No parties, no kids under 12, no exceptions. Everyone staying at the house must be on the reservation.

Expect comforts like wifi, keyless entry, and a Keurig and the unexpected in our Wonderland bathroom or the record player with everything from Barry White to Beethoven. Our bookshelves are filled with story books and quirky, quick reads.

Full comfort for 4, we can accommodate up to 6 if we know in advance by adding an inflatable queen into the third floor and extending the dining table.

The space
If you rent the house, no other rooms will be rented out!

We want you to feel at home in our home. Use the porches, the tv, record player, games, candles, incense, stove, coffee and tea like it’s your own home!

Use anything you find in the bathroom from bath bombs to to candles plus a first aid basket. Our personal items will be moved out of the bathrooms to secure areas, so there’s no need to worry.

We do ask that you avoid use of the closets and dressers except for the gray room which is completely cleared out. The gray room closet also has extra blankets and pillows.

In the kitchen we ask that you use the items labeled with a green “Guests”. Coffee and tea are happily provided at the station! Everything should be easy to access on the kitchen cart or in the cart drawer. Milk, almond milk and liquid stevia will be found in the fridge.

My husband is a neurology physician assistant. We have a semi-wild backyard, lots of art and antiques, and you'll probably find me in the kitchen experimenting for my company which focuses on foraged foods. I was a professional ballroom dance instructor to adults teaching private lessons full time for 12 years, and I’m transitioning to a new career.
