What makes this House unique
This guest house is a chance to get away and have a place where your family or group can be close to Manhattan, yet share a private time together with access to common areas of the house. The house is a 1923 farmhouse with a native stone porch, in a relaxing native prairie setting. We say, "it's not fancy, but it's comfortable." It is kind of a step back in time. What we hear most often from guests is that it reminds them of their grandmother's home or how comfortable the beds are.
