1930's house in Lewisburg's Historical District - The Verdie May House

Family-friendly cottage in Lewisburg
Location, location, location! The 'Verdie May House' is an adorable 1930's cottage located in the heart of Lewisburg's Historical District - only a short 5 minute stroll to restaurants, cafes and shopping. Enjoy exploring the historical sites or relaxing on the spacious porch with a cool drink. This newly renovated home is the perfect place to enjoy Lewisburg!

This cosy 1930's cottage offers the opportunity to step back in time and immerse yourself in Lewisburg's roaring 30's (but with modern comforts!). This freshly renovated cottage has an amazing history - it was home to several local identities (including Eileen Kramer, an Australian National Treasure dancer and acclaimed local furniture maker Ozzi May and his wife, Verdie). The cottage is our favorite place for hanging out with family and friends - particularly as we can walk everywhere (and leave the car at home)!. We love using the cottage as a base for exploring Lewisburg and know you will too! It's the perfect 'home away from home'!
The house is small (great for 1-4 people) and has a spacious, well equipped kitchen (with new appliances), comfortable living area, study area with large desk, two comfortable bedrooms (with luxury Australian cotton linens) , separate laundry, a cute upstairs bathroom (with a clawfoot bathtub) and wonderful new large downstairs bathroom (featuring a shower with Bluetooth speaker connection for music and plush towels).
Original artwork and crafts by local artists, (including my Dad, Ronald Refsland), is found throughout the house.
The large covered porch is perfect for relaxing anytime of the day (even when it rains), people watching or for outdoor dining. You will enjoy views of Old Stone Church and the cemetery (directly across the street), Carnegie Hall and other historical sites. We have beautiful and comfortable outdoor furniture, including an antique iron outdoor dining table. In summer flowers burst out around the porch.

The large patio (using original stone and local river rocks custom designed by a local artisan) behind the house is a more private space - with the original outdoor fireplace available for BBQ's or making s'mores. We also have a smoker for more adventurous cooks.
The large front yard is perfect for playing a friendly (or competitive!) game of Molkky or croquet (we have the games for you),

The queen bed and two twin beds have brand new quality mattresses with 100% cotton Australian linens and duvets and fluffy pillows. The towels are 100% cotton. We are particular about dust and cleanliness as our daughter has allergies.
The city water is perfect drinking water.

If you would like some tasty food waiting in the cottage for you on arrival or during your stay, my sister in law, Beth, has a bakery business (Fresh Flours – at the local Farmers Market). For my guests, she will take phone/email orders and deliver directly to the cottage. She does amazing quiche, granola and pies (about 20 different kinds – all fantastic!). If you are interested, drop her an email at beth@freshflours.com (she lives about 2 minutes away from the cottage) and she can email the menu. I know what it is like travelling and sometimes it is nice to have an easy (and delicious) local options waiting when you arrive (or during your visit).

The Verdie May Cottage is the perfect 'home away from home' to enjoy your stay in Lewisburg! Come and enjoy!

Cottage Living
This sweet home was absolutely precious. My husband and I will be back for sure. The entire house, even the outside was exactly what any one could possibly wish for. The town was amazing as well. My husband and I laughed saying that our pictures must have been shown to all the residents because everyone, and I mean literally everyone, was so kind and helpful. Everyone we passed on the sidewalk smiled and would even greet us. We were there for only three nights, but could easily stay a week.

Liked: Cleanliness, amenities, property conditions & facilities
The property was lovely and worked well for our group. However, emails directed through the Expedia website did not reach the owner. This was confusing. We finally tried the alternative VRBO portal--which did contact the owner. If we had not used the latter, we would have been very frustrated. The opening to the upstairs bathroom is very short and tall people (like me) hit their heads the first times entering. The floor riser from kitchen to living areas can cause stumbling if not paying attention to the different heights. These are minor complaints when compared to the overall positive impression the property conveyed.
