Almost Heaven Bed and Breakfast

Close to the shopping and dining on Main Street but far enough away to provide some privacy, Almost Heaven has a rich history of entertaining guests. It was built in 1927 and still has its original paneled wainscoting, French doors, heart of pine floors, and fireplaces, as well as some antiques you’ll find scattered about. The view from the deck is breathtaking year-round!

Kennedy, and Richard Nixon. You can rent this historic house on AirBnb here.
