About Janet Rhodes

I love to travel and I also love unique architecture. My home was built in 1929 and is categorized as City Cottage style. I am only the third owner. After being built in 1929 it was sold very recently after that. I suspect, but have no proof, that the market crash may have forced the sale of their newly built home. The Campbell family purchased it not long after and lived in this home until I purchased it in 2006. The Campbell's were a notable Lafayette Georgia family. Mr. Campbell was the town Justice of the Peace.

Janet Rhodes purchased this house in 2006

Why Janet Rhodes chose LaFayette

Built in 1929, The North Main House has maintained it's original character. All lighting fixtures are original to the house. Heart pine throughout with heart pine revealed in living room. Transom windows, high ceilings, ornate woodwork, and special details throughout. British craftsman has done most of the restoration work staying true to original aspects of the building, plaster restoration, etc.

What makes this house unique

Conveniently located in the Historic District of Lafayette GA. Close to dining, grocery, drug stores. Also convenient to National Parks and Wildlife Management Areas. Good proximity to Chattanooga TN.

Lovely, charming home

  • 5 of 5

My kids and I loved this house! It was close to everything we needed and was decorated fantastically. Janet is a very gracious host and assured us she was nearby if we needed anything. She even called after we left to tell us we left my son's clothes there (thanks, Steeeeeve).

Comfortable beds

  • 3 of 5

A good night's sleep. Quiet. One of the coolest parts of this house was the record room. My teenage son and I enjoyed listening to old albums.together....if you stay here you should definitely check out the record room. Janet was very responsive and helpful.
