You will start to relax as soon as you drive down the driveway. You might see deer grazing outside your bedroom window in the morning and evening and there are lots of birds to watch. A morning walk by the pond is a great way to start your day. Please read the entire description before reserving, there are some important limitations you must be aware of and agree to.
Enjoy a peaceful night with privacy in a very safe neighborhood whether you are visiting the area or just passing through. This cute little guest house is next to but separate from the main house. You have your own entrance, kitchenette, full bath, large bedroom with a queen size bed, and an upstairs loft with 4 twin beds all covered with hand made quilts. The bathroom is in the bedroom making this house more appropriate for families than 2 couples or unrelated adults.
PLEASE NOTE: Because of the size of the water heater and house we allow a maximum of 4 adults or family of 6.
PLEASE READ: The internet is wireless and there is no password. As a rural location we are on satellite and are on metered data. That means that we have about 1 Gb of data per day to share among all of us. This means no streaming video or audio, no online games or chat, no downloading of cell phone updates and no photo intensive sites like Pinterest and Instagram. We adhere to these rules so that you have bandwidth to do general surfing for email and finding local things to do and we hope that you will extend the same courtesy to us and the other Airbnb guests that visit this month.
We have a TV for playing movies from our classic DVD collection. Cell phone service can be spotty here (especially if you are not on Verizon).
The kitchen has a refrigerator, small stove, microwave, toaster oven, coffee maker with cooking utensils and pots and pans.
We provide clean linens, tea and coffee. Grocery stores are nearby (5 – 6 miles) if you want to bring your own supplies. We use fragrance-free products in cleaning the house and linens. People with fragrance allergies should be comfortable here.
The only rules are no smoking and no pets.
All children must be included in the guest count. Children under 2 are not free.
Contact me before reserving with any questions. I do not accept reservation requests without your acknowledgement that you have read the full description and understand and agree to the Internet and space limitations.

While you are staying there it's your home. All we ask is that you not smoke and avoid using lots of fragrance products like scented candles, febreeze and air fresheners.
The only downfall of living in the country is the lack of internal options and that's why we have satellite with metered data on 1 Gb of data per day for all of us to share. You may use the Internet for general surfing but not for streaming audio and video, online games and chat or other data intensive activities like Pinterest.
You MUST confirm that you have read and agree before I can confirm your booking.
