Habberstad House Common Areas
Built in 1897, our home is a fourteen-room Queen Anne Victorian house. Featuring the modern touches of central air conditioning and WIFI access, each room has its original oak and fir woodwork, each decorated with individual decor.
Step back in time as you enter the foyer and main stairway, lined with its wainscoting made from the precursor to linoleum and fashioned to resemble dark tooled leather. Pass through each of the main floor's eight-foot tall pocket doors and discover the original front parlor and sitting room, with its carved, oak-mantled gas fireplace, which originally housed a coal fireplace that heated the home.
A beautiful, intricate, built-in oak buffet graces the home's dining room. Graceful latticed "moongates" decorate porches on both the first and second floors and are reflected in the carvings of its original and intact dining room buffet. Each of the home's five guest rooms in the main house is furnished with comfortable period furniture and antiques, and each has its own private bathroom.
Having owned an antique business in the past, Nancy brings her knowledge of antiques to the Habberstad House decor. She and Dave have combined modern furnishings and antiques together in a classic, uncluttered, comfortable style that is not overdone. They will share with you the history of this banker's home, including the hospital years. Enjoy the warmth and comfort of the Habberstad House, and you'll want to return, again and again, as so many of our guests have over the years!
