Michele’s House is the family home of the Davidson Family, owners of the Smith Island Inn. Michele first came to the Island to providing community health services in 1996, and soon after, purchased the home. Over the years, Islanders began calling the home Michele’s house, and the name stuck.
Michele’s House is a Cape Cod style home that welcomes guests with a variety of flowers as they approach the brick walkway that leads to a small covered entryway into the large living room. The coastal blue living area features a comfortable seating area with a calming comfortable décor and a game table, art desk, and a tufted Queen Anne reading chair.
The dining room features Michele’s grandmother’s cherry dining room set from her childhood home in rural Ohio. It was passed down to Michele by her mother, and has provided family dinners for 4 generations in the McPhee Family along with countless island friends and guests who have graced the home over the years. The kitchen is a simple design with ample storage that is completely stocked with kitchen essentials.
The home features a main level bedroom with soothing green walls and custom made linens, a queen-sized Queen Anne four post bed, cherry dressers, television, and a carved rocking chair that Nathan, a woodworker and carver, carved years ago to celebrate the births of our first two children and much loved dog. Hand painted old windows feature hydrangeas that complement the room color.
The upstairs has two bedrooms and a Jack and Jill bathroom. The upstairs can sleep 10 and features bunk beds. Each room has one double bunk bed on the bottom, one single bottom bunk, and two top bunk single beds; a dresser; and closets. The rooms are commonly referred to as the Girl’s Room and the Boy’s Room representing the bedrooms that accommodate the four Davidson children while on the Island.
