Our historic home, built in 1770, is minutes away from the Christiana Mall, Helen Graham Center, University of Delaware-Newark, Delaware Park and many other points of interest. We are surrounded by a park in the Village of Christiana. This is the John Lewden House, listed on The Historic Registry.
The house has been renovated but is still being upgraded and so we are able to offer very reasonable rates for a gorgeous large private room and bath.

This house has everything you could ever want - beautiful scenery, amazing and convenient location, and the kindest people. Staying here has been one of the best experiences of my entire life. Would highly recommend to anyone, no matter the duration of your stay. The house is extremely spacious, clean, cozy, and you get as much privacy or interaction as you'd like! I stayed here for a month and am so glad I had the chance to live with these incredible hosts. Jonnie and Peter are lovely and so full of life, and they made me truly feel at home. The gardens that they've planted are beautiful and every day there is something new blooming! It was an absolute pleasure staying with them in this beautiful and historic home!!

This place is absolutely wonderful!! It has so much charm and it is so gorgeous!!! The property is enormous and old, but very well maintained! The owners are super friendly and laid back. The room is huge and very comfortable. You can't beat the price. Very close to any store you could need. I will always recommend this beautiful place and I hope to stay here in the future.

My daughter, grandson, and I just completed a month-long stay in the Red Room at Jonnie's wonderful historic home. Jonnie and her family are so warm and welcoming! We really appreciate their kindness and their help with answering our many questions about the area and beyond. We love old houses and were happy to have the unique opportunity to stay in this colonial-era house that's also such a comfortable home. The beautiful bathroom is only accessible from the bedroom, so is very private. The bedroom is very spacious and sunny. We would definitely love to stay here again on any future visits to the area.

Jonnie was a fantastic host with a beautiful home. I saw Jonnie a couple times throughout my stay and enjoyed chatting with her every time. The house itself was an absolutely gorgeous, renovated historic home; spacious, light-filled, and comfortable in a great location. The bedroom and bathroom were comfortable and wonderfully decorated. There was always a fresh pot of coffee each morning. Overall a fantastic stay and somewhere I'll definitely want to visit again. A superlative Airbnb experience.

I have always dreamed of owning a B&B. While that dream has not completely come to fruition, AirBNB gives me a chance to experience that dream on a small scale.
My husband is a songwriter and we have a music studio in our home. We are very family oriented and love children, though ours are all grown.
Please come see us. :)
We are in the process of upgrading and renovating both of our homes, but we make every effort to ensure our guest's comfort and peace and our prices have been adjusted to reflect the inconvenience. We are working to make our space even more welcoming and amazing.
