The SpaceThe pictures shown are Unit #3, as well as some of the common areas of the house. It is the entire 3rd floor of the house, with 2 bedrooms, private bathroom, kitchen, living room and dining room space. There is a small refrigerator. There is a bathtub, but no shower. And it is a bit cozy in the bathtub! (no headspace, you actually have to sit/lay in the tub. See the pictures) It really is cute and charming, but if you prefer a shower, the bathrooms on the main and 2nd floor both have shower/baths. Guest AccessIn addition to your private space, there are two shared bathrooms (on the 2nd floor and main floor), as well as a shared kitchen (if you'd prefer that to your private kitchenette) and living room on the main floor. Kitchen, refrigerator, bathroom, laundry, etc are all fully stocked and available for your use. Bring your own food of course! Interaction with GuestsThe property manager, Jim, lives on site in Unit #4. He is often around throughout the day and in the evenings and is available to give you information about the area and help out with any major issues. The NeighborhoodThe home is on the north side of historic Wheeling Island. Most of the homes in the area we built in the 1880's to 1920's. Supposedly, the city of Wheeling has the most still standing Victorian homes in the nation.
Unfortunately, the island has seen better days. Driving around the island, you will see plenty of big, old, beautiful homes in serious need of some TLC! But that is turning around, as more younger people are moving in and putting in the time and care to restore these beautiful old homes.

(URL HIDDEN) Getting AroundWheeling is a smaller city, there is not a lot of public transportation. Access to a vehicle is recommended. But the bus does stop just outside of the house and there are several bus routes that would take you anywhere you needed to go.
