It’s not common to find a traditional country home with well-decorated and vibrantly colored interiors; this house is quite the exception. In fact, the design was done with the help of a local furniture shop so there is a high regard for local inspiration in the house. Aside from the eye-catching design, the house has everything you need for your stay including only the freshest of linens, a well-equipped kitchen, and bathroom. The house is also walkable to the nearest hotspots in downtown!

This mid-century house has been transformed into a lovely modern apartment. The way this apartment was designed is quite luxurious that it looks like it was straight out of an interior design magazine. Aside from the modern and minimalist design, the three-bedroom apartment includes a gourmet kitchen, spacious living area, a quiet work area, fully stocked bathroom, and a lovely porch overlooking the green grounds. It’s also a few minutes’ drive to downtown and sits next to Mary Baldwin College so location, a great location indeed.

This adorable loft is actually just a tiny garage, part of the host’s main house. Don’t worry about privacy though because you will have your own access to it without having to disturb the main house. Inside, the bedroom is located at the very top, and due to its limited space, you will quite literally have to crawl into bed. You will be amazed by how the tiny garage is able to fit a small kitchen, bathroom with shower, and living area with a TV for Netflix! This mini quarter has got everything you need for your stay.
