Our home is laid back and lived in and welcoming ! Your room and bathroom will be very clean, but as in most homes; you may see some mail or laundry laying around, a pile of things here or there, or some dishes in the sink. We love a clean home but please expect it to look lived in! :)
Our driveway is rough. It is a 1/2 mile long and has some potholes from the harsh winter. Please expect to have to drive slowly down it and to have to avoid some potholes. Consider the driveway to be an adventure! If you have a rental car, no worries!
We have two dogs and a cat. Our German Shepard looks and sounds very vicious at first, but we can assure you she is really just a big scaredy cat! She will not bite you! She looks scary but she isn't! She is a big baby. She really is more afraid of you than you are of her!
