Description
The Space

Our guest house is a single unit that used to be 2 units from my Great Grandmas Motel. It was renovated and converted to a guest house for personal use but we don't use it very often so we thought to put it up on Airbnb. Although not the largest of places that you could stay it is quite homie the views are incredible, with 2 rooms and a loft bed, bathroom/plenty of hot water. it is small but can be quite deceiving there is plenty of room for a full family to stay, or 2 couples to have privacy. Each room has a small couch, tv, comfy chair and a good place to do work on a computer if needed. there is coffee maker, 2 small fridges and 2 small microwaves, kitchen sink small kitchen table for 4 and a small breakfast bar for 2 Each side of the unit has ceiling fans & A/C. space heaters also available.

Guest Access

All guests have use of guest house, parking space, covered front porch, barbecue, lawn furniture, fire pit, floats for the lake, canoe, paddles & life vests. kayak & canoe launch on premises. a clothes line is attached to building.

Interaction with Guests

This is our family guest house. Our main house is the white & green one with wraparound porch and on the other side of the guest house is my Aunt Wendys summer home. {its Red}. Most likely myself or one of my family members will be at the main house next door so if you have any questions don't be afraid to come by, there are also plenty of locals who are very friendly and always willing to help if needed.

The Neighborhood

The town of Essex is a wonderful place with a rich history, my Great Great grandfather Captain Mock founded the Essex Charlotte ferry and was also Captain of many Schooners and even the Ticonderoga for a time. My family has lived here for more than 75 years. I am proud to be a 4th generation to maintain our standing in this community. We have kayak/ canoe launch that can be used by any guest and a wonderful fire pit in the back yard of the main house with views of the lake. The town has three restaurants and a nice ice cream shop that serves lunch as well. the environment is safe and well suited for children that I'm sure will most definitely spend their time outside, with the park just down the road and plenty of land to explore around town as well as different museums. farms, shops, scattered around to visit, you won't get bored quickly. Fishing is more than promoted (as long as you're not using dynamite), if you have a jet ski or boat there is a launch $ within walking distance and trailer storage available on our property $.

Getting Around

The C.A.T.S. trails are all over this area for hiking and bike routes are plentiful. Public transportation is very bare you either walk/bike drive or take the ferry which runs from approx. 7am to 8pm other than that there are no buses or trains nearby.

Other Things to Note

The guest house does not have an oven but it does have convection cook top and convection toaster oven, coffee maker, popcorn maker, ice tea jug, small set of plates, mugs, cups, can opener, wine opener, knife set, silverware, a few pots ,pans and microwavable bowls.

Place's rules
While you stay at the Guest house please do your own dishes and remove your own trash, other than that I would suggest brining your own beach towels but a few bath towels, soap shampoo & coffee will be provided.

About James
Visit Profile
Millions of people are using Airbnb to sleep in strangers' homes, beds, and even couches. They have an amazing selection and you can't find their stuff anywhere else. There is a catch: you often need to contact several hosts to actually get a place to stay, so make sure you give yourself some lead time.
