This historic home is a fantastic space filled with sunlight and the kind of charm that you can only gain from over 148 years in existence. It is located in a building that we own and is directly above our boutique retail store. The center city location (almost everything is walkable) is perfect for travelers, so we renovated it into a guest house!
We did the renovation work by ourselves, by hand, with care paid to the historic nature of the building.
