The SpaceMidway provides a lovely location to get back to nature and enjoy the beautiful night sky. Birdfeeders can be seen from the porch so guests may enjoy our hummingbirds and other native birds. The porch also includes a dining area which is a very nice place to enjoy morning coffee. Many vintage items have been used in the decorating and rooms are clean and comfortable . We offer an old photo album so guests may see the before and after of the renovations. Our outdoor glider is a nice way to relax and view the meadows and woodland.
The guest house area consists of the following. (Please note that there is no full kitchen.)
The king room is upstairs and would share the bathroom with double sinks, if the full room is occupied. This is the largest bedroom and is decorated with white wicker furnishings.
The queen room is downstairs and has a private bathroom with small shower. It is painted in a very relaxing green, and is next to the enclosed porch and common areas.

Guest AccessMidway is only about one mile off of Rt. 60 Anderson Highway down a short gravel road. Rooms have private keys to room and house. Guests should be aware that the stairway is a bit steep and ceilings are lower than new construction. There are several step downs between rooms and some floors are not completely level. There are large trees on property with exposed roots. Those walking should be careful. We do not recommend our house for those with any issues walking.
