Our place is close to restaurants and dining, nightlife, family activities, and downtown festivals. We are the closest accommodations to the downtown square for business travelers and festival attendees.. You’ll love my place for the kitchen if you want to cook or just hang out, the high ceilings, the comfortable living space, and the location. It is convenient, yet quiet...the perfect combination.. Our place is good for couples, solo adventurers, business travelers, and families (with kids).

The space

This is a fully furnished, fully functional, stand-alone unit. In addition to the queen bedroom, there is a full-size pull out couch in the living area; making this perfect for business travelers looking for a quiet retreat, or families up to four individuals who appreciate a central location in an historical neighborhood. One reserved parking space.

Guest access

Swim and workout facilities are available at the YMCA just across the street. Guests who do not hold a reciprocal YMCA membership must check in advance with your host for a pass.

Interaction with guests

When owners are on site, guests are welcomed personally and given a short tour. The owner is always available on site, or by phone, to help answer any questions and solve any issues.

Other things to note

We do have a few adorable outdoor kitties on site that were rescued from a life of doom. They are polite and so friendly that they will sometimes throw themselves down to receive your love. They are easily handled; and if you are not a cat aficionado, they will not bother you.
Guests may arrange to enjoy our gourmet breakfast in the main house formal dining room at extra charge, and when available. Please contact your host in advance.

Wonderful, quiet cottage. The grounds were beautiful and my girlfriend and I felt comfortable during our entire stay. The layout was great and the location of the cottage was near everything we wanted to see and do. Do not pass on this cottage!

It'a nice, there are only 4blocks from the house to old downtown, you can go there by walk in 15min. There are a few good restaurants there. Barbara is very warm heart.

The cottage was charming, clean and comfortable. The host, Barbara, was very welcoming and helpful. The location is great and is not far from the town square. This is a great value and I would definitely stay here again.

Nice place, secluded and quiet, but still close to many amenities.

Thanks for the feedback about the ambient light seeping in, Adam. We appreciate knowing what will help improve our offering; and are considering a remedy.

Barbara and her husband were very friendly and accommodating! The carriage house is wonderfully isolated from the rest of a beautiful old BnB. The hot tub was lovely, the garden was pleasant. The wooden floor seems to be original with all the creaks and noises. The parking was right below the window. Bring your eye mask as the lights from outside are a bit bright. Body wash and shampoo were provided which is always helpful. It was very easy to get in (there were emailed instructions and the code box worked flawlessly). The bed was soft and the kitchen well equipped. The temperature is set at a locked 74 degrees. We found it to be comfortable but you have to speak to the hostess to be able to change it. The location was excellent, very central and the house, grounds and hosts had a lot of cozy charm.

Response from Barbara:
Hi Richelle – Thanks for the thoughtful feedback. Apologies about the juice. That was our faux pas. The coffee was put out fresh just prior to your arrival, as were the packaged food items, so those were fine. We will not be changing our main house policy regarding children, as it is not fair to our other guests to subject them to screaming/crying in the night, or at the breakfast table. We also do not supply cribs or high chairs. We have tried accommodating parents that assure us they have an angel; however, reality in an unfamiliar setting proves the unpredictability of youngsters. It is not classified as discrimination, as we are first and foremost a private residence with the right to accept or reject any guests as we see fit. Policy on our website reads: Please note we are unable to accommodate small children under 10 years old and pets in the main house. However, we can allow small children, and dogs less than 50 pounds, in the Rockway Carriage House. We do, however, offer a full bed and breakfast service to families staying in the Rockway when that space is booked through our website vs Air BnB. A full hot breakfast is delivered and set up to the dining table, with special attention to age-appropriate selections for children. This service also includes daily bed-making, emptying of trash, fresh washcloths, and fresh towels when needed….much like a typical hotel setting. Air BnB does not allow us to advertise other businesses on their site – and they do strip out phone numbers and websites from our messages. That said, you are welcome to book through our bed and breakfast website booking engine vs the Air BnB booking engine. We do not include breakfast as an add-on with our Air BnB bookings since it is a free-standing unit which does not require us to be at home when guests are there.
