Over the years, we’ve discovered some unique accommodations throughout Ohio.
From converted storage containers to canopy treehouses, Ohio’s tourism slogan really rings true when it comes to interesting places to say. Ohio, you really can find it here. Every time I’m convinced that we’ve seen the most interesting or unique property, something comes along to prove me wrong.
This time, this amazing Lustron house in Dayton has edged into the top spot, and for good reason. It’s an absolute time capsule. Just in case you’ve never heard of a Lustron home, let me give you some back story.
These enameled steel homes were built by the Lustron Corporation during the post-WWII housing boom. The Lustron Plant was right here in Columbus and between 1948-1950, 2,498 pre-fabricated Lustron homes were constructed.
This particular home, located in West Alexandria, Ohio, is a 1,000 square foot model. Built in 1949, the home is decorated with period furniture and accessories and has loads of original features.
The space is ideal for singles, couples, or small groups of adults. The unique magnetic enameled steel surfaces make it fun to play around with provided magnets and the home is located just a short drive from Yellow Springs and Dayton.
The property rents for $75/night and you can book your stay by visiting their Airbnb page. Let’s take a closer look!
From the moment you see the house, you know you’re in for a one-of-a-kind experience.
The enameled steel panels that the Lustron homes are so well known for are in perfect condition.
When you walk inside, you’ll feel immediately transported to the mid-20th century.
This home has been beautifully preserved and it shows in every single room.
There’s no way around it: this place is just plain charming.
Even the bathroom still has its original features.
I’m sure you’re already planning your own getaway to this gem, so I’ll leave the link here for you.
Have fun on your adventure through time, friends!
