Laura's Cottage


Live in history. Your 18th century cottage is in the heart of the Landmark Historic District. Have a cup of coffee on the front porch as you watch the horse-drawn carriages clip-clopping to City Market. Smell the jasmine from the courtyard garden on your Juliet balcony. Comfortable and private, it features exposed interior old-growth pine beams, antiques, free private parking, and an authentic sense of place. We live next door for any needs you may have. The 6% hotel tax is included.


 The cottage itself was built in 1799 and features pine beams, antique furnishings, and a Juliet balcony; it’s also been modernized, however, so you’ll have all of today’s conveniences at your beck and call, too.

We don’t know much about Laura, other than the fact that she haunts the cottage; she reportedly lived there when she was alive and grew the most beautiful flowers. According to one account on Road Trippers, she makes herself known by opening windows and turning lights on and off. She’s benign — and gorgeous flowers still grow at her former home.
