Other things to note
I have two friendly dogs who are around the common spaces but they are not allowed upstairs near the bedrooms. Please note: the rooms are on the second floor and involve using the stairs. For those who have mobility challenges, this might not be a good fit.
We don't allow smoking in or near the house, but you are welcome to sit out on the back patio and smoke.
Originally from So. California, I live in Chicago and my work takes me to many places. I also love to travel! I love airbnb because it is an excellent way to get to know a place and the people who live and work there.
