Interaction with guests
I try to meet with guest and give a quick tour. If not I leave a combination lock box and we have a care taker on the property. I am 100% available via phone or email.
Other things to note
Internet and cable provided, grill and lounge patio chairs outdoor table with umbrella. This is an antique house so the AC is throughout in windows units, not central air.
Here are a few thing I can go over before your checking. I will leave the kitchen/mudroom door unlocked for y'all and inside there will be two sets of keys for you to use on the table in the mudroom. Feel free to use anything that I have in the house I only ask that if it's used up to please replace it for future Guest and myself, also please put the garbage in the trash bin around on the side of the house. Walter my caretaker will remove it.
I prefer a no shoe policy in the house, it just keep things cleaner during your stay. I just purchased a mid size ping pong table which is in the sunroom and I have some games and book is the library, yoga mats are also in the sunroom. Enjoy your time and relax. If you have time I recommend seeing Philip Johnson's Glass House but you must get tickets in advance. and I think they are $40 p/p. Sherwood Island in Westport is a very pretty park on the water for walks. I just love it there!!! Please reach out to me if you have any questions.
Warm Regards, Eliza

Please Clean up after yourself and leave things as you found them. You are welcome to use everything at the house just put it back where you found it and if you use something up just replace it. If you break something please tell me so it can be repaired for the next guest. No shoes on in the house please, I just had the wood floors refinished. Transparency is a must. Friendly house trained pets are allowed (case by case). No additional people are allowed at the house except for those sleeping over within the booking.
Fee for a wedding is an additional $1,500 per day not including the guest staying at the house sleeping over. I also request an additional $1,500 as a security. Insurance for a wedding or film also a must. Filming per day is minimum $1,000 and we must talk about it first. Please do not rent the home and then film after, remember I do have a caretaker whom will report back to me. I know its hard being an artist but please be honest with me we can always work something out :)
If you have a kid, that child is still considered a person and charged as a additional person staying unless its a baby which sleeps in your room.
