I stayed at Chris's place while attending a week long bootcamp at NIH. The location was perfect - just a short drive away. The place was spotless and had everything I needed. Chris was a very thoughtful host and went above and beyond to be sure that I was comfortable. I hi…

You can expect a peaceful retreat, still close enough to venture out. Chris has thought of everything to make your stay feel welcoming. I don't if I have the right words to say how accommodating and nice everything was.

The house is placed in a pleasant environment. The price is fair for the room. The private room is fairly clean and enough big for two people. The wifi is good. The bathroom is not satisfying. No easy access to the shared area (kitchen, ...).

Response from Chris:
We are sorry to hear that our guests found the towels and bed linens not clean. Between all visitors our bedding, linens and towels are washed with hot water on a long cycle in a German Bosch washing machine. Due to the high incidence of allergic reactions we do not use detergents with fragrance. The bathroom is cleaned with organic cleaners first and then wiped down with Lysol wipes. We acknowledge that the bathroom and shower are not brand new and show some wear and tear. We clean dishes and silverware upstairs in the dishwasher with heated drying cycle. The floors are thoroughly vacuum cleaned between all guest's stays. All surfaces are wiped down. We are sorry that our guests did not feel comfortable communicating more clearly about access to our full sized kitchen upstairs. We have an Italian circular staircase which is designed for small spaces. It has appropriate treads and railings and is completely safe. There is also access to our kitchen through the upstairs front door. We have had guests who used our kitchen regularly and many long time guests who never used it at all. We were amiss in not specifically showing the full kitchen to Hamed upon arrival, since they were here for only 2 days. We apologize for that oversight. We also apologize for not meeting Hamed upon arrival. Due to unforeseen circumstances I was unable to be here on time and could not reach my husband to meet them. We will make every effort to do due better in the future. Warm regards Chris Graham & Rick Lohmeyer

My husband, Rick and I enjoy meeting new people either in our home and cabin in the US or while traveling abroad. Being from Germany I speak the language fluently. When traveling we often use airbnb, because we like to have breakfast in bed, find a local home much more enjoyabl…
