"The best Airbnb stateside!" according to one guest review. Just one block from NewBo Market in the heart of a vibrant neighborhood, this sparkling clean, cozy and eclectic space is the upper apartment of an 1890-s era home listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Once slated for demolition, the Heart House was saved and fully restored (in a way that charms everyone) to include a first floor architectural salvage shop, Little House Artifacts, and second floor apartment.

The space
Furnished with a mix of salvaged materials (clawfoot tub, farmhouse kitchen cabinets, flooring saved from three different buildings), up cycled furniture and lighting, and high end appliances, including counter height washer/dryer in the kitchen. Queen platform bed in bedroom, two sleeper sofas (extra long double mattresses) in living room. 550 sq. feet. In the middle of the historic New Bohemia neighborhood. Perfect for weekend getaway or for business travelers who want the comforts of home.

Guest access
Guests have private exterior access to the second floor apartment. Bicycles may be securely stored in our barn.

Other things to note
This is a second floor apartment accessed by a private outdoor staircase. Dogs are allowed with prior approval. No cats allowed, for allergy reasons.
