I've toured the property and used the setting for a couple photoshoots and it's simply breathtaking! The amount of work and care they took bringing these homes back to like is remarkable and I hope to have the opportunity to spend time here often!

First... let us thank you for such an amazing job restoring this old home. We live in a home built in 1902 so we appreciate the time and professional care you took when renovating. Second... what beautiful decor! From the chandeliers, hardwood floors, luxury bathroom, antique touches, to the furniture and comfort. Third... this is the cleanest vacation rental we have ever stayed in, in our travels. We will definitely recommend Havisham House to all our friends.
