Ian purchased this Farmhouse in 2000
Why Ian chose Tallmadge
I was not looking for a home when I bought this property. As a child I grew up on a dairy farm in the country and this property immediately made me feel totally at home while still being very conveniently located. I fell in love at first sight. I immediately put my previous home up for sale in the city of Akron and bought this property.
What makes this Farmhouse unique
***NOTE pictures of an enclosed patio with an indoor BBQ that is built into the chimney. Charcoal, not gas. All surrounding properties are larger lots and were part of the original farm this house was part of. The house sits back from the road and the area is full of large oak and maple trees that give it a very established beautiful environment. The original house on this farm was built in 1826 and is across from this house. The original family built my house in 1895 and I am only the third owner of this house since it was built. The 1826 house was part of the Underground Railroad, and my house was built for possible use for that purpose also, but since the Civil War was recently over at the time very little, if any use was made of if for that purpose.

Staying for Aunt's 90th Birthday
This was a great stay and Ian and his Mom, Lynn, are very accommodating with all our needs! Having lots of room to get around and our pet was very happy and relaxed. Not a lot of homes in the area to vacation so this will be on our list for any future visits to the area. The convenience to our Aunt's home and our old home town was perfect. We especially enjoyed making our own "Farm House Breakfast". Thank you again for allowing us to enjoy your home.
Great property, highly responsive property manager.
Everything was perfect
We were very happy with our stay in Tallmadge. The property was beautiful and centrally located for visiting family in the area. We used the back porch every morning for breakfast and watched the squirrels, rabbits & deer in the fields. We would love to stay again.
Bed mattress was a saggy in the middle otherwise no problems. Property was convenient and there was plenty of room for all my toys. Enjoyed seeing family and friends.
Sorry about that. Thanks for brining it to our attention. We will address the issue.
Comfortable and inviting home away from home
Large, clean home tucked away on a private driveway with surrounding trees. Four of us had a great one-night stay - lots of room, a well-stocked kitchen, and dog-friendly. In addition, Ian is very receptive and accessible; he responded to my messages within minutes. Thank you for a wonderful stay!
This was a pleasant surprise
The home was clean and smelled fresh. It was so quiet and peaceful. The horses in the backyard made for a great view. I would definitely stay here again.
