Walk or bike along the Path on River Road for some amazing scenery just 5 minutes away. Go to Lower Town (a 10-minute drive/Uber) and enjoy Mears Park surrounded by dining and pubs.

9. Can I smoke? Never inside the property. If you smoke, we ask that you step outside away from the door and properly dispose of butts.

This charge will need to be added to your billing and you must notify us immediately in your initial response that you have a dog, including what kind and how much it weighs. We will then apply the pet fee for you to accept payment on and it will be added to your overall Airbnb total. Our pet policy is that we will allow 1 dog under 45 pounds. However, use of the back yard is reserved for our long-term tenant only. If you bring a dog, you must walk them out to the boulevard to do its business. We also expect that your dog’s “business” is picked up and properly disposed of in the outside can behind the garage. Dogs are not to be allowed in the backyard or on the furniture, beds or use blankets or pillows. We ask that you bring a lint roller and lint roll all furnishings etc. and sweep the floors for any dog hair upon your day of departure. Our cleaner will always do a very thorough cleaning after each guest who has a pet but we ask that all guests with pets pitch in on this prior to their leave.
11. Can you tell me more about the parking? Parking is easy. We own the Real Estate Office across the street. We allow our guests to park on the parking pad in front of the garage off the street for no charge.
12. How many guests can stay here? While this is a 1 bedroom home with 1 queen size mattress. You may have 1-3 more guests if they don't mind sleeping on the couch or quality queen size air mattress that would need to be set up in the living room space. For the record, the couch is wide and very comfortable. There is a small extra charge for more than 2 guests. See the fee section for this information. If you have a additional guests and they would rather sleep on an air mattress instead of the couch please let us know and we will provide a quality air mattress that will be set up in the living room.

******This is a fully private space. As mentioned above there is a lower/main level apartment downstairs with its own entrance. Guests will have no, or very little, interaction with our renter unless you see each other come or go when outside.
