100 years ago the livery studios began it's life as a horse stable or livery at the center of the first block of dock street. Along the way, the future studios were a part of a Ford dealership and a furniture store. In the 1960's, they were re-purposed into individual studios. The space is incredibly functional with seating for 4 (sleeping for 2) and a full kitchen w island.

The studios also include a highly coveted parking pass on our private lot. Access to the property is by key or pass code and everything is right outside your door. The interesting thing about this property is that we are in the heart of everything but the units are slumber quiet.
