About the Property

Unique Historic National Register Condo on Front Street, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath,

PARK YOUR CAR AND FORGET IT!!!

Property is located on the 400 block of South Front. Pedestrian close to everything downtown and is the best location in the Historic District on the best block downtown.

The Charity Prescott Home is an incredible example of preservtion thru an adaptive reuse strategy. Called one of the true gems of downtown and a focal point of the prettiest block downtown., The Prescott is now a collection of 5 fully self contained residences listings (VRBO listings - 952940, 952958, etc).

Incredible porch, veranda, neighbors and neighborhood. Literally the best location in town. Just 2 blocks from the restaurants and shops but is in the quiet Mansion District of downtown and comes with with parking. This is a special place and we hope you enjoy the unique modern furnishings along with the history.

If you are coming to downtown to be downtown and enjoy dinner, theater, shopping and a cocktail then our historic condos may be the perfect fit.

Please see our other listing at VRBO 185501, 64471 and 634522.

Keep time on the porch by watching the hourly carriages go by and say hello to the "driver"'


We had the first vacation rental in the Historic District over a decade ago and we now have 24 in total. They are all our homes and we try to do a great job of making sure you have everything you need during your stay and that your lodging is unique and always a great location. We will help with any and all questions you may have about the location, the town and things to do.

All of our units and listings have everything for a short or long stay - coffee maker and coffee, hairdryer, soaps, shampoos, Linens, pots, pans, cable, wifi, parking, great neighbors and best locations.

We look forward to having you stay with us on your Vacation in the Port City.
