Guest bed and bath are located on the back of the house with a view of the pond. Interaction with GuestsOf course interaction is up to the guest. But, I work from home part time and when I do, I am locked in my office. If I am not working, traveling, or adventuring locally, I enjoy spending time with my guests and getting to know you. I am frequently in and out of the house but almost always have cellular access. If not, I provide emergency contact numbers for several local people that can help you with any need. For the most part, you will have the house to yourself. I do have a Great Dane. He's a giant baby and what I like to call my permanent barnacle. He is almost always glued to my side and I take him almost every where I go. He loves all children, people, and other animals. I follow the same rules I expect from my guests with pets. I don't allow him on the couch or bed (any furniture actually), I don't leave him unattended when guests are here, and I scoop his poop like everyone else :) I grew up in this area and spend a lot of time taking advantage of everything this area has to offer. Feel free to ask me for, or about anything! The NeighborhoodThe neighborhood gives you easy access to all major highways (PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN), and US1 for easy travel around the Raleigh-Durham area.
