The SpaceThis bright room is comfortable for two. Open your door and you are outside. The view from your window is every changing and stunning. In the morning the birds have a meal at the birdfeeder - and you can see them from your bed. Tons of nature. Deer, woodchucks, groundhogs, and tons of birds! Artists welcome! (We have easels too.) Please check through the photos for more. Also, the room is being renovated - the photos are pre-renovation. Your room is about 15x15 with a separate private sink area (which also have a microwave and 1/2 refrigerator - not the mini-one) and bathroom (with a toilet and shower). Guest AccessThe room is an "in-law" set-up with a separate entry. The guests don't have access to the house and vice versa. There is no access to a kitchen. Interaction with GuestsWe have minimal interaction with guests. We like giving our guests privacy. We are at the other end of the house and don't hear you. But, we are quite friendly and glad to help! We are in and out of the house, and are quiet, except for an occasional bird outburst (our bird pets). We definitely do not need you to be quiet at all and honor your privacy. Late check-ins are no problem. Late checkouts usually are fine too. The NeighborhoodThe neighborhood is quiet. The houses are far apart (most people have 2-4 acres). It's a fabulous area. The stars are amazing here. There are stables and hiking within driving distance (one hiking spot only 1 mile away). Getting AroundIt's rural here; there is no public transport. A car is a necessity. You can park right in front of your room... Depending on the snow, of course. There are taxis, but you have to wait for them and relatively expensive. BUT Depending on your schedule, we also can host you without a car! We can pick you up from the Middletown train station (NJ transit, Pt Jervis line), drive you to the house, pick up groceries for you when we are going to shop, etc. So you can get away from the City, if needed. Other Things to NoteWe provide sheets, blankets, soap, paper plates, plastic eating utensils, salt/pepper, and towels. We try to put something in the fridge like apples or oranges, waters and whatever we think of. We wash everything - You are getting washed pillows, blankets, bedspreads, everything. During your stay, we wash long term clients towels and sheets weekly, if you want.
Another thing is that we have geese and parrots. Intermittently (such as when we come or go... They welcome us home... Or if there is something interesting to them on TV), there my be a burst of honking or bird calls. People say they don't hear them, but there is a second door within your space to close to assure you are not disturbed.
