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. Moments from Hill Cummorah and all LDS sights. Too much to mention!

Supurb vacation

  • 5 of 5

We do a family vacation every year with children & grandchildren. It has always been to a Lake house or a Beach house. We changed it this year to the Carriage House in Palmyra because it sounded interesting & not a long drive from home. After we booked we wondered & worried if we had done the right thing. Everyone could not have been happier! The house is beautiful, but more importantly Very comfortable & kid/family friendly. It is the the best stocked house we have ever stayed in & the game room kept everyone happy if they couldn't or didn't want to go outside. The pool, decks, fire pit & playground made everyone forget they were in town, not at the shore. We must mention the owners-Christine, Clay & family are available 24/7 for anything you might need, but not intrusive in any way. Very considerate & concerned that everything be comfortable & you are happy with the surroundings. Wonderful family. Highly recommend this Home!

Great family gathering spot!

  • 5 of 5

As my daughter would say, Omazing (Outstandingly Amazing). We booked the property for a family get together and everyone, young and old, had a great time. Between the pool and games in the basement, we never needed to leave the house. The owners were very accommodating and made sure we were all set.

Good time

  • 4 of 5

Nice spacious house with all the amenities listed. Owners gave us our space and were friendly. The grill on the back deck is shot and there is a side apartment connected to the house with a family living in it that was never disclosed...definitely was a surprise to us when we arrived. Overall, everyone and a great time and we'd do it again.

Owner's Response: Thanks for letting us know about the grill on the deck- we will get a replacement tomorrow. If you would have let us know, we could have replaced it during your stay. Don't forget that we are only a text away and here to make your vacation enjoyable. As far as us being in the apartment on the property, we fully disclose that in the listing. We are not there often but, occationally, we stay in town due to my employment. We always try to be as discreet as possible and have been honored to meet some of our wonderful guests. Again, the apartment is totally separate from the rental space and has no joined utilities or entrances etc. Glad to hear you had a nice time in our 1880's Carriage House.

It worked well for us

  • 4 of 5

The spiral staircase was difficult for the adults but the kids had no problem with it. Loved the pool, game room and living room. Very handy to the LDS sites. Made a good base for our family reunion.

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.
