Address: 30 King Street Rented on Airbnb
1 bedroom, 1 bath, sleeps 2
Historic Hockaday Cottage nestled behind the main house on Spring
Street is right in the heart of the city cradled in a beautiful
private garden and yet only steps to the action of the downtown area.
The cottage is 2 story with a sitting area and bedroom upstairs which
houses a four poster bed with down bedding. The full kitchen and bath
are downstairs. Bath has a soaking tub and shower which sits under an
antique stained glass window.
The cottage was originally a carriage house for horses and carriage
storage for the original owner Homer McLaughlin and his family in the
1880’s. Later he turned the top floor into a small local grocery
where the gentlemen would sit beside the wood stove and play cards.
When we restored the cottage we found old newspapers and playing cards
in the walls as well as tobacco stains on the floors around the
original wood burning stove. I can just imagine the stories that were
made up in that room……
