The SpaceWe have complete privacy out in a clearing in the woods. Its really lovely just to have such peace and quiet and sounds of nature. We've only owned this place for about a year so it is a work in progress to personalize it, but it is starting to get character and the real awesome thing about the place is the outdoors and our porch. We do have cats so if you are anti cat this is not the place for you, but we keep them out of the guest area. You can smoke but only outside. If you are looking for a fancy place this is not it. It is very humble cottage type home. However, WE LOVE LIVING HERE! Its awesome and comfortable. Guest AccessThe Lower Level is for the guests. There is a tv/family room with many dvds and tv for you to use. There is a bedroom with a queen size bed. There is a roll out chair that turns into a twin bed and a couch that can be used for extra guests. We don't mind if you bring an air mattress to use for more. There is room for that, however $10 per extra person beyond 2. There is a bathroom off the family room that is a full bath, but no tub, only a shower. I have all you need such a tp, shampoo , soap, towels. The area you would use has its' own door and locks on all. We stay upstairs. Our porch , yard, etc , ENJOY! Interaction with GuestsIf we are home we are at your disposal. Any way we can help we are glad to do so. My husband and I are both friendly people. The NeighborhoodRipley is a small quaint town. Its quite charming, but we are very close to the interstate to hit the bigger towns of Charleston our capital city, along with Parkersburg. Athens Ohio is a 45 minute drive from our house and that is one "cool" town, too. Smaller close towns is Point Pleasant and Spencer, WV. Anyone that has visited WV knows we have many beautiful natural places to see. Fayetteville, Thomas, Davis, Seneca Rocks, Dolly Sods, Hinton, etc etc, take off and see them all! We can give you advice on alot of areas. Getting AroundParking is free at our house, but you need your own car. There is not public transport and unless you called it in from Charleston which would be quite expensive.
