In the bathroom it is stocked with towels, there's a full size washer and dryer to keep your clothes clean, for those guests who like the freshness of of outdoor drying feel free to use the clothes line in the yard. We stock the Cottage with enough laundry detergent & dryer sheets for a few days.
In the Cottage we ask for a smoke free environment, outside there is a barrel with sand for the cigarette butts. If it is raining (or not) feel free to smoke in the screened in porch of the main house.
The water is supplied by a well and filtered, although we stock bottled water, feel free to taste the clean water from the tap.
The term "The Cottage" is a kind of tongue-in-cheek name we gave to a transformed garage, it's really just a cool efficient space for up to 6 people.
Our goal is to provide a true "home away from home" experience, like "I feel at home here" (even if it's just for a few days) We will give you a brief tour of the features on arrival (if you arrive late, we're cool with that. We will make sure you can get in by yourselves and we'll check in with you in the morning, if you want) after that the Cottage is yours. We will knock on the door, as it's your house, and will not enter when you leave during your stay. We have had more then a few first time Airbnb guests and you can see by our reviews we are getting closer to the "Home away from home" goal.
When you arrive, we've had guests drive from distant locations, there are some
beverages and snacks and most importantly Breakfast, it's one of the letters in Airbnb. You will find the refrigerator and cupboards stocked with breakfast items, so after your journey get a good night rest and wake up to breakfast supplies at the ready.
We do have a "cleaning fee" I have a full time job and I'm usually not available at the time for cleaning so I pay a fair wage to those who keep the cottage clean.
Feel free to make a reservation, ask a lot of questions, and if it's not for you it's okay to cancel.

Quiet neighborhood, you will probably hear birds chirping and singing in the morning.
No dogs are in the Cottage you may see small dogs, Topsy and Gracie, they will be kept away although they may bark at you from a distance, Topsy a Bichon likes attention he has a tail, Gracie - Cocker Poo and she is getting old and cranky very short tail we recommend you leave her alone, and Coco the Chihuahua is our latest addition, may say hello.
We are semi-rural, the worst animal you may see is a deer driving up the driveway occasionally they may activate the motion sensor light usually in the winter months. Deer tend to scatter when you see them.
Off in the distance you will hear far away trains passing by, it's not loud at our location but if you listen you can hear them. Feel free to walk around the property and enjoy the forest and grassy areas.
