I invite you to take a step back in time to 1882. This Victorian home has been restored to it's former glory within the past three years. All woodwork , stained glass and staircase are original. Library, sitting room, parlor beautiful dining room.
If you are looking for a grand and majestic Victorian, then this home, known as the "Russell House', will speak to you. It is over 4800 square feet of beautiful craftsmanship from a time gone by. As you enter through the vestibule, you will note the hand-carved staircase and fresco ceilings in the foyer. A formal parlor to your right and a grand sitting room to your left. The impressive wood paneled library offers an intimate seating area with its gas fireplace, built-in bookcases& leaded glass windows. The formal dining room with stained glass windows offers an elegance of times gone by. With both a front and rear staircase, this four bedroom, two and a half bath home gives you a glimpse of the past with its servants quarters off the main sleeping areas. You will enjoy modern conveniences such as internet and cable television but you can also just forget about every day living and pretend you are living in 1882.
There is a 25.00 per pet fee for up to two small pets. This is a one time fee and it is paid to the cleaning lady. If you bring a pet please clean up after them and watch them. The woodwork and antiques are over 130 years old. Thank you

You will have access to the entire home. Please treat this home with the care it deserves. It is wonderful to be able to experience it as a traveler. You and your family can share in the memory of this historic home.These homes are being turned into condos and apartments. The previous owner bought this home to save it from a developer who was going to turn it into an apartment building. I want people to see the craftsmanship of those days. This home was meant for entertaining and for people to enjoy.

I will be available to guests as much or as little as you see fit. I will definitely show you around first and answer any questions you may have about the home. If you do not want the history of the home. I understand. Some people just want to settle in and enjoy the home. Other people love hearing the stories about the home and it's history.

Notes
Hi Everyone, 1. I want to use this space to tell you about check in and check out. Check in is 4 pm and check out is 10 am. I have a lot of people asking to check in early or check out late. I understand. It's time away and you want to enjoy every minute. I can allow an early check in only if no one has booked the night before your stay. I can allow a late check out only if no one is booked the same day you are set to check out. It takes a minimum of five hours to clean and sanitize in between stays in this 5000 sq ft home. Please consider this when booking this home. I want to limit future conflicts if possible. 2. Anyone wanting to film anything in the home must contact me first. There has been excess wear and tear on the home because of companies filming in the home. There are up to 10 people sometimes. Because of this I am going to have a different fee. The nightly fee will be 300.00 plus any fees. No exceptions.
