We live across the street from the local Stillwater elementary, so the area is quiet at night and protected. We live a few miles from campus, and all the local places to eat. Great location to stay. Always clean, and kept up with. Doesn't ever smell like animals. We keep up with that religiously. We never want someone to feel that our house "smelled" while staying.
We are only renting out 2 or 1 (Depending when in the year). Till we have a better understanding of how this works.
