The Overlook Room is filled with a decor of special little finds. It is upstairs with a cozy charm, a twin bed, and southern light with all the comforts for 1, AC (summer), TV/Roku. Having the rest of our home to enjoy makes this a perfect getaway! The large shared bathroom is just down the stairs; there are a couple of other wonderful Airbnb guest rooms in the house. And the garden out back is perfect for relaxing including a hot tub.

I greatly enjoyed my stay in the Urban Haven. It was friendly, cosy and comfortable. The location is super - close to public transportation Downtown - as well as some good micro-breweries. I would recommend this "little slice of Heaven" to anyone!

Gary's place has a characterful hostel feel to it. It's inexpensive, and well located both for the trolley service and walking to Mississippi Avenue where there are plenty of cool bars. The downside of the hostel feel is the queue for the bathroom, and, it being a relatively old …
