In the 1920s, the bungalow was in its heyday and my home harkens back to those glory days.

I've stayed more than a week at Henry's "EREHWON" Arts & Craft Bungalow and I really enjoy my time there. The house is well located in a quiet street around 15 min to downtown by car. The place is shiny-clean, warmly decorated and cozy, just like the photos. Henry's hospitality was fantastic, he even wrote notes giving information on everything...
