Perfect carriage house

  • 5 of 5

The carriage house is absolutely perfect. It's quaint and charming with high end, comfortable bedding and quality cookware, dishes, etc. The shaded courtyard was a bonus. Owners were very responsive. Will definitely be back.

Gorgeous carriage house in the heart of the historic district

  • 5 of 5

This was a gorgeous property! We stayed in the carriage house for our wedding night and it was just perfect. There is an amazing garden that is perfect to spent time in, the rooms are comfortable and spacious, and the beautiful lighting coming in from the large carriage doors is just perfect. We had so much fun staying here and would definitely recommend a stay! The area is beautiful and historic and a short walk to restaurants and shopping downtown. We had the best time and can’t wait to come back!
