Interaction with GuestsWe may or may not be here, depending on when you come. We can be as visible as you would like us to be.
If we ARE home, we are usually out and about.
We will meet you on the day you arrive to hand you the key, and answer any questions you may have.
If you should need anything, you can either leave a note, or give us a jingle.
We are a smoke-free, pet-free household.
Always close doors when entering or exiting the home. Since this is a rural area, we do not want any non-human visitors walking in. The NeighborhoodWe are on a town road, but our house sits on a hill. In the summer, house cannot be seen from the street as there are lots of trees. In the winter there is no problem finding the house. Getting AroundMost people here travel by car, but there IS a commuter parking lot, a 5 minute walk from our house, at the corner of our street, in the event you want to take a bus.
We have a garage that is currently NOT available for parking. However, we live on a private hill, and there is plenty of parking on our property.
Bradley International Airport is about 30 minutes from our home. All the car rental companies are right there, for your convenience. Other Things to NoteFun:
Although we are considered rural, our house sits on a hill off a main road, so we are a walk away from Collinsville, which is a touristy little town of Canton, where people from all over the world love to come and visit and take in the beauty of the vintage homes, and quaint shops, and cayaking, boating, nice fine mom and pop dineries. And don't forget, PLEASE, don't forget the walk along the Farmington River and the bridge, which is a place that is always full of locals and tourists, and you can pretty much do anything that is wholesome.....ride your bikes, go tubing, take lovely walks, have an awesome pizza, glass of wine, and just about anything you want at the Lasalle Market. Your mind and creation is limitless. Come and enjoy the wealth of our wholesomeness and excitement that awaiting to be discovered.
