About Nanci Duke

A nature loving, grandchild loving, simple country gal.

Nanci Duke purchased this farmhouse in 1989

Why Nanci Duke chose Canton

This location holds very dear memories to our family. We literally rebuilt this house from scratch. We bought the 54 acre property with this house on it. We were told that we just needed to tear it down. We saw the potential and decided to keep the house. After a couple of years of work, we moved in and have been in love with the property since then. We raised our two boys (men now) in this home. We have many memories here. We hope that you make some memories of your own here and that you enjoy it as much as we enjoy sharing our treasure with you. Our guests satisfaction is our priority.

What makes this farmhouse unique

We have decided to not install internet/wi-fi at our location. We believe that it takes away from your 'getting away' vacation. Come to truly relax and disconnect for a while. If you truly need an internet connection. There are two libraries and other facilities that have an open wi-fi connection.

Relaxing retreat

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I booked this guest house to get away from the hustle and bustle of the big city. We really needed a place to get away from all our demands and unwind. What a beautiful oasis the Guest House is! The Guest House is beautifully appointed with every amenity you could need and more. We even had yummy blueberry muffins for our breakfasts. And outside, we enjoyed the first signs of Spring as we sat around the stone patio watching the myriad of birds that came to the feeders. The Mineola Nature Preserve was a nearby attraction that allowed us to walk and talk in the beautiful spring weather. The owner was always available to guide us to whatever we wanted to do and couldn't have been more accommodating and nice. We are going back soon! Can't wait to slow down and relax again!

Peaceful Retreat

  • 5 of 5
My sister and I had a great weekend getaway at the Guest House. It was a surprise for my sister as a late birthday trip and she just absolutely loved the house. Just like before, Nanci is so easy to communicate with and left lovely fresh flowers on the table along with some fresh muffins. There are so many extras she provides and the one we took full advantage of was the fresh eggs. We couldn't help ourselves and had eggs both mornings for breakfast. The winter bedding was wonderful and made sleeping so cozy. With the peace and quiet we almost had to take a little nap when we returned from visiting Mineola and Canton but instead sat on the front porch watching all the birds and just enjoying each others company. The Guest House is by far one of the best retreats we have stayed at for a quiet, relaxing break from everyday hassles. Thanks so much Nanci, we will be back!

Perfection to the T!!!!

  • 5 of 5
This house was perfect. Nanci has made this house so inviting, comfortable, serene and restful. I can honestly say all you need to bring with you are clothes. Your every need has been taken care of. From the fluffy robes to the warm cozy socks and the delicious meals we were spoiled rotten. This was a perfect girls get away before the hustle and bustle of the holidays. The short drive to Canton was beautiful and coming home to "The Guest House" after a long day of shopping was perfect. We will be back and we have raved to all our friends about this amazing cottage in the country!!!

What a wonderful place to stay! Clean, updated farm house! Exactly what we needed for a weekend getaway! We appriciated the little 'extra's' you provided! The 'farm fresh' eggs and 'coffee-cake' muffins were delicious! This country rental has become one of my favorites in which we will return to!
We found this house @ the last minute and you accommodated us with 1st rate treatment! Thanks so much for all! :)

This house was absolutely adorable and the pictures in the VRBO listing does not do it justice! It is decorated beautifully with old world charm and equipped with every single amenity that you could possibly need or want. The house is spotless and is very comfortable. Even outside has three different seating areas for you to gather and visit. The front porch has 2 swings. It is equipped with all kinds of coffees and teas. There is even a very nice washer and dryer available. I can't say enough good things about this house. Me and 3 girlfriends decided to try this house out when we went to Canton for a shopping weekend trip. It is not that much more than if we rented a hotel room but the difference in the two is astounding. At the house we had a living room, the kitchen table, and even outside to be able to sit around and visit. If we were staying in a hotel, the only place we would have to visit is sitting on the beds. NO COMPARISON. The house is a few miles out in the country, but that didn't effect us at all. Just to be out in the country watching the birds and the squirrels is so much more rewarding than having just other buildings and the asphalt to look at. In fact, we have already discussed with the owner to rent it again next year for our trip!!!
