About the property

One Bedroom Plus Fully Furnished Home with Charm & Solitude

This 100 year old Victorian home has a refined interior, and is fully furnished for one person or a couple. The main floor includes an enclosed porch, a living room, dining room, wine tasting room with wet bar & library, a country kitchen, and full bathroom with shower. The upstairs is a Jack & Jill design (one bedroom plus an extra sleeping or meditation room) and a full bath with tub. A front load washer & dryer are available in the basement, plus an additional shower, toilet, & room for storage if a longer term stay is desired. This is the perfect quiet get away to host an intimate family gathering or a place to stay while you visit local family or friends. It feels like a home away from home which is lovingly cared for.
