  • Cute historic house walking distance from downtown area


    We enjoyed our stay primarily for the cleanliness and location. It is across from a cemetery, but that didn’t bother us. Quiet neighbors, my husband said. But we loved the covered side porch and the comfy bed.

    Only down sides were the bathroom was very small, especially the shower, and the floors are pretty uneven, which would be a challenge for older guests (including the steep and slippery stairs up to the primary bedroom).

    Also, it appears that the owners suite is located just down the hall from the guest room. Luckily they weren’t home during our visit, but we had the impression that their space was more separated based on the listing.

  • AWESOME Home!!


    The home was very lovely and comfy, just a perfect stay!! Very clean, beds were comfortable, kitchen fully stocked (we cooked Christmas dinner!). The atmosphere was very homey and everything was tastefully decorated. The extras they had for us was very thoughtful.

    Such a wonderful location, very convenient to everything, and the neighborhood was beautiful. We felt very secure and safe during our stay, and Jon & Megan were superb hosts & very delightful to communicate with!

    We have stayed at other vacay rental homes and find this to be one of the top homes we’ve had the great pleasure to stay in! I would highly recommend this home to anyone considering staying here

    The house was charming! An older home, remodeled with the conveniences of modern life, yet keeping touches of the past. The home was absolutely immaculate, with many necessities supplied. We would definitely stay here again!
