The SpaceOur home is a sprawling series of additions to a 1776 log cabin and an original interior stone building, which began as a settler's cabin owned by Lucy Ludwell Paradise of Williamsburg, Va. Your accommodation is on the ground floor of a 1998 addition.
A comfortable private suite of 2 rooms and a separate, 3rd room which is your kitchenette, are an apartment-like suite of rooms adjacent to the laundry room, which is the only shared space and is accessed from upstairs through the kitchenette as needed.

Adjacent is a third room which has the kitchen sink and full size refrigerator and full size washer and dryer.
The main room in this suite has king bed (or 2 twins), two comfortable wing chairs with reading lamp, a large marble coffee table, an electric portable infrared fireplace so you will always be warm,(but we have gas heat as well) and a stainless steel table and chairs for your laptop or meals--HDTV/DVD with netflix etc, wireless internet and original art.

The rooms are at the very far end of our home on the ground floor and can be accessed over the lawn between the house and the pool, (there is no sidewalk) and around to the end of the house. Parking is about 80-100 feet from the entrance to this part of the house. We light the outside at night, but care should be taken. Your initial arrival should be arranged before dark for this reason. Not suitable for disabilities, especially in winter.

There are lounge chairs, umbrellas and Adirondack chairs at the pool. You may also use the deck and gas grill.
