Nicole Bury of Milbank turned her rental property into a luxurious home away from home. She and her husband, Jerry, own the three story home at 408 S. 4th Street in Milbank which is divided into separate living quarters. The couple had renters in the upper apartment until about seven months ago. “When our tenant left, we came up with this idea and it grew from there,” says Nicole.
The third story apartment is now called The Loft, and the space has been completely remodeled. New pipes, electrical work, and flooring were installed. It also features a new kitchen and bathroom, and all new windows. “We fixed up everything.” Nicole says. “It’s a fully furnished home. Just bring your suitcase. Enjoy a homey stay instead of a traditional motel room.”
Included in The Loft is a fully furnished living room, an office area with a printer and internet access, one bedroom and a bath, a kitchen equipped with appliances, and a dining room. There is even a washer and dryer. “We will rent it out for one night, or for an extended stay.,” Nicole says.” It even comes with kitchen necessities. From pots, pans, and dishes to condiments and baking items. “It’s way more than a motel bed,” says Nicole. “We want people to be comfortable like they are in their own home.” For additional information, see The Loft’s website at www.theloftmilbank.com.
