The SpaceOur spacious guest room was recently redecorated. Fresh paint on walls and trim, new bedding, decor, etc., will ensure a comfortable, restful stay. At the time of this writing, the bathroom is being remodeled, and it will be ready by mid-December. The loft will have a cozy reading chair and extra seating, allowing people traveling together to find their own space.
This is the perfect place to unplug and unwind. There is no TV in the room, and Wi-Fi is available but unreliable. Instead, the guest room is stocked with a selection of books, games, jigsaw puzzles, and even an adult coloring book!
The queen bed is a Select Comfort (now called Sleep Number), and is adjustable on both sides to individual preferences. I like a soft bed and my husband likes a firm one, so this is a perfect answer for us! We hope you'll like it, too. The twin bed is from Ikea, and is somewhat firm. Because I am picky about pillows, we offer a variety for you to choose from. They all have allergen covers and are washed frequently. Even the removable covers on the decorator pillows are washed frequently for your protection. Guest AccessYou're welcome to our kitchen and living room - where we do have a TV and DVD player. During nice weather, you might enjoy getting out into nature - watching for deer and other wildlife - or fishing from the pond bank. Down by the pond is a covered shelter area with a porch swing under cover, and a fire pit nearby. Interaction with GuestsI'll be happy to welcome you and show you around, answer any questions, etc. I will probably be home during your entire stay, but spend quite a bit of time in my home office. I'll be accessible, but not underfoot. The NeighborhoodWe're in the country. Our home is on a beautiful 40 acres, with a large pond and trees around the perimeter of the property. Our road is gravel, and we're about 1/2 mile off blacktop. There is a fair amount of traffic that goes by, and on a dry day, the dust can be a bit annoying when you're outside and near the house. (If you have severe allergies, this might be important to know.) Getting AroundWe're just 60 miles northeast of Kansas City (probably 70 from the airport), two miles south of Hamilton (and US Hwy. 36), and about 30 miles from Jamesport. Interstate 35 is about 15 miles west of us. Hamilton has a grocery store, gas stations, and a handful of restaurants (ranging from burgers and Subway to BBQ and a fine dining place), along with the phenomenal Missouri Star Quilt Company. Other Things to NoteWe currently have no pets, but had two cats until recently. The carpets have been shampooed since then, but I wanted to mention it, in case you have severe allergies.
I generally have Monday and Tuesday nights blocked off and unavailable for bookings, but if you will arrive before Sunday and need to stay into the week, I may be able to make arrangements for you. Just ask.
