Raccoon house was built in the late 1800s as “the Girls’ House”.  It was customary in large families, when children became adolescent to build a separate house for the girls and another for the boys—as far apart as possible.  Originally only one large room with privy out back, it was added to over the decades, ending up as a laundry house in the 80s. 

The laundry room is now a brightly tiled complete kitchen; the bathroom is updated, the large original room serves both as living and sleeping space with one queen “Murphy” style bed and two, single built in bunks.  

If you have unfortunate memories of jangly, uncomfortable Murphy style beds, forget it.  This is an excellent bed. 

During the day, guests have a spacious living room with game table, TV, VCR and fireplace.  The house sleeps two to four.  In winter it has its own heating system. Raccoon House has two parking spaces.

Three nights’ minimum rental.
