Really nice place...

  • 4 of 5
  • Submitted: Sep 12, 2012
  • Stayed: Sep 2012
No, really. They don't have enough photos online to describe. Huge 1940 home with lots of rooms to explore, lots of old furniture and fixtures, I'm ignorant but most of it looked like the real deal to me (aka old). Like having a nice B&B all to one's self. Also filled with old photos, books, even a scrapbook from the 1930's I found fascinating.

Historic home in older neighbourhood, kinda on the edge of an area of nice, larger homes in town. At no time did the area worry us. Quiet. B'ville in general seems a nice enough town.

Cons: Already stated in other reviews for the most part. Will comment on musty smell- to me it smelled proper. I'm an old house, see? I smell old! Ceased to notice it after a while. House is 70+ and not constantly used, in a humid part of the world. But if you're particularly sensitive to that, keep it in mind. Travelled with an aunt who is allergic to a lot of things, did not overpower her so it couldn't have been that bad. Found minor issues, duly reported. Found damage I had to report- cleaning crew or kids, I don't know... I don't have kids, but if you do and it were me, I'd keep a really, really (did I say REALLY?) close eye on children. Old & breakable stuff everywhere. Parlour & formal D/R off limits for anything but looking, btw, but it sure is pretty.

Hot tub holds heat almost too well, but I don't think the high limit is broken, just dial down and allow to air out to get down to safe temps of 104F or less. Doesn't appear to use chlorine to stay clear- makes for very nice hot tub experience once the temp is comfortable.

Pros are legion. House is very nice, where else you get to stay in huge old place with antiques, solar heated pool, hot tub- both screened in a huge back area, library, tennis court, wonderful old grounds surrounding the place, for the price it can't be beat. Everything was clean and well appointed. Pool and hot tub well maintained. Owners gracious in allowing a few guests over for supper (but it is a quiet neighbourhood, no loud parties). Would stay there again in a New York minute, & if Jim & Ellen's Smky Mtn properties are half as nicely kept, will be checking those out some day.

Holiday celebrations and family visits

  • 4 of 5
  • Submitted: May 23, 2012
  • Stayed: May 2012
We arrived in the evening. At first glance the house was huge. We explored every room about 14 in all. It was rather warm and stuffy with mold smell until we got the A/C lower. Everything you need is included and even bikes to ride. The pool and hot tub were our favorites and very clean. The home was nicely furnished in Victorian period furniture. I felt I was back in the 1800's. The only drawback was the kitchen utensils were a little dirty and dishes were unorganized. I reorganized the pots, pans, dishes, and bowls and replaced the nonstick utensils that were unusable. Only one half of the four slot toaster worked but there was only two of us so we made do. Other than those minor details we enjoy staying in this lovely home and would like to do it again if we had a need for a family gathering in the area. The frequent travel to Tampa got to be a drag. Can't wait to visit the Tarpon Springs home in November. Thanks Jim for a wonderful memorable visit.

Beautifully Appointed Historic Home!

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Sep 21, 2010
  • Stayed: Sep 2010
This beautifully appointed historic home was the highlight of our recent trip to Florida! We booked this property after staying at the Valdosta rental in Georgia, which is equally impressive. The listing description cannot fully capture or describe how special this home is. The pictures simply do not do it justice!

The antique filled rooms make you feel as if you have stepped back in time, and the experience of staying in such a home is a real treat, vs. staying in any top rated five-star hotel. My husband and I appreciated the architecture as well as the attention to detail in the formal antique rooms. Of course, our children enjoyed the pool area just right outside the casual living area the most, and would love to own such a house themselves someday!

Jim and Ellen Hunter have exceptional taste, and you will not be disappointed when booking any of their immaculate rental properties. They are a delightful couple with a kindred spirit, and our family is definitely planning on re-booking this property, as well as others in the future.

Happy Travels!

My family and I have stayed here more than once. What a pleasure! The house is decorated with such charm but you'll still feel at home. The best was sitting around the screened in pool late at night, listening to the night time birds and every now and then...a train in the far distance. A vacation experience without the hassle of Hotel/Motel headaches!
