Interaction with guests
We are always 'on call' - staying next door or providing a neighbor host should any needs arise. We also offer as much friendly interaction as you'd like and can share about our favorite area spots, restaurants, etc. Our property next door is a nature sanctuary, organic farm, small intentional co-housing community, and holistic education/retreat center.
Other things to note
This is a no-shoes home, so bring your cozy slippers if you like something on your feet! We are holistically oriented. Most of our food/beverages are organic, we use natural cleaning products, and we live a healthy lifestyle. Luke has lived in Floyd for over 30 years, so he can advise on how to get the most out of your stay! We often have neighborhood music jams or potlucks, and you might find yourself joining us if you are so inclined -- no pressure!
We rent to peaceful, neat/clean people who respect the space and furnishings/amenities. No loud music/media. At all times, there is no smoking, no drugs, no pets. Non-mobile infants are fine, but we don't recommend coming with small children (toddlers through age 3) due to steep stairway and open railings around the house. Thanks for your understanding and cooperation.
