Welcome to The Gifford Homestead! Built in 1876 by Jeremiah Gifford, this 4 Bed, 1.5 Bath house is one of the original houses in Lakewood. The house sits on a private, wooded 1.3 acre lot, and is a .2 mile walk to the lake and private dock (less than 5 mins). 

The space
There are 4 bedrooms (the house sleeps 8) plus a dedicated office on the second floor. Computer monitor and keyboard / mouse are there for your use. If you have a laptop, just plug in and you're ready to work! (Wifi Provided!)

There are two baths, one full upstairs and a half bath on the first floor. The kitchen is fully stocked (pots and pans, dishes, coffee maker, coffee grinder, blender, crock pot, hand mixer, etc.) and there are also lots of restaurants (and yes a Starbucks!) just a short drive away.

There is plenty of room on the first floor with a den area, a dinette area, plus a large formal living room and dining room. There is a first floor laundry area as well.

The lot is wooded and has plenty of areas to explore. There's a creek with a little bridge over it, a sandbox for the kids, a hammock for afternoon naps and a tree swing. There is a covered back porch with porch swing, a great place to have your morning coffee or glass of wine at the end of the day.
