Great location
95% of recent guests gave the location a 5-star rating.
Cozy home built in 1910, located blocks from downtown shops, restaurants, the public library, farmer’s market, the mall and the IMAX movie theater. High ceilings, large windows, a baby grand piano, and original wood trim all add up for that bungalow charm. Large wrap around porch with swing and a beautiful backyard featuring new brick patio, furniture, grill, hammock, dog house, butterfly garden, and fire pit.

The space
This is an older house from 1910. We're gradually updating the house with modern amenities while preserving the original character of the home. We love the wood trim, high ceilings, large windows, and the overall cozy feel of the space.

One of our favorite things is sitting on the porch swing in a thunderstorm or taking a short nap in the hammock out back. There is also a lovely enclosed back porch with new casement windows where you can sit in a rocking chair and watch the hummingbirds and cardinals at the feeders, enjoy a cup of tea next to the electric fireplace, or work on a puzzle at our old fashioned ice cream parlor table.

We love living downtown and walking to great restaurants, shops, and the farmer’s market. It's a great location with friendly neighbors, easy access to City Park, and lots of options for shopping nearby.
