Tish & Valerie can't wait to share their 3200 square-foot house with several extra bedrooms!! The house is a humble, log home built by Valerie's Dad with his own 2 hands in the 1980's. Although it is not so modern on the inside, we have all comforts you need for a pleasant stay. All areas except private rooms are common. You can watch TV, cook in the kitchen, hang out with the goats, chickens, donkey, dogs, & cats! YES, we have lightning fast wifi!!!
Gary Sorensen, (RIP 7-24-14) built this house with his own two hands starting in 1985. He had done so many repair jobs, he decided he could build his own house himself! He did an amazing job! However, some things have that "home made" look & the house isn't as modern as other homes. However, this does not affect safety or functionality of the home. Just be aware that it's a country farm house & has its own charm that way instead of being cosmetically perfect.
You will be sharing the house with Tish & Valerie, 3 dogs, & a cat. We occasionally have other long term renters here as well. We have three available bedrooms. The "Big Tex Room" is the largest master suite with its own bathroom. It is on a first come first serve basis. If that room is occupied, you may also choose from the "Green Room," or downstairs on the fold out couch bed. The couch bed is also in its own bedroom. If you have many children or a larger party, we also have two additional couches downstairs that can be slept on.
We love people! If you like to chat, Tish loves that! If you prefer solitude & space, let us know. Tish is a morning person, & Valerie's a night owl!
We have a master suite (Big Tex Room) with its own bathroom upstairs (unless another renter is in town), or downstairs bedroom with queen size couch pullout bed. The shower is upstairs, but there is a toilet downstairs should you choose to sleep there. It would be more private since Tish & Valerie both sleep upstairs.
Although this is called Air B&B, we do not cook your breakfast. Sonic is only one mile north on Highway 205 at the intersection of Highway 550 inside the Shell gas station. There is coffee & a keurig & you are welcome to that & making your own eggs or any other food you bring to fix for yourself.
We have 2 great dane dogs and one mixed breed rescue. They are all female, fixed & friendly. They bark at normal dog stimulants - door knocks, mail man, school bus kids walking down street, etc. Their names are Sydney (blue great dane - 14 years old), Tyler (black & white great dane - 8 yrs old), and Sugarbear (white mix - 5 years old). They get along well with others as long as the guest animals can fit into their pack dynamic. If you do have a pet, it would be helpful to bring your own crate, or keep them in your room unless they are going out to go potty. We don't have a leash law out here, so that will be fun for your dogs to run. Just make sure they don't run away!
Guest room doors do not lock. However, we will not disturb you when in your room with the door closed.
Other doors in the house have door stops in them to keep them open. Please keep door stops in place. If Sugarbear gets behind a closed door & can't get out, she damages the door trying to escape! This is why we have the door stops. :)
We also have 1 cat, Cassidy.
If you will be arriving late, please let us know & we will give you the access code for the key in the lock box. Otherwise, as soon as I receive notification of your booking, I will message you requesting info on your ETA. Or you can message me first Can't wait to meet u! See u soon!! ~Tish & Valerie Guest AccessYou will have a fireplace, kitchen, washer dryer, iron, super fast wifi, peace & quiet!! PLEASE ASK FOR WHATEVER AMENITIES YOU ARE INTERESTED IN USING. The wifi info should pop up after your reservation is confirmed. Most of the time we just leave the front doors unlocked. So you won't need to be concerned about getting locked out. There are 3 bedrooms to choose from. 2 are upstairs The one downstairs is the most private, since all other bedrooms are upstairs. But you will still have to come upstairs to shower. Interaction with Guests**If there is anything you need please don't hesitate to ask! Call, text, email, message Valerie & let us know how we can make sure you give us 5 stars!

Let us know if you prefer to be quiet or to be social. We are very friendly & love to meet people from all over the world, but if you prefer your solitude, we will honor that as well. Valerie is Realtor & an uber/Lyft driver & is gone most evenings. Tish has many activities during the day, but is home most evenings. Maybe we can all go to Southern Junction if you're here a Wed-Sat! Live music nightly & 2for1steaks Wed! The NeighborhoodIn the country, we wave at neighbors passing each other on the small dirt roads full of potholes. You can walk around the entire neighborhood block in the middle of the night & be perfectly safe. You can see all the stars at night & hear coyotes. Getting AroundWe are really too far out for any public transportation but Valerie drives for Lyft and Uber & is available to do private rides. Other Things to NoteThe road leading up to our house has many potholes. The county doesn't claim the road, and neither does the city. So most likely it will never be fixed. Just drive super slowly as to not damage your car. Also, the farm animals make noises early in the morning. **If there is anything you need please don't hesitate to ask!
