Our space is warm and welcoming. We’ll be anticipating your arrival as our special guest in the living quarters of our family art studio. The spirit of caring and laughter we’ve experience as parents and teachers in this home is well known, established, and awaiting you.
Over the last ten years we’ve offered workshops and camps, private lessons and exceptional birthday parties all of which were centered upon creativity. Throughout the years we’ve witnessed no shortage of joy and with Airbnb we’ve found a way to share that experience while you overnight with us in the valley.
Coincidentally we’ll be your neighbors; owners having lived the next lot over for twenty-two years. When included both homes are situated on a half-acre adjacent to the park.
Be welcomed by Sterling the puppy and our seven chickens. If you like, a pottery lesson can be arranged too (see www.danielsfamilypottery). We structure it around your abilities and decisions. We serve all comers and skill levels, plus can accommodate a group of people ready and willing to participate in an impromptu clay session. Often times you can work alongside us, or just visit and take in the process. The shared art room is a handy flexible space for meetings, projects and meals. Brand new beds are in place for you, and our handmade kitchen is there for you too.
Access to kitchen (well stocked with hand-made pottery, coffee, tea, herbs and spices), bathroom, art room and large yard is part of the arrangement. We can accommodate you with locked storage for bicycles in the garage on the property.
Our backyard is a green zone between the house and park. In the springtime its an especially beautiful place for coffee or tea, listening to birds, wifi, and people watching. Many are entertained by the interactions between the chicken and puppy, or the combinations of children that visit our pets at the park fence throughout the day.
Interaction with Guests
We live next-door and are available to make you comfortable. Sometimes our studio is your destination, however its likely you have other plans around town too. Please allow 24 hour notice for lessons. We can recommend places to eat, shopping, and play. We can help, don’t hesitate to ask.
If you like the idea of hanging out in the studio feel welcome to sit and ask questions while we work. We’re conversational and expect you may be too. Depending on which day you come there may be more or less space for you to work in clay. One thing is guaranteed and that is time and relaxation. Regardless of reasons why you had bad luck working on the wheel try again with Daniels Family. You’ll be smiling and glad you did in no time, guaranteed.
Our Bnb is in the quiet, beautiful, tree-covered “Friendly Neighborhood.” The back yard sits adjacent to Friendly Park and Playground. We are a two block walk away to Friendly Street Market. Friendly has a great deli, beer on tap, and every Friday at 5pm is free wine tasting, often followed by live music. We’re really close to Hult Center, Shedd Institute of the Arts, and WOW Hall events, but just far enough away to be considered quiet and relaxing for sleep.
Half of a mile away at Woodfield Station is where you’ll find extensive grocery shopping at Market of Choice and Sunrise Asian Food Market, and restaurants at Laughing Planet, 16 Tons Cafe. Less than one mile from Great Harvest Bread Company, Metropol Bakery, Tsunami Books, Turtles Bar & Grill. Both the University and Whiteaker are near. Always secure, peaceful, safe, and quiet.
One block from public bus transportation, Lane Transit [LTD]. Lots of on-street parking. Walkable to shopping. Flat enough for easy bicycling in three directions. To the south is the rolling countryside for sport rides. Less than two miles from Downtown, the University Area or The Whiteaker. A longtime professional taxi driver lives across the street. We will provide free pick up at the Amtrak Train Station. VW Airport shuttle available by arrangement.
Other Things to Note
While the studio is a full service pottery we pay careful attention to cleanliness. The living quarters are maintained with high standards.
