About: This solid, sturdy, tight little house was built in the 1940s, & like you find in so many small towns across America, although it's in a residential neighborhood, it was my Dad's office for 30 years until he passed away in 1998. In 2005 my wife, Kathy, & I talked to Mom about renovating, furnishing, & renting it to vacationers, businessmen, & travelers of all sorts. Kathy & I manage the rentals for Mom, whose getting on in years, but still doing well. Our guest lodgers have really enjoyed it, & they have taken good care of it. With a new bathroom, kitchen, appliances, beds, color TV, HS internet, & gas grill out back, this sorta 'cottage or bungalo' has become a 'good fit' for travelers to our small hometown & rural county, 'a quality that's affordable'. Kathy & I grew up in Roxboro & Person County, & we're extremely proud of what will always be home for us. Y'all come. Sincerely, Arcch & Kathy.
