Chuck’s Lovely Adventure in Cincinnati – Swing House

Chuck’s Lovely Adventure in Cincinnati – Swing House


>>SURE THEY DIDN’T INVITE HIM TO THANKSGIVING.>>I’M SURE.>>>IT’S BEEN A MORNING OF EXPLORING HIDDEN GEMS OVER IN CINCINNATI.>>IT’S BEEN FUN. ONE OF THE FIVE CITIES CHUCK’S VISITED AS PART OF THE LOVELY ADVENTURE, SEEKING OUT AMAZING PLACES FOR COUPLES.>>WE HAD A GOOD TIME SO FAR, AND I WANT TO SHOW YOU ONE OF THE MOST INCREDIBLE AND UNEXPECTED HIDDEN GEMS OF OUR WHOLE TRIP. ON A NONDISCRYPT STREET, A HANDFUL OF HOUSES SITS 1373, A NARROW THREE-STORY THAT IS SO MUCH MORE THAN MEETS THE EYE. FROM WHAT I UNDERSTAND, ONE OF THE MOST UNIQUE BED AND BREAKFASTS IN THE WORLD, THE SWING HOUSE IN CINCINNATI, AND I CANNOT WAIT TO SEE IT.>>HEY, CHUCK, HOW ARE YOU! WELCOME!>>GOOD TO SEE YOU, MAN, AND, WOW, THIS IS AS ADVERTISED. WHAT A BEAUTIFUL PLACE YOU HAVE.>>YEAH, THANKS.>>THIS IS A THREE-STORY HOME — ONE STORY PLUS A BASEMENT?>>IT’S AN IDEA I HAD 30 YEARS AGO. SPENDING A LOT OF TIME DOWNTOWN IN BUILDINGS THAT WERE ABANDON. I WANTED TO OPEN ONE UP AND HAVE A SWING THAT YOU CAN JUST EXPERIENCE THE LIFE OF THE HOUSE.>>AND THE SWING, ITSELF, IS REALLY AS MUCH SOMETHING TO DO TO SWING INSIDE A HOUSE, BUT IT’S A SYMBOL AS WELL, RIGHT?>>IT’S ABOUT SLOWING DOWN. JUST KIND OF A TIME PIECE, REFLECTION, SOUNDS, OF COURSE, FUN, THE SWING HOUSE, AND IT IS FUN, BUT IT IS ALSO SOMETHING ABOUT BEING CONTEMPLATIVE ABOUT YOUR LIFE.>>AND YOU COME DOWNSTAIRS, AND, MARK, SURPRISES ARE NOT OVER BECAUSE THERE’S A BEAUTIFUL ART GALLERY THAT YOU HAVE HERE.>>YOU KNOW, ONE THING THAT WAS IMPORTANT FOR ME WAS TO RECLAIM THE MATERIAL INSIDE THE HOUSE. I SAVED A LOT, GOT THE MATERIAL, AND MADE A LOT OF ARTWORK, AND IT’S JUST A SMALL PART OF IT.>>THE FURNITURE IS FLOATING, MARK.>>IT IS.>>TELL ME ABOUT THAT.>>EVERYTHING IS BASED ON THE SWING. IT’S NOT ATTACHED TO THE FLOOR. IT’S ATTACHED TO THE BEAM ABOVE. THE FURNITURE AND THE ARTWORK, ITSELF, ALL REFERENCE FLOATING.>>WHEN YOU ENTER THIS PLACE, I WANT TO BE AN EXPERIENCE WHERE YOU ENTER ANOTHER WORLD.>>THERE IS NO QUESTION THAT IS ANOTHER EXPERIENCE, AND IT’S ALSO AN EXPERIENCE, REALLY, DESIGNED FOR COUPLES. ONCE YOU GO IN THERE, THE TIME FLIES, JUST BECAUSE YOU ARE LOOKING AT EVERYTHING IN THERE. THE MOST BIZARRE THING — THAT’S NOT THE WORD, BUT UNUSUAL THING IS BOLTED FURNITURE. YOU LIE ON THE BED AND LOOK TO THE RIGHT, YOU THINK YOU ARE FLOATING IN AIR, AND THOSE SOUNDS, THOSE SPA-LIKE SOUNDS, CONTINUE THROUGH THE WHOLE HOUSE. IT’S WONDERFUL.>>HE WANTS IT TO BE CONTEMPLATIVE, AND IT IS. I’M TRANSFIXED LIKE HE’S TRYING TO HYPNOTIZE ME.>>IT’S A BED AND BREAKFAST?>>YES, IN THE CAMP WASHINGTON NEIGHBORHOOD. MARK’S NEXT CREATION IS RIGHT NEXT DOOR, AND IT ACTUALLY REPURPOSES THE STEPS FROM INSIDE THE SWING HOUSE. WHEN IT’S DONE, IT WILL BE APTLY NAMED THE STAIR HOUSE. THE SWING HOUSE, BY THE WAY, IS AVAILABLE FOR RENT ON AIRBNB, AND WE HAVE DETAILS ON THAT AS WELL AS OTHER STORIES ONLINE AT WTHR.COM/LOVELYADD WTHR.COM/LOVELYAADVENTURE. THANK YOU, STEVE RHODES. TOMORROW, IT’S LIEUVILLE. I HOPE YOU ARE HUNGRY. WE’RE IN THE KITCHEN TO LEARN ABOUT THE ORIGINAL HOT BROWN SANDWICH, AND I GET TO TEST OUT MY FAVORITE CUBS’ PLAYERS FOOD AT THE LOUISVILLE MUSEUM. WE ARE UNDERGROUND AGAIN FOR A HIGH FLYING GOOD TIME. JOIN US FOR CHUCK’S LOVELY ADVENTURE HERE ON “SUNRISE”
