This is an historic 1826 house just four blocks from the train station and near our downtown art gallery, antique stores and restaurants! Set back from the street, it features amazing architectural details, a large Southern-style porch and much more.
The number One Rule is to Enjoy Yourself here!
Get here when it suits you, but don't expect your room to be ready before 4 p.m. lest someone has rented it the night before. There may be times when I’m already asleep or I’m away and I will give you the code to get a key for access on the backdoor system.
Quiet time in the house is from 11 p.m. to 7 a.m. unless other arrangements have been made. (No music, loud talking, etc.).
There is no smoking except for outside on the porch, on the patio or in the gazebo (which is taken down in the winter).
No pets. Sorry.
Kids are lovely (I had some myself!) and welcome! Babies need to have a portable crib or playpen and bedding brought for them (by you!) Newborns to 2 year olds are free--0ver the age of 2, regular rates apply, as they will be occupying a bed. (Bedrooms are adjoining, through the hallway.) I have gates on the stairs and the room outlets have safety plugs in them. (Note: Rubberized mattress pads will be used if children are using the beds.)
Maximum 4 people at a time, (2 in each room), excepting babies under the age of 2.
Originally from Chicago, I am an artist (painter, printmaker, sculptor) and college art professor in New York City. I enjoy traveling and have been to many countries around the world. (I have actually lived in Ethiopia, Ireland, Canada and the U.S.) I am a classical music and opera fan and enjoy entertaining, films, good conversation, museums, galleries, teaching and learning.
