The SpaceGuests describe our home "like a resort" that is very comfortable and enjoyable to stay at.
You can be assured that the space is cleaned thoroughly between guests. Twyla is an Infection Prevention nurse. :-)
The furniture is nice and is comfortable, as are the mattresses. Linens are of good quality, and there are plenty of blankets.
Since we are empty nesters, our home is quiet; however, we do welcome well-behaved children. Guest AccessYou will have access to the complete downstairs area.
You may park at front of the house or on one side of the driveway. (Please leave room for us to pull one car out of the garage.)
Feel free to relax in chairs at the covered entrance; enjoy the landscaping and neighborhood, while listening to the soft gurgling fountain.
Enter the front door to a large, inviting entry way.
The house is a daylight ranch style. Follow the carpeted stairs to your carpeted, private living area (large family room with electric fireplace, covered patio, bathroom, hallway, and 1-2 bedrooms).
You are welcome to sit in the chairs on the covered patio. Enjoy the many birds, flowers (in season), and bubble fountain. Interaction with GuestsWe respect your need for privacy.
