The SpaceThis is a hundred year old craftsman house in an old mill town in Northern North Carolina. There is a comfortable queen size bed. The house is small and cozy, with a front room and parlour, central hallway, vintage kitchen, dining room and a bathroom tacked onto the back porch. I keep it clean, and will do my best to make you comfortable. Andy Griffith was born in this town, and the tv show Mayberry RFD was patterned after Mount Airy. I am 3 blocks from downtown, a short pleasant walk. There are several diners and shops, many granite churches, ( the largest granite quarry in the world is here) and music festivals almost every weekend in summer, most within an hour drive. I have off street parking, wifi, but no television. There is a washing machine but no drier. I use a clothesline, but if you need a drier there is a laundromat a block away. I am a craftsman, and my house has sewing and quilting equipment and fabrics all over the place. I made most of the quilts on the beds. Guest AccessYou have house privileges. Use the kitchen, Relax in the front room. The house is old, and the bathroom was added to the back porch after the house was built. The bedroom is in the front of the house, so you will have to traverse the small hallway and dining room to get there.
I keep the cabinet above the sink stocked with small toiletries, so if you forget your toothbrush or razor, you will find one there. Shampoo, conditioner and body wash is supplied. Interaction with GuestsI live here, and we will share a bathroom. I will do my best to stay out of your way, if you prefer, or entertain you, if I can.
Let me know if you prefer coffee or tea, and I will be happy to make it in the morning. The NeighborhoodThis is a quiet neighbourhood, and for the most part I have lovely neighbours. There are a couple of rental houses on this street, so I cannot say this will not change. It is very safe here. I love to sit on the porch in the summer evenings, watching the summer storms blow through, and the fire flies float around. Getting AroundThere is no public transit except a couple of cab companies. You will need a car to get here. You can walk to the downtown area in a few minutes Other Things to NotePlease remember, there is no television here. I do have wifi available.
Basically, clean, comfortable bed, private room, shared bath, few frills.
