Pictured along with myself (on right) is Neil Riordan(on left). Neil, now age 81 along with his brother John , now aged 86, who grew up in this house from 1931 until 1953.

Great house great location
Property is exactly as described and we loved it!
A hidden gem!
If u like history, this house is it. It's like stepping back in time. .. everything was amazing, especially the view. . Can't wait to go back.
My 3rd time visiting and I’m sure we’ll be back. We love Jerome, and this house has all the character one could want. The outdoor patio overlooking Jerome is amazing, and you can park your car and walk down the stairs to town. Love it!
We enjoyed our stay, and would definitely recommend it to others! The views were amazing!
Had a wonderful time, great view, and like the history of the house. Neighbors were very nice. My 2nd stay at this place.
Absolute wonder of a home!
My friend is enthralled with Jerome and it's history so when her birthday plans were being discussed, renting a home was the obvious choice! The history of this house is absolutely intriguing and the attention to detail in the rehab process is incredible. The views from the porch are breathtaking and the swing was so much fun. We will definitely be back!
Jerome is a nationally Certified former Ghost and Historic town. The John Riordan House is easy walking distance to the center of town.
