Private, secluded, yet close to lots of stuff. Lots of color and fun decor. Short drive to Drake and DMU: One full bed, one single day bed, private bathroom, wifi, smart TV with Netflix, and Hulu, cozy electric fireplace, exclusive access to laundry room and screened porch, compact fridge, toaster, microwave, coffee maker and wine on request, quirky charm, your own entrance and "sitting porch." Following all cleaning protocols and mutual masking to help us both stay safe!

The space
Welcome to Suite Chez Jennie! :) Lots of color and fun decor. My house was built in 1927, on land owned by a single woman: rare back then! Only five owners since then. Beaverdale was considered a Des Moines suburb when the neighborhood was built up, and was notable for the 2 story and story and a half brick Tudor-inspired houses. Very quiet, but full of birdsong right now!

Guest access
Access to laundry room, screened porch.

Other things to note
Street parking on one side of the street only: you'll see where other cars are parked, so park the same way! :) I encourage masking from car to suite.

I'm a librarian. I could eat Italian food three times a day, and my resolution is to figure out this thing called relaxation. How does that work? My favorite quote: I am somehow less interested in the weight and convolutions of Einstein's brain than in the near certainty that people of equal talent have lived and died in cotton fields and sweatshops.

During your stay
You'll have my phone number for emergencies, and I'm usually right upstairs. I grew up in Des Moines, so if you have questions or want recommendations for dinner, ask me: I'm super opinionated! :) Maybe someday we can meet when we're done social distancing and you come back for fun! For now though, please don't be offended if I seem distant (like, at least six feet distant!)
