Historic Sanford Fire Station turned Airbnb!

Historic Sanford Fire Station turned Airbnb!

Whether it’s a vacation or a staycation, we all love a little r&r. And boy, have we found the perfect place for you! Built in 1887, 130 years later the Sanford Fire Station still stands today. Except instead of being filled with firemen (sorry ladies) and fire station equipment it’s now filled with retro furniture, eclectic art and 4 beds.

We met with Airbnb host Jenn and one of the Fire Station owners, Adam, as they gave us a grand tour of the place. I could talk all day about how fun it would be to stay at this amazing hidden gem that’s located on Palmetto in Downtown Sanford just across the street from Celery City Craft and walking distance to everything downtown has to offer. A perfect getaway for you and your honey, a group of friends or even a rad bachelor party (just be sure to include that little tidbit when you go to book), you can even book this space for your next event as it can be book as a venue, contact Jen for more information about booking this space for your next event, Jen.menzel@jlceng.com and to book this space as an airbnb view link below.

Rather than going on and on, I’ll just stop right here and allow the photos to do the rest of the convincing…although we’re sure you won’t need much.

    What? No mention of the fireman’s ghost that walks on the roof?
