Interaction with guests
THE LOFT is a completely private 750 sq.ft open floor concept apartment dwelling, located above a wood shop/garage on 5 acres. There is a fire pit located near the main house and we enjoy campfires year round as long as it is safe. There is also another fire pit located by the tipi which may be used by guests, provided there are no other guests staying in the tipi and it is safe to burn outdoors. We will interact as much or as little as guests prefer during their stay, so if you are feeling social and wish to share a meal next to the fire let us know!
The woodsy neighborhood is very safe & quiet. There are several homes along the dirt road leading to the property. PLEASE DRIVE SLOWLY to keep the dust down, watch out for neighborhood pets and be mindful of the potential for oncoming vehicles.
There is no convenient public transportation within walking distance--You will need a car!
