"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.
