The sweet town of Fayetteville has amazing restaurants, fun shops, local art and music, an escape room, an ice cream shop, a weekly Farmer’s Market and a great playground, too!

The house itself feels peaceful and private, but it is right in the heart of Fayetteville. It is a historic house with the charm and quirks of many years. It also has modern amenities to make for a unique but comfortable experience.

Built in 1900, this lovely home retains its old house charm with great modern updates. Upon arrival, you’ll be greeted by towering trees surrounding the property, as well as a covered front porch that expands across the front of the home, inviting you to enjoy morning coffee and evening sunsets.

Inside, the home boasts 1,840 square feet of tastefully decorated living space, featuring everything needed in a true home-away-from-home. Lounge on the comfy couches in the living area during your downtime, or take a seat at the bar in the kitchen area while the chef of the group cooks up a tasty meal in the fully equipped kitchen!

When you’re in need of a good night’s rest, retreat to one of the 3 bedrooms, all of which have cozy beds to promise sweet dreams.

Fire up the grill on the private back deck surrounded by the rock garden, climb the steps to have a drink in the Adirondacks, and enjoy your friends and family while listening to the quiet rhythm of small town life.
