    Linda and George Megee have beautifully restored it to its original flair. Your hosts originate from the Philadelphia area and spent twenty years in South Florida. The home and grounds show a warm Philadelphia sophistication and the eclectic style of South Beach. Their home is filled with antiques, art, & creative treasures for you to indulg
