This particular Airbnb on Sayles Boulevard is known as "Hattie's House," and it's on the National Registry as an 1889-build Victorian home. Hattie's House can host up to 14 guests and has a total of six bedrooms, with seven beds and 6.5 bathrooms. In the backyard, you will discover an incredible swimming pool, a relaxing hot tub, and beautiful landscaping throughout the property.

Hattie and Henry Sayles, Sr., built this house about 1889, at a time when few homes existed on present-day Sayles Avenue. Portions of the house, including a rear addition built sometime between 1895 and 1903, were remodeled after fire damage in 1941. Extensive renovations of the house began in 1974.
The house is an excellent example of a late Victorian-era dwelling. It features finely-executed Queen Anne details, including porches with turned wood posts and balusters, jigsawn brackets and frieze, shingled and decorative wood gable ends, and a decorative brick chimney. - Historical Marker Database
