Nice Historic Home

This was our second stay at Maxines. The home is well appointed with everything one would need. The new beds made for a very comfortable stay and the bedding was very nice. Thanks Frank!

Beautiful house close to Shawnee and Bedford

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at Frank's house. He was very helpful and everything was set up perfectly. We went to the lake at Shawnee State Park a lot, which is less than a five minute drive away, and it's very close to Bedford, too. It was clean, quiet, and spacious. Perfect for us and our young son. Thank you for everything, Frank! We hope to come back next year.

Summer Time Fun!!

  • 5 of 5

For yet another trip to the Schellsburg House, we chose August 2012. Once again, what an enjoyable visit! Frank had really updated the dvds, which the kids always look forward to. We made many home cooked meals and enjoyed the large yard to play ball and have some "sparklers" fun. It is just so nice knowing that the house is available for that little escape you need from everyday life. Thanks Frank :)
