The space

The Jaques house was once a carriage house / barn in the mid-1800's for the home next door. It was turned into a house in 1870 by Edward Porter Jaques and his wife Sarah. He was a local Cooper from Connecticut who had a business Building barrels and buckets for agriculture and the Maple industry. Riddled with termites, and nearly falling down, Jim & Jill renovated it in 2015. You can still see one of the exposed Hand-hewn beams in the kitchen and dining room area.

Guest access

There is a key box on the door and a security system with a guest code.

Interaction with guests

Only if the guest requests help or guidance with tourist attractions, shopping, or transportation. We are available by phone 24-hours a day and live and work local so we are at our guests disposal or quietly never seen as they wish.

Other things to note

The house has smart TV and is equipped with a stand by generator. City water and sewer make this an uninterrupted trip in case of inclement weather. Jill is a past President of the Geauga Tourism so she is happy to map out a local winery, a great fishing spot, or winter sporting fun.

Absolutely lovely house right in the heart of Burton. The space was larger than expected, updated nicely and thoughtfully appointed. Perfect home away from home with all the amenities needed for a young family of 5. Jill was very responsive and an excellent host. Thanks for a great stay!
