The SpaceSpread out over 1500 sq ft of living space -- a large studio styled loft bedroom with all linens (futon sofa - sleeps 2, six twin beds; we also have a rollaway cot), a spacious den stocked with board games, an awesome dining room with a view of the landscape, and a kitchenette with microwave only (no stove, no oven).
By kitchenette, we do mean kitchenette. The same amenities you would find in a hotel kitchenette, except full sized: refrigerator, microwave, coffee pot for tea and coffee, counter space, and storage. There is no oven/stove in the kitchenette. The kitchenette does also have an electric griddle, a toaster, dishware, and paper goods.
This is a two family home. We live on one side of the property. A stay here means that you share walls with our family. Once you enter the main entrance, the entrance to your private living area is directly in front of you. The entrance to our family's area is to the left. We are happy to be as present or as invisible as you'd like during your stay. Guest AccessIn addition to over 1500 sq ft of living space and a rolling landscape to picnic on.
We have a 700 sq ft yurt on the property. If the yurt is not in use, you have the option to schedule a private evening restorative yoga class at an additional cost or set aside some time for meditation. Access to the yurt must be prearranged and is not guaranteed.
You have access to the outdoor fire pit; great for roasting marshmallows or hotdogs (wood is provided). You may bring your own smoky joe type grill as well for preparing a larger variety of foods like hamburgers, steaks, fish, etc. Interaction with GuestsWe live on the property and will be happy to help make your stay relaxed and enjoyable or be "invisible" so that you can enjoy your time away. The NeighborhoodVisit our Diamond Hill Vineyard (just 8 minutes from the property); Phantom Farms for homemade local fudge, fresh baked goods, coffee, sandwiches and more (across the street from the vineyard); bring your own bike and head down to the Blackstone River and enjoy some kayaking, a long walk or more biking on the path; or drive over to Lincoln Woods State Park for a dip in the lake, try paddleboarding, canoeing or horseback riding. For basic needs, a pharmacy, a large grocery store and a Target are just five minutes from the property. In that same plaza, there is also a movie theatre, a bowling alley/arcade, a burger joint and a Starbucks. Getting AroundWe do recommend that you have your own car. You will have designated parking on the property. While you are here, it feels as though you are in an oasis on your own, yet our property is ideally located just 5 minutes from our major highways; a 15 minute drive from Providence and just 60 minutes from Boston.
