The Space**PLEASE don't send a request unless you have a car. Public transportation is available, though not ideal - 25 min walk to bus stop, then 40 min bus ride to Addison Road Metro station. Bus runs M - F, 6 am - 7 pm only. No weekends or holidays.
A nicely appointed room with a twin bed and lots of sunshine awaits you. This 3 bedroom townhouse backs to the woods, where you'll see the occasional wildlife. Your shared guest bathroom is right outside the room.
In the neighborhood there's a swimming pool, basketball and tennis courts, plenty of walking trails around a lake and through the woods. An outside deck and separate patio invite a place to dine right next to nature. The gas fireplace invites relaxation after a long day or on cold nights. I have a small Yorkshire terrier who follows me around the house and stays out of the guests rooms. My house is your house. It is clean, smoke free and located in a safe, quiet residential area.

Guest AccessYou'll receive a bedroom door key which is optional for you to use (encouraged if the other bedroom is also occupied). I also have a copy to enter in case of emergency or to service the room, in which case I'd notify you in advance. A front door key is also provided. You're free to come and go as you please. Interaction with GuestsI'm a hands-off host as I like to provide guests with their privacy. I am always reachable for questions about the house or advice about the area. Via text message is the best way. Getting AroundPlease don't send a request unless you'll have a car to drive during your visit. My area is rural, so public transportation very infrequent. The bus stops at 7p on weekdays and does not run on weekends.
I provide free on-street and driveway parking for your vehicle in a very safe neighborhood.
