and Fort Leavenworth that are part of my collection of photographs. I let people know that every one of them was printed off of the negative, these are not copies. I love the history of Leavenworth and when asked I can tell you a few things that most people don't know.

During your stay

I have a photography studio on the first floor and am available during business hours which includes Saturdays. I believe it is important to allow my guest their privacy.
