“The porch overhang prevents the direct sun in every room except the sun room,” Pettit said. “The house is very well built and the architecture keeps it cool. The wraparound porch is wonderful.”
Pettit joked Baldwin House is just the "bed" part of "bed and breakfast" but she keeps food items in the house for residents who want a continental breakfast in the morning before they get on with their day.
“The longer my guests are staying here the more food I’ll keep in the house,” Pettit said. “If they’re staying just a night, I’ll keep a dozen eggs, milk, orange juice and bread in the house but if they’re staying a few days I’ll buy more. The house is fully equipped.”
