About this listing
A romantic get-a-way for two or a relaxing meditative place for one to retreat and renew oneself. We invite our guests to join in on Sherrie's yoga classes and visit Neil in his art studio gallery and see what he's working on!
Little House is a romantic place for two or a relaxing meditative place to retreat and renew oneself. Your hosts, Neil and Sherrie have restored the 100 year old homestead shack on their property to a standard that the pioneers could only dream of. For example: in addition to wide plank fir flooring there is heated slate in the bath and kitchen areas for exceptional comfort. Luxuriate in the claw foot bathtub. For privacy we have the powder room. For those who enjoy cooking, the functional and excellent kitchenette includes, a two element stove top, sink, fridge and freezer, as well as a toaster oven. We welcome you to use our gas bbq at the back of our house. Gas BBQ is connected to our house gas line so you will not run out of fuel here ;)
