The space
Welcome to Suite Chez Jennie! :) It's my house, and i love to share it with travelers! 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. Note: the space is private, but not hermetically sealed away from the rest of the house. When you come in the back entrance, there are steps up to my kitchen and steps down to the suite. Look up and you may spy a cat or two!. The sliding door to the suite is for privacy , to keep the cats out, and noise blocking, but it is a slider, so some "daylight" comes through.

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 often 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!)
