Owner info

Year Purchased: 1989

About the owner: A nature loving, grandchild loving, simple country gal.

Why the Owner Chose Canton:
This location holds very dear memories to our family. We literally rebuilt this house from scratch. We bought the 54 acre property with this house on it. We were told that we just needed to tear it down. We saw the potential and decided to keep the house. After a couple of years of work, we moved in and have been in love with the property since then. We raised our two boys (men now) in this home. We have many memories here. We hope that you make some memories of your own here and that you enjoy it as much as we enjoy sharing our treasure with you. Our guests satisfaction is our priority.

The Unique Benefits at this Farmhouse:
We have decided to not install internet/wi-fi at our location. We believe that it takes away from your 'getting away' vacation. Come to truly relax and disconnect for a while. If you truly need an internet connection. There are two libraries and other facilities that have an open wi-fi connection.
