The SpaceRoom with a fold down couch. This bed is a bit shorter and a bit wider than a twin size. A foam cover makes it comfy, however a sensitive sleeper will notice a small dip in the middle. There are also a chair, nightstand, dresser, shelves, and full-length mirror. No closet, but there is a rack with hangers nearby in the laundry room.
There is a living space across the hall with couch, TV and DVD player (basic channels, no cable), Wii, and gas stove for cold winter days and nights. This space may be shared if the other bedroom downstairs is booked.
The bathroom is shared and located upstairs. I have another bedroom with a private bathroom listed on Airbnb downstairs. If that room is not booked you are welcome to use that bathroom.
Two entries. The front door, and a side door that opens to the garage and driveway (which some guests prefer as a private entrance).
Please note I have two other listings and there may be other guests here during your stay. Also, I host female guests only when my children are with me, which is every other week.

Wifi Interaction with GuestsI prefer to be here in person to check-in on the first day. I'll give you a tour and any pertinent information. I enjoy talking with my guests but your privacy is highly respected.
If circumstances prevent me from being here when you check in there is a lockbox that can be used to enter the front door. The NeighborhoodQuiet street, very safe. Close to quaint downtown White Bear Lake which has restaurants/bars, gift shops, a bakery, olive oil stores, book store, library, farmers markets and really fun "Marketfest" festivals in the summer, and soft-serve ice cream joint (open April-Oct). There's a nice walking trail along White Bear Lake near downtown. In the warm months you can sit outside at restaurants and bars on the lake. In the chilly cold winters there are lots of local parks for cross country skiing and of course LOTS of lakes for ice fishing. White Bear is a really nice, family oriented community. Getting AroundYou will probably need your own car. There are buses that go to St Paul and Minneapolis Mon-Fri in the am and pm. Other Things to NoteI have my three children every other week. The room is downstairs and we all stay upstairs during your stay. I accept female guests only when my kids are with me.
