    I linked to an old photo, up top in “Links & Additional Info”.

    This is (or was?) a bed and breakfast called “Garden Path Inn B&B”: FB Link

    1885 Italianate.

    Colorful! There’s a cute little darling across the street too.

    I believe the word on that historical marker should be “renovated” rather than “restored”. This is a nice house, but much too much decor for a B&B than original features to me. Still, could be a nice place to have a family.

      I don’t think it’s fair to say they renovated it rather than restored, you don’t know what it could have looked like before and we only see a few photos of the main floor rooms.

      Adding, the few rooms we see, look like they have original trim, doors and possibly ceilings. If they aren’t, then they did a great job doing whatever they may have done to it.

    Bummer that they don’t show the staircase. That’s always the first thing I look for.

    I too wish there were pictures of the stairs and better pictures of the rooms. So many of the photos seem to be entirely focused on the furniture rather than the rooms. (i.e.: Pictures of beds, rather than of rooms that have beds in them.) This looks like a remarkable house that surely must have some very interesting features, but we don’t get to see any of them. Pity.

    Seems like the pictures are focused on accommodations for the B&B. Not to sell the house. Still…what I can see is BEAUTIFUL.
    Yummy but I NEED to see stairs.

    This home is a lovely home full of pretty rooms that would make me want to drink sweet tea. The icing on the cake for me is the pool!

    don’t understand why the ceilings are so low? Now sure about It doesn’t scream to me as totally restored, but like Kelly said, we have no idea what it looked like before. Just doesn’t seem as it should be on the inside and if the windows were replaced, that would be sad.

      The low ceiling rooms at the end of the photos are the mother in law suite, the main home has normal height ceilings for this style home.
