The SpacePeaceful and safe, my home is located off of hwy 180 east. in Squaw Valley, CA.
Squaw valley is the nearest town,or gateway, to Kings Canyon/Sequoia National park.
THE AIRBNB PRICE AT MY HOME INCLUDES HEALTHY BREAKFAST AND DINNER.
The bed in the prayer room is a full (double) bed, with memory foam topper for added comfort, and comfortable pillows. (two persons)
The 3rd person can sleep in the padded,wide, recliner chair, or a folding cot is available for a 3rd person if needed. The cot will have a feather bed on top, and bedding. The room has much more walking space if the recliner chair is used, the cot will leave little room for walking around in the room.
extra blankets and pillows are in the room as well.
THE PRAYER ROOM is one of two rooms in my home that are available through Airbnb. (to see the other room, type in the URL bar:
www.airbnb.com/rooms then search for listing #(PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN))
it is rare that both rooms are rented at the same time but does happen.
If both guest rooms are occupied, the guest bathroom will be shared between all guests.
As a guest in my home, you may eat whenever you are hungry, snacks and fruit are available on request.
Many types of caffeinated and decaffeinated tea herbal teas and coffee are available.
My well water is better than bottled water lol You can fill up your water containers here.
The house is 1200 sq ft, with 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms,on 5 acres of land with mountain view. fully fenced. Gentle winds blow across the land and nature's many voices are heard, crickets, birds, hawks etc. The sky is beautiful at night with millions of stars shining.
My pets include a Turtle Dove, named Sarah, who coos, and sits often on my head or shoulder she is 17 yrs old.
Outside, Simba, my 17 yr old gray cat, hunts, and waits for someone to pet him. He is quite lovable.
During winter and spring months, I have a friend's horses grazing my land...I call them my "organic lawn mowers" lol
My living room is cozy... and the kitchen is fully stocked with everything for international cooking & available for your use.
You can relax and make yourself at home while you are here. The elevation is 2800 ft., just below the snow line,but we do get a few days of snow in winter months. Very simple, creative and comfortable... THE PRAYER ROOM is a separate room, just to the left of the front entry door. It has 2 covered french doors and windows. THE PRAYER ROOM is very private....
This space is very comfortable and set up as a place to pray, meditate, study and sleep.
PRAYER ROOM HAS ONLY ONE REAL BED,IT IS A FULL-SIZE MATTRESS WITH A MEMORY FOAM TOPPER (for added comfort)
A 3RD GUEST CAN SLEEP IN THE ROOM WITH A PORTABLE COT( added in advance, if desired)
( If only two guests are in the room and desire not to share the full sized bed, the cot can be added as a 2nd bed, upon request, prior to your arrival)
IF YOU CHOOSE TO MAKE USE OF THE COT, IT WILL HAVE A" FEATHER BED" on top of the cot, and normal twin size bedding. Please note that it will be more "cozy", tighter space, with the cot in the room.
The room can thus accommodate(in cozy fashion) 3 people if necessary, two on the bed, one on the cot.
The comfortable recliner chair in the room is also a spot where guests may read a favorite book, soak in soft healing music(provided) and meditate. dozing off to sleep is likely. the recliner chair has a heating pad attached.
The room is designed to retreat from a busy cluttered life to find a place of healing, rest, peace ,comfort, calm , renewal & solitude in order to regroup, find direction and renew your strength for the journey of life...or just catch up on much-needed sleep.
I suggest that you bring a journal to take notes of your thoughts and discoveries.
Many guests have reported having helpful dreams. There are dream interpretation books in the prayer room, just in case :)
The prayer room has everything you will need for a spiritual journey,available for your use, including concordances,study books,anointing oils,candles,communion supplies and cups, peaceful music CD s, and Bibles,of various versions. The recliner chair, lamp, and small table make for a good study area.
The prayer room is located close to the bathroom and kitchen, and dim lights are on outside the room, to make venturing to the bathroom easy during the night.
the bathroom is fully stocked with toiletries( for both men and women) and plenty of clean towels.
I have hosted many women and couples from other states and countries over the years,and love having guests! This is why I decided to join Airbnb!

(see photos of bathroom, kitchen and living room areas) Interaction with GuestsI enjoy guests in my home.
I tend to be easy going, peace loving, and desire that all my guests feel at home and rested....well fed, and ready for a good day of exploring in our beautiful area.
During daytime hours, so long as everyone is awake, guests who like to play and have fun, are invited to experience native American style drumming with me, on my "Abba"(pow wow) drum, which is a large drum made from cedar wood and buffalo hide. just let me know, if you want to try it. It is quite loud, but fun indeed.
I have a high level of interaction with my guests... talks, stories under the stars, and sharing meals with good conversation.
I adapt well to the schedules of my guests,
striving to make your stay as easy and as comfortable as possible.
I do go to bed at night by 9:30 pm most nights, and rise up before dawn, in the mornings at 4:00 am, but guests can sleep in as late as you wish, in the mornings.
Staying quietly up late at night is also fine for you, butI am not likely to stay up late with you lol
Guests in my home are honored as extended family.
My goal is that guests will feel at home,and have a unique and rewarding experience, and that we learn something beautiful from one another.
When leaving my home, I pray that everyone leaves in a well rested, happy and peaceful state of mind.... and we have a smiling heart with the memories. The NeighborhoodSAFE PEACEFUL AREA...MOST PEOPLE DO NOT EVEN LOCK THEIR DOORS! SOUNDS OF NATURE AND NO CITY NOISE.
