My partner and I own this wonderful space and we want to share it with people who are traveling. We are both professionals and grad students. We have cats and a dog but all rooms are critter free. We are easy going and happy people. We have one permanent roommate who is also a professional and muscian. We like to watch sports, entertain (dinner parties w/ live music) and enjoy life. We are a stree and drama free zone.
