Interaction with Guests
We enjoy folks coming in the kitchen and chatting over coffee, and always provide and respect the privacy they wish.
It is very special to be in a quiet, peaceful place, surrounded by nature, viewing the milky way, without any seeing any other lights- truly..
No- there is no public transportation here- Thank goodness. We are seemingly remote and peaceful, surrounded by nature, yet only 8 to 9 minutes from the State highway.
There is no smoking permitted anywhere on the property- inside or outside.
No check-ins later than 30 minutes before sunset, without permission. STRICT. This does not apply to guests who have stayed with us before and know the way. $25 fee for after sunset arrivals, payable upon arrival.
