This beautiful cottage in the backyard of our home was constructed 10 years ago and we continually update the space. With high ceiling, hardwood floors, full kitchen and a porch overlooking the garden, it is truly a refuge.There is a queen bed in the unit with a new mattress plus a single futon. We have recently also installed a washer and dryer and a flat screen smart TV for use with Apple TV ( you will need to log in to your personal account)

The space
The cottage sits in a garden setting. We have a single futon for extra sleeping options. Linens (100% cotton) are provided for futon.
The bathroom is European style which means that it is one open space that has a sink, toilet and shower. There is a glass shower door between the area for showering and the toilet but the entire space shares the same floor. This means that the bathroom floor will be wet after a shower. There is a bath mat outside the bathroom door to dry feet as well as another to keep feet dry inside the bathroom. The bathroom door is also glass but not see through. It also has an opening at the top, not completely isolating the bathroom from the living space. This small opening is to allow for moisture to clear more easily.
I am including this lengthy description as two guests felt that it would be better to know. Most guests (95%) have no issues with the style of bathroom.

Guest access
Guests have full use of cottage and porch. The front house is occupied by us and other Airbnb guests in the summer. Contact with front house is usually in cases of mutual interest.

Other things to note
There will be an $60 cleaning fee. There is plenty of parking in front of our home.
We are also family friendly. Having 3 kids, we can offer items that can make your children more comfortable. Our kids are over 3 years in age so we don't have infant stuff.

We also will charge $25 in case the key is not returned (not that the key costs a lot but the process of getting a new key requires that I pay the cleaner for her time).
