The SpaceThe room is a private room on the second floor along with a clean, accommodating full bath just feet away. The room includes a firm full size bed with clean cotton sheets, a fresh comforter and fluffy pillows along with a decent size dresser so you won't have to live out of a bag during your stay. Guest AccessThe private room can offer a space where guests can unfurl and gather themselves after a long day. There is an internet cable for wired connectivity and Wi-Fi for wireless connectivity for freedom to move throughout the shared spaces. Guests can relax in our living room with a big screen TV and sound system. We have a large couch for you to stretch out on and enjoy any shows, movies, or music you wish to engage. If you feel like unplugging we can start a fire for you in our family room fireplace and wind down or simply be mesmerized by the dancing flames with a glass of wine or your favorite beverage. If time in the kitchen is what suits your free time you can make pretty much anything you want (we cook everything from Thanksgiving dinner to packages of soup)in the kitchen. The second story bedrooms, basement, and garage are off limits. Interaction with GuestsGuest interaction can be as often as you like, but we are in and out during the day. We cook dinner nearly every night and guests are welcome to join us. We cook clean (mostly fresh veggies and organic or natural meat) but we don't have any of the common food allergies such as gluten or nut.
