While staying at Louisa’s Porch, spend time rocking gently on the front porch, watching fireflies and listening to the crickets. Enjoy the distant church bells heard from the Basilica of St. Lawrence as they toll hourly or play evening concerts. Stroll the tree-lined Montford neighborhood and exchange greetings with the neighbors. The Montford is a safe, quiet, friendly and diverse historic district. Prefer reading and relaxing indoors? Then find a comfortable seat in the Living Room by the fire place.
