The SpaceThe main draw of this BNB is not the room but the ability to have 24/7 access to the "Eclectic Art Studio" and teaching on various art techniques including Zentangle, acrylic painting, mixed media and various scrapbooking techniques. We are close to JoAnn Fabrics for any extra supply needs. I have many scrapbooking tools/machines including a Cricut Explore with unlimited subscription access; cuddlebug, BigShot, Embossing folders, MISTI, Julie Nutting Doll Stamps, 12 x 12 printer, score board, clear stamps, some die cuts, and many more. Tons of scrap paper. A large collection of mixed media items like buttons, bottle caps, charms, vintage jewelry as well as unique ephemera.
Full kitchen. The B part of BNB is access to our pantry, variety of cereals, toast, make your own bacon/eggs... Laid back but you won't starve. Lunch is sandwiches and then our family dinner. Guest AccessMy chiropractic/acupuncture/aromatherapy office is on the front porch. You will receive a 25% discount on any service.
There are essential oils in the house/office so consider this if you have allergies.
Access to the laundry area.
We have a nice back porch and live on an acre lot. In the "way back" there is privacy and a fire pit.
An ice cream shop is within walking distance.
We have puppies and parakeets.
Can't promise quiet, this is our home but we are considerate.
Large screen TV in the family room.
There is a 1/2 bath downstairs and full shared bathroom upstairs. Interaction with GuestsScrapbooking /Craft instruction and good conversation.
Along with my husband, my sister, son and his girlfriend (and her big grey cat named "House") all live here. People come and go all times of the day/evening so if you are a night owl you will not bother anyone. Ok, so no heavy metal music at 3 am.... but watching TV, playing music, singing, etc. are fine downstairs.
Our puppies occasionally have accidents that are cleaned immediately. Yep, this is a real house. The NeighborhoodWe live on a main road. There are neighbors on either side of our home and no one in the back. Getting AroundNo public transportation.
PLENTY of parking.
Smoking is allowed in the basement only. No smoking in the room or living area. Other Things to NoteWe do have an extra fridge so you can bring your own food, drinks, etc.
Some in the home are Christians and some are not. The deal is - if you want to talk about spiritual things, great. If not that is fine also. We are not pushy in the least. That being said, you may hear an amen or hallelujah.
There may also be occasional cuss words. Again, we try to be considerate but can't control visitors.
