The SpaceOur landmark farmhouse from 1892 was one of the first houses in town, built before the official town was plotted. We offer a quiet retreat from the hustle and bustle of city living. It's usually sunny here. The morning doves and quail serve as nature's alarm clock. You may hear occasional trains in the distance. The large private attic bedroom is located upstairs and you will be the only one allowed up there during your stay. The chimney and stairs act as a natural partition that separates the queen bed from the other beds in the space. There is a large ceiling fan and one new window. There is a Queen size bed big enough for two and a full size futon bed that is suitable for a couple or one person. There is also a twin bed that would accommodate another adult or child. There is a vanity desk where you can use your laptop and store paperwork and dresser to store your clothes. For your internet needs, wi-fi is provided. There is also a color television with a dvd player. Guest AccessYour access will include the guest room, bathroom, kitchen and dining areas as well as the outdoor seating areas. Breakfast is provided with espresso or tea and a delicious organic homemade waffle. If you would like to prepare meat, please feel free to do so on our grill outside as we are vegetarians. Otherwise, there are a few places to eat in town.
We provide clean towels and sheets. Please bring your slippers, we are a "no shoe" household. Interaction with GuestsWe work from home and shall be available to answer questions during breakfast or in the early evening. We eat most of our meals outside during the Summer and we have dining areas in both the front and back of our house with territorial views for you to enjoy. Since your suite is located upstairs and we live downstairs, you can count on your privacy. The NeighborhoodOdessa is a small friendly quiet wheat farming community Just 17 miles from I-90.
