Our house is a quiet house with lots of art collected from our travels and through the many artists friends from whom we have bought art work and or which has been gifted to us. Please be aware that our house is home to two dogs (a very sweet labradoodle, and a new puppy) and three cats who live on the first and second floors but none of the pets have access to the third floor where the guest bedroom and private bath are located. All pets are very friendly and will mostly stay out of your way, but if you have animal allergies and or are afraid of pets i.e., dogs or cats, you may want to consider another place to stay.
Guest have access to the first floor, the kitchen, the refrigerator and the
back yard and to the thrird floor where the guest bedroom and bathroom are located. The fourth floor is a private office and work space. Additional details about the house and the neighborhood, transportation and nearby restaurants and places to eat and shop are available upon arrival and can be found in our Welcome to Our House Guide.
