Would you like to get away from the hustle and bustle of city life? Take a step back in time to a simpler day when carriages were the mode of transportation. Nestled in the woods of 15 beautiful acres, stands the quaint 1890 farm home which overlooks Grape Arbors and Cherry Orchards.

This property is beautifully landscaped and has several out buildings besides the house and a fully equipped Coach House. There is a kitchen garden within the white picket fence, a babbling water fall pond with fish and frogs, a secluded swing, birds, and wild life galore. Lake

The historic nine room home has four bedrooms and two baths. sleeps 8-12 guests and 2-4 more if the Coach House is used. The Coach House has a bedroom, living room, dining area, kitchen and bath.
