About Christine Cole

My husband and I have been married 22 years and purchased The Carriage House 14 years ago. We have been lovingly restoring it ever since. It is an expansive home full of character, antiques and historic flavor!

We travel often as a family and believe that travel is a great form of life-long learning! We own three homes and strive to have each one inspire families to explore our beautiful country. Each home has a story to tell!

Christine Cole purchased this house in 2002

Our property is set up for large family living. We offer a private, fully fenced, heated pool, central air conditioning, expansive decking for entertaining, 2 grills, a game room, first floor laundry, 2 fireplaces and 3 updated full bathrooms (one with a jacuzzi tub). We have kept the historic nature of the home while continuing to improve the space to be comfortable for a modern lifestyle.

This home is truly unique and one of a kind. There is nothing else like it- beautiful woodwork and history throughout.

What makes this house unique

Large Great Room. Incredible natural woodwork. Original Carriage House doors located in the Game Room. High ceilings, solid slate slab floors in kitchen. Too much to mention!

Beautiful home, owner was wonderful

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here with 8 other adult women for a golf weekend and we had a blast. The carriage house is absolutely beautiful with more than enough room for us all. The pool was opened and refreshing. We were lucky and had great weather for the weekend but if we had to stay in there was plenty to do with the dart board, foose ball, air hockey and ping pong tables (which we did indulge in at night). Chris was very accommodating and never intrusive. Very quaint beautiful town. Even though the houses are close together, the backyard, deck and pool area are quite private. We all enjoyed it immensely and are definitely considering returning next year!

Great house for a family with kids

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for a weekend family getaway. It comfortably slept 7 adults and 5 kids (ages 2 - 5). There was plenty of space and a nice open area for the family to watch movies together. We also loved the big kitchen table - perfect for family dinners.

The little extras were fantastic - especially for the kids. A pool, a swingset, a game room and all of the Just Dance Kids games you could imagine!

Overall, we had a wonderful time and would highly recommend this house. It was clean, everything was easy to manage, and the host was VERY responsive.

Everything we expected it to be

  • 5 of 5

11 of us rented this house for a bachelorette weekend and it was perfect! Plenty of space so we never felt like we were on top of each other. Fully stocked with anything you may need. The host was very responsive and answered all of our questions. The weather didn't allow for the pool to be open but it looked amazing and the outside deck is beautiful! We are definitely going to come back and stay here again!!
