The SpaceRemember the CAMP OUTS in your backyard as a kid?
Well now you can CAMP IN at our backyard!
I am pleased with the response I've had from the guests who have visited with us and we've made some modifications to make your stay as comfortable as (URL HIDDEN) a camper.
Clean and comfortable, our personal home away from home is always well-maintained and the generic queen mattress common with campers has been replaced with a Serta queen sized mattress for real comfort.
Although not pictured, there is a flat screen TV with cable TV.
You are welcomed to full use of the camper's kitchen but we ask that you not fry inside the camper. An exterior outlet is available for your use as well as a propane grill with a side burner.
Our camper is set up conveniently close to covered parking with a rear view of a secluded wooded area.
There are some great places to eat in Ruston like the nearby Hot Rods (if you like Bar-B-Que), Scott's Catfish, Landry's Marketplace, and Portico.
Downtown Ruston offers Sundown Tavern, Ponchatoulas, Raw or Ronins (sushi), The Dawg House, plus other convenient chain restaurants for your dining experience.
Located 5 miles northeast of Louisiana Tech University and 2 miles south of Lincoln Parish Park, this home is in a quiet neighborhood with convenient access to HWY 33 and Interstate 20.
We have hosted international students in our home and have had housemates for many years but are new to AirBnB. I know that my experience staying with an AirBnB host was great and we hope to offer the same positive experience to our guests.
Our one acre pond has lots of pet catfish, sunfish and bream to feed and a couple of large mouth bass who just hang around to watch. We also have many pet turtles (when it is warm) who will take bread out of your hands. Just watch your fingers! Lets not forget the bullfrogs and cicadas who sing you to sleep at night in the spring and summer.
A washer and dryer located in the home is available for you use as is a full-sized shower and bathtub if necessary.
We love meeting people and welcome you to visit in our home. A variety of hardwoods and evergreens surrounding the home and their beautiful fall colors inspire our home's decor.
Everyday is Christmas with a Santa Claus collection that remains out all year as well an an eclectic mix of other collections, art, and unique decor.
The studio and workshop behind the house are full of unusual stuff.
I, the artist, photographer, writer, and actress, have a passion for all things artistic and entertaining.
Phil, the pilot, is the more practical and intellectual of us and enjoys a good conversation over a cold beer, glass of scotch, or wine out on the deck looking over the pond.
Our two sons, one at Louisiana Tech and the other in high school, live with us, and our active lifestyles keep us going in all directions.
We have a lab mix named Dash who is always eager to greet new people and quickly accept you as part of the family. She is more of an indoor dog and better serves as area rugs than protector. We have an old gray cat named Storm who is very accepting of all our guests encouraging them to add kibble to her empty dish (but don't because she's on a diet) or joining them by perching on the arm of the club chair.
We do request a $50 cleaning fee and $200 deposit but that pertains to long term guests. The cleaning fee will be refunded to weekend guests who leave the camper in good condition. Guest AccessPond, Laundry, Covered parking when available Interaction with GuestsAs much or as a little as the guest prefer. The NeighborhoodGreat neighbors, relatively quiet (with the exceptions of some very noisy frogs on the pond), and a safe neighborhood.
Our next door neighbor's dogs are yappy but spend most of the day and all night indoors. Getting AroundThere is no public transportation.
We are located right of HWY 33 and only a couple of miles from the interstate. Other Things to NoteWe want your stay to be as comfortable as it can be in our camper.
If you have never stayed in a camper, there are a few things to consider.
LEAKS! If you see water pooling on the floor, that is not a good thing. Please let us know immediate and turn off any running faucets.
There are not enough amps from our barn to the camper to support a combination of electrical appliances going at once.
For example: If the A/C is going (please keep fan on low) and the TV, then you turn on the microwave or start blow drying your hair, the circuit breaker will trip.
In the event we are not available to help you, the breaker box is inside the barn, just left of the white entry door. The switch is not marked, but you will be able to tell which one is tripped.
We keep the water heaters turned off because they make noise when they turn on and off, especially when you are trying to sleep.
You should turn on the water heaters (both propane and electric (there are switches below the counter beside the door) at least 30 minutes before you take a shower or wash dishes. You can leave the electric on, but try to remember to turn the propane switch off.
It is rather difficult to explain how to start the stove/oven. Especially the oven. So please contact us if you are having trouble.
On the burners, you will turn it to the ignite switch first to light it and then adjust the level of the flame. Pots and pan are under the sink. The coffee maker is usually above the sink.
Please, no frying in the camper. Even bacon can make a mess which is why we usually microwave our bacon or cook outdoors. We have a grill that is available for your use. If you want, you may roll it closer to the camper.
