The review written by "amysm" is very accurate. This is a very unique old home with an abundance of history. It is quite large - the hundred-foot porch is a good example. The architecture and layout are very interesting and the owner, Martha is a wealth of knowledge regarding the home's history. As it began as an abode for artists, there are many paintings and other artworks hanging in every room, some of which can be purchased. Sign the guestbook, which will reflect a hundred years of visitors next year. Martha will fix your breakfast when you get up, not at a set time. The east branch of the Whitewater River is five minutes walk from the front porch. There are plenty of activities in the area. Make it a point to visit Metamora and Ainsley's Cafe (both a reasonable drive away). Of course, the lakes and rivers offer plenty of activities as well. I hope to return!
