When our children headed of to college this unique apartment served as a temporary "empty nest" for us as we sold our larger home & searched for something smaller. *Temporary* ended up being over 3 years! Though the exterior of this cabin was and is covered with not-so-attractive siding years ago AND it was joined with a neighboring building to make a duplex, we felt a pull to purchase it anyway. A quirky, uninspiring exterior is still what you see when arriving, there is even a slight slant that can only come from a more than 100 year old cabin. We have exposed the character & beauty of some of the interior log walls, added live edge walnut shelves in one bedroom, a barn siding light fixture in the kitchen, and vintage roofing metal on the living room shelf to make this a unique & cozy space.
The first floor has a small bedroom w/ twin bed, a spacious living room, galley-type kitchen, and a full bathroom. The kitchen has basics such as pots, pans, dishes, wine opener, coffee maker, coffee, tea, sugar, and granola bars. In addition, there is a filtered water spigot at the kitchen sink. The full bath has plenty of towels, shampoo, conditioner, body wash, and a first-aid kit. Living room has a 42" wall-mounted television with a Roku set to Guest Mode so you can use your own streaming subscriptions for viewing. There is wi-fi available, but no cable. Upstairs you will find a large loft-style bedroom with queen bed with memory foam mattress, a futon that converts to a full size bed, a very large closet, ceiling fan, and 1/2 bath.
We've decorated with a mix of antique, vintage, new, and used furniture and art throughout, which makes this space comfortable, warm, and inviting. The large deck on the rear of the home has a gas grill and a table & several chairs for dining al fresco or enjoying your morning tea while listening to the birds sing. Because of the way the original structure was built the deck is a full story off the ground & not suitable for small children. There is a dedicated driveway with space to park 2 cars. There is very limited public street parking available. We offer self check-in with an electronic deadbolt lock w/ lighted keypad. SLEEPING ARRANGEMENTS ARE AS FOLLOWS: 1 twin bed on first floor, 1 queen bed & a full-size futon on second floor, 1 twin size cot that can be set up in the living room or the master bedroom.

The village of Lithopolis was originally laid out in 1815 as Centerville. In 1836, it was chartered as Lithopolis. The name Lithopolis is derived from the Greek language and means “Stone City” (thus the name of our Airbnb is Stone City Duplex.) The name Lithopolis is a reference to the large deposits of valuable stone that were found in and near the town. The native stone was used in the construction of The Wagnalls Memorial Library. (be sure to check out this beautiful building and treasured landmark.)
