Please note, in keeping with a simple lifestyle, there is a tv but no cable/satellite tv in the shared living room....never has been. Make your fun and live your life! But at the end of the day, I do have a small selection of dvd's that I am happy to share with you (as well as books, card games, and puzzles).
Guests will have use of their guestroom, the shared bathroom, kitchen, living, and dining area.
There is a hot beverage station in the kitchen for guests to use at any time.
I didn't specify wifi in the listing because it can be slow sometimes or unavailable due to weather, therefore not 100% all the time. But, I do have it, and guests are welcome to use it. Just realize that due to our rural setting, weather may affect performance. Cell phone reception can be spotty.
Guests are welcome to enjoy the back porch for dining or basking in the sun with a book.
Interaction with guests
Depending on your check in time I may or may not be present when you arrive. We will work that out together. I am happy to spend some time with guests or to let them alone as the case may be. Usually, I'm at work, and I like my own space to chill, but I don't mind chatting for a bit.
Other things to note
Please be considerate of my family home. I don't charge a cleaning fee, so kindly clean up after yourself as you would in your own home.
Jamie, the dog is very friendly and enjoys company. Jody, the cat, is an outdoor cat and is rarely in the main house.
Also, I am in the process of converting the house's former kitchen into a living space. There might be a little work going on in that area, but it is not in the main living space, so no worries.
Please have a complete profile, clear photo, and positive reviews before requesting to book. No third party bookings.
