Goodhart’s Inn on Central

Take a step back in time at this historic Victorian inn

 

by Lauren Gooch - January 15, 2020

Built in 1872, this unique Victorian home is filled with old-fashioned charm and beautiful antiques to transport you back to a simpler time. Each treasured piece of furniture complements the building’s intricate architecture, truly capturing the romance of the Victorian period. Jeff and Laura Goodhart, co-owners of Goodhart’s Inn on Central, have spent the past two years furnishing the home with hundreds of memorabilia from the 1800s.

The library features a heavily-carved 1800s table, a Victorian settee with a deep-carved gilded frame, an early 1800s baby carriage, and a Victrola with an abundance of records to play. The Hardy Boys and Nancy Drew books line the wooden bookcase, and board games are also available for guests to focus on simple forms of entertainment during their stay.

In the living room, light streams through the window when you slide open the beautifully crafted built-in shutters. Light is also present through a 1920s pan chandelier, a piano lamp (an adjustable kerosene-style lamp), and a Bradley and Hubbard Banquet Lamp. Located on the etagere are many different Stereo Viewers, which use light to trick your eyes into seeing 3D images!

More banquet lamps are located in the dining room, along with 1800s furniture sets, a pan chandelier, and an inlaid wood wine cart, completely stocked with wine. Keep an eye out for future wine tasting events! There is also a fully-stocked Butler’s pantry in the dining room as well. For a unique musical experience, check out the Chautauqua Roller Organ, which plays five different songs from the Victorian time period.

The sitting room features a beautiful, hand-painted butterfly table and an exquisite Victorian dollhouse.

Three bedrooms are available for guests to rent. The first-floor bedroom houses a queen bed with a hand-carved headboard, another pan chandelier, a walk-in closet with lights, and an old fireplace that has been turned into an additional closet. The attached bathroom includes full amenities (soaps, shampoos, sea salts, lotions, etc.), a personal heater, and a built-in seat inside the shower.

The two bedrooms on the second floor are rented as one unit, along with the upstairs bathroom. One bedroom contains a king bed, and the other, a queen bed. The beds fully encompass the Victorian style by displaying two twin 1800s headboards.

In the kitchen is an etagere (originated in England) from the upper class. It’s especially unique because of its barley-twisted pillars. A fireplace gives the kitchen a cozy ambience, and a charming carousel decoration adorns a small end table on its right.

Many appliances are available for guests to use in the kitchen, such as a microwave, refrigerator, freezer, toaster-oven, sink, dishwasher, stove, and coffee-maker.

Jeff is currently working on restoring gas chandeliers to be in the house. His business, Polish This, Inc., specializes in antique restoring. If you have any antiques that need to be restored, feel free to contact him at (484) 269-9450.

Guests can enjoy the outdoors by relaxing on the porch or watching birds peacefully eat from the bird feeders. There are also antique roses, called Zephirine Drouhin roses, which are non-genetically modified. Although they have less petals than normal roses, they smell even better!

Other distinctive features of the Airbnb include handmade copper flowers, red velvet chairs, gold-leaf wallpaper, and Eastlake designed architecture.

Jeff and Laura are more than happy to accommodate their guests, and their hospitality is remarkable. They go above and beyond by offering free bikes, kayaks, blankets, picnic baskets (complete with wine glasses, plates, cutting boards, salt and pepper shakers, etc.), hand warmers, 24 types of tea, and snacks throughout the house. They will even shuttle the bikes or kayaks in their truck for a small fee. Jeff and Laura’s hospitality is reflected in their careful attention to detail, and sincere mission to make their guests’ experience one of a kind.

To make a reservation, please visit their Airbnb listing here. The price for the downstairs bedroom is $125/night. The price for the two bedrooms upstairs (rented as one unit) is $125/night during the week, and $150/night on weekends.
