Q: What makes your vacation rental special?
A: The Wilbur Guest house was built in 1860 and retains its Victorian charm with original carved woodwork inside and a beautiful round porch to sit on. Sitting on the porch in the evening is heavenly as you look at the stars and moon and fireflies! There is also a big lawn, big enough for croquet and badminton. There's also a playhouse for little girls which my dad, Alton Wilbur, built for me when I was 5. It is over 60 years old and has afforded many children a lot of fun. There are two bikes which belong to the house out in the shed if someone wants to bike on the beautiful country roads.
Q: Do you have a barbecue grill?
A: No, but you are very welcome to bring a firepit, etc.
