About Melissa Leach
We are only the 5th owner of this beautiful home built in 1869. We operated our business and raised our family here for 20 years. With our family grown, we now live elsewhere but wanted to share the lovely character of the home with visitors and give a base for experiencing the local recreation, activities, and community.
Melissa Leach purchased this House in 1995
Why Melissa Leach chose Lyndon
This home has been lovingly cared for by each family that resided here. It been evaluated to the equal of a 12 year old home. The antique classic character of the foil wallpaper, wooden staircases, plaster ceiling medallions and moldings is meshed with comforts of modern living. It is spacious but cozy. It has hosted weddings and memorials, and countless spectacular holidays. The 11 foot ceilings make room for an enormous Christmas tree. The Carriage house was a playhouse, a wood working shop after is served its purpose as a barn for horses and carriage storage. The vintage garden plantings still flourish. It is a center for wonderful living in a region that is beautiful and unique.

Everything as indicated.
Such a beautiful house! Lots of space for our group.
This was a great experience.
We will happily do this again.
Beautiful, Spacious Property
I love older homes and was so fortunate to have found this property for a "ladies weekend". I felt as if I was taking care of it for the family during my stay. The rooms are very spacious and the furnishings are cozy. Loved the up-to-date kitchen - comfy beds & pillows - fantastic location. While it's on a main road, we never heard the traffic unless we were outside. I'm already planning my stay the for next September.
Great place, very large. Home as shown, with exception to only having 1&1/2 baths of use to renter. Manager was accessible if needed. Easy to find, clean, close to town, grocery store & restaurants, not really walking distance to any. Burke Mountain & Kingdom Trails within about 15 minutes drive.
