Owner/Manager purchased this house in 2004
We purchased this property because of the feeling we get when we arrive in 'small town' Wellsboro - distant from the hubub of suburban and city life. We breath a large sigh of relief when we drive into the beautiful town which was laid out by the founding fathers with a wonderful gas lit boulevard. It is always decorated by local civic leaders to match the season - Christmas trees and wreaths at Christmas, Corn stalks and pumpkins in the fall, flags etc for national holidays, etc. It is a pleasure to see and a greater pleasure to live here, even for a short spell!
This particular home grabbed us because of the potential which it presented to us. We have made many improvements such as removing the old carpeting to reveal gorgeous bi-colored wood floors in the dining room and oak in the parlor; created wainscoting and trim to match the Victorian era, improved the kitchen, installed a woodstove in the family room, upgraded the bath rooms, completely renovated the barn, in which we found letters by the Judge who owned the property around 1900. etc. etc.
Very accurate listing,,,,pretty much just show up and you feel right at home,,,you can walk to town and hiking/biking is just a short drive away. Owners are great to deal with and the house is cozy, comfortable and roomy,,,check it out, will not be disappointed,,,thanks for providing a great base for our fall adventure.
Stayed for 3 nights to visit family. The photos are accurate, as is the description. I agree with the previous reviewer about Native Bagel. Nothing fancy but a good place for a sandwich. Just don't go at peak times or you will have a wait.
The house has everything you need - towels, cooking supplies, "toys" in the garage... and was clean. Nice TV with lots of channels, DVDs, board games. It had it all!
My only very minor issue was the refrigerator. There was very little room in it for the food I brought with me. I think the owners may have just been there and may be coming back soon, as there was lots on the shelves! I moved it around and made my stuff fit on the top shelf. And be aware that only two of the bedrooms have window AC units. It was fine for us, as we were a party of three and only used two bedrooms. But if you will use all three bedrooms and go in a heatwave like we did, someone will not be happy! ;)
Spent a week here for 55th class reunion. This home is located on a beautiful street lined with many other old homes of this type with large lawns, beautiful trees and large quiet backyards. It's cozy interior is tastefully decorated and welcoming. The owners were very helpful and accommodating. We are already planning a return trip.
Perfect location in the heart of Wellsboro, near dining, shops, etc. (Native Bagel is a must). The house was clean, well-maintained, and combined an old fashioned charm with many modern features, such as updated bathrooms and kitchen. The owners, Doris and Dave were super friendly and very helpful in answering all of the questions that we had and in making recommendations about the area. I would highly recommend this property to anyone looking to stay in the area.
The Laurel Festival in June, The Endless Mountain Festival in August, Fall colors in September, Dickens Weekend in December, etc. Also an Arts gallery (The Gmeiner), monthly live plays by the Hamilton Gibson Players, professional musicians, etc in the Deane Center - all of this is less than 1/2 mile from the house!
