Yes, navigating this stretch of Elm St. can be aggravating three months of the year. But when tourist season ends, peace and quiet returns and then the central location of this circa 1880 home is ideal. Charming wood beams and tin ceilings are complemented by what the listing says is an updated roof and hot water heater. Attached barn/ garage functions as storage or additional living space.
