A Victorian house transformed into a bed-and-breakfast in the 1993 hit movie "Groundhog Day" could soon play the same role on a permanent basis. The aging star just needs a little work and maybe some fresh makeup.

Everton Martin and Karla Stewart Martin bought the 114-year-old home in Woodstock after searching for two years for a place that would fulfill their dream of owning a bed-and-breakfast.

Initially unaware of the landmark's celebrity status, the couple hopes to give the rambling three-story house a new lease on life thanks to a $500,000 renovation and the City Council's blessing, which is expected Tuesday.
