Staying at Carey Place is like stepping into a bygone era - prewar 1930's Americana - Oklahoma's only US Dept of Interior designated 2-Block Historic Landmark & OKC's most haunted neighborhood - Enter this charming 1936 private Garage Apartment into a time warp of a simpler more quiet era, but now replete with modern plumbing, central a/c & heat, cable tv & wifi. Steps away from the vibrant Plaza District & central to Everything in OKC and Route 66. Amenities included.
Carey Place is a US Department of Interior designated Historic Landmark.
This fully detached historic 1936 garage apartment retains it's original features and details, but has been updated with new central heat & air conditioning, plumbing fixtures, and kitchen appliances. It has a big vintage Chest of Drawers, 2 Nightstands & 1 Vanity Dresser (each with drawers) & a large walk-in Closet. The bed is a full-size Double bed with a quality Down Comforter and 2 Feather Pillows. 2 Foam Pillows are stored in the closet, if you prefer Foam to Feather. Sheets, Comforter Cover, and Pillowcases are all 100% Cotton.
Our aim with this Carey Place Garage Apartment is to provide our guests with a true sense of what it was like to live in this apartment in the 1930's when it was just new. We ourselves seek out charming vintage places to stay on our travels, and we love the feeling of being somewhat in a time-warp - experiencing life "as it was". Of course, these experiences shouldn't mean "roughing it", so we do provide modern kitchen appliances, cable TV, and WiFi, along with central heat & air. But if you squint a bit, and ignore the TV on the vintage Hope Chest, you might also just get that old-timey feeling!
The apartment measures about 500 sqft, and has a 12-step outside stairway, wth private entrance & dedicated off-street (or garage) parking.
There are 2 restored "neighborhood cruiser" bicycles in the garage for your use. Perfect for exploring this wonderful part of Oklahoma City! Quite often my Trail Bike (usually laden w/mud) is also parked there as well, so feel free to use it, too!
Also, there is a 6-String Acoustic Guitar for your enjoyment! You will on occasion hear the soothing Westminster Clock Bells emanating from the tower of the nearby St Francis of Assisi Church.
Zugang für Gäste
Full & private access to this fully detached apartment. Self Check-In. The small (pet-free) tree-shrouded backyard is shared, and has a small table with 2 chairs nestled under the trees for this apartment's use.
Dedicated off-street driveway parking w/garage. The locking garage space will accomodate a motorcycle or compact car. My Honda Element barely squeezes in, with the mirrors folded flat. The garage door measures 6' wide when open, and 6' in height. The other 2 spaces are used solely for storage, so you needn't worry about car fumes from the garage. If you have a large vehicle, feel free to park in front of the house - it is a very quiet/safe street. I think cars were much narrower in the 1930's!
Interaktion mit Gästen
This quiet & safe historic place is good for couples, solo adventurers, and business travelers - central to everything in OKC via Uber, foot, or bike.
We are available 24/7 to answer questions but let guests set the tone for interactions. We will likely be nearby and we welcome your questions--we are happy to help however we can.
