If you are a traveler, looking to stay in places that offer you a unique snapshot of history and classic architecture, Airbnb is a gold mine.

You will want to check out the full listing on this Madison County historic property, built in 1856 in Winterset, Iowa. The Legacy Stone House is officially known as the William Anzi Nichols House and is listed on the National Register of Historic Properties.

Guests who stay can freely walk the property near the Stone House BUT furbabies should stay leashed as it's near a busy highway.

Rick & Angela, your Airbnb hosts, live on a Homestead property outside Winterset, but you'll have this one all to yourself. They do own an auto business on the property but assure it won't interfere with your stay. There is one bedroom on the second floor (where the bathroom also is), two twin-size air mattresses for additional guests, and the third can be added upon request. Wikipedia just touches the surface of the historic foundation of this house, with its "locally quarried finished cut and rubble limestone".

It was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1987.

You'll enjoy taking in the history and the views of this classic listing, while also enjoying the comfortable modern amenities, but just a caveat: its proximity to traffic makes for some light resulting noise. It's $140 a night and you'll want to check it out for yourself below.
