The SpaceWhen you arrive, I will greet you and take you to your door, and show you around. You will have your own key. We think you will love our grounds and the location. There are no highway noises, other than an occasional boat or barge going by! And very possibly, a blue heron or an osprey will call out to you! Fish and turtles are visible in the water often, and the cliffs are accessible, if you enjoy climbing. (My children grew up on them!) Swimming is a great pass time here, as well as fishing. Licenses and bait are available at several nearby convenience stores. And there are a variety of spots for sitting by the water. Neighbors are at a distance, BUT my chickens will talk with you if you head toward their coop! There is an occasional raccoon or possum that comes by, as well as ground hogs, turkeys and deer. (Watch out for them on the road!) Stargazing is wonderful here, especially on the lower rocks by the river. Tranquility is a key word here! Guest AccessThe whole lower level of the house is yours to enjoy. There is one storage closet in the bathroom that is locked off, but there are nearly 500 square feet of space, that will even be wheelchair accessible when completed. The door and stairway to the upper, main floor are locked off and I only use them for access to the area to clean your rooms and take care of the laundry, and only when you out for the day. You have your own entrance, with a short walk to the front of the house, where your car will be parked. It's a quiet neighborhood, so we ask that there be no loud parties, unless its a fireworks time of year, and we will invite you to OUR party!!! Interaction with GuestsI will be glad to make suggestions of a number of activities as well as provide brochures and directions to those, as well as local restaurants, churches, golf courses, parks, etc. There is so much to see and do in this area, all within a reasonable driving distance. Let me know if there is something in particular that you want information about and I will get it. And don't forget! I will send you a list of breakfast choices, and you can let me know what you would like each morning and what time! We have fresh eggs, of course, and everything I prepare is organically grown, or fed organically! The NeighborhoodSeveral of the houses around me are summer cabins or weekend cabins, so there are often no neighbors there. Others are regular residents here. It's a very quiet and pleasant place to be, a great place to de-stress. Getting AroundWe are located about 20-25 miles from town, where you will find many of the attractions, restaurants, etc. But the first 15+ miles are rural, so there is little traffic encountered, other than school zones. The countryside is pleasant, and you drive by the (EMAIL HIDDEN)pared to driving 20 miles across Atlanta, or Nashville, its FAR better! The distance is worth the peaceful place you will be staying. We are centrally located to Dayton and Cleveland also. You will encounter NO traffic going to either town. Looking for a driver? Sign up with Uber! I am a driver, part-time, so you will only have a short wait! Other Things to NoteBecause of a number of projects we have going on inside and outside the house, I may have to redirect some of your walking, depending on where scaffolding or stacks of things may be. But it will very rarely be noisy, and generally not much of an issue. My guest quarters are completed to the point that we won't be working there during your visit, it is very quiet. My goal is for you to be comfortable. Please share information about us with your friends. Thank you so much for visiting!
