The space
Completed in 1871 the Depot was moved to it's current location in 1993. Methodically restored piece-by-piece back to it's authentic state, the Depot contains all of the now antique "window weight" windows, most of the original doors and nearly all of the interior beaded wainscoting and exterior siding. The green color scheme is the original Depot colors.
Situated on a hill, just above where the original train tracks laid, on a nice size lot, with no neighbors either side. Patios were placed in both the front and back with train platforms added in the back flanking either end where you can step outside from the tall double doors to enjoy the scenery.
Inside you will find clean comfortable furnishings, many refinished antiques, multiple large animal mounts, a gorgeous restored sleigh, beautiful custom made cabinets, plenty of dishware, utensils and pots and pans. The kitchen also includes a microwave, refrigerator/freezer, double, deep sinks and plenty of paper goods for your stay. A brand new powder room is located off the kitchen.
Downstairs are 2 bedrooms, a full bathroom with a shower and a laundry room with a washer/dryer, iron and ironing board and a laundry rack for hanging wet items. The bathroom is stocked with plenty of clean towels and additional linens and blankets can be found in either of the walk-in closets in the bedrooms.
