Near BGs downtown: antique stores, restaurants options, a unique coffee shop called Grounds for Thought, a homemade icecream front-Eric's, an Amish bakery that's to die for, Cookie Jar that sells the best choc. chip cookie I've ever tasted, plus they DELIVER cookies. Vito's pizza...cheeseburger to mac&cheese topped pizza. At night..settle at the coffee shop for board&card games, OR join the dance, bar and karaoke nightlife action! My neighborhood is quiet, only about a 5-minute walk to downtown.
What makes our space unique is that guests get their own room AND detached full bathroom with ample space to make it their own. Guests also have full access to in house gym equipment, such as a treadmill, free weights, yoga mats/block/strap, and work out videos. In their room, guests have a table to do any work and can lounge in the beautiful sunroom (remodel finished by end of sept/oct).
Home owners may also be available to pick and drop off guests depending on time and place if they don't have a car. Home owners are very busy, so the guest will be able to treat this like their home in many ways without feeling the obligation to always interact or always see us around--though we provide wonderful conversation!

Interaction with guests
The home owners live at this address, so will be home to some extent during the guest(s) stay.
We are very busy people with work and graduate school, so will be lightly interactive, hopefully allowing the guest to feel at home as much as possible without an obligation to be social. When we do interact in the common areas and upon guest arrival, we are very socialable and kind! Depending on how long your stay, you will catch the couple working out at home in our home gym areas, making deliciously smelling meals, and Allison often works from her office upstairs throughout the day in what she calls her sanctuary.
