About the owner: I am Jeff Longwell. I have lived in Plattsburg for over 11 years. My "day job" is a computer programmer which I do from my home.
Why the Owner Chose Plattsburg, MO, USA:
This was my 1st vacation rental property in Plattsburg. In the beginning never had any intention of using the home as a 'business.' It started out as simply a project: a home to fix up and sell that was located next door. But once got involved in working on this home, could bear to give it up - becoming very attached to it but didn't have a clue what to do with it. Then one day had an idea to turn it into a vacation rental, and the rest as they say, is history.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Upon arriving, the 2 story Victorian style house's history stands out with 'painted lady' details, unique front porch with 'sleeping deck' above it. Upon entry into the home the original woodwork, floors, and room layout brings you back to another era. Unique attributes like the original parlor, pocket door, transoms above the doors, coal burning insert and wood mantel, along with period furnishings are found throughout the house. There are 3 very large windows which still have the original stained glass at the top.
