Shannon's home was lovely. As a woman travelling alone, I was a little hesitant to head to the middle of the woods. However, I could not have felt more safe or more welcome. There's something special about the level of comfort that Shannon has created in this women only space. …

Shannon’s place is a little slice of paradise—the private deck with its hot tub was so lovely and relaxing. I was there by myself and felt completely safe, comfortable, and at ease—the fact that the property is women-only definitely added to this. This was the perfect place for a…

This is a wonderful quiet getaway where you can really unplug, rest under the stars in a hot tub, eat and read in the sun on a porch with gentle windchimes; explore the nearby forest. Shannon is welcoming and warm, makes sure you have everything you need for a peaceful stay, and …

Love this place. Shannon is wonderful. We stayed in her studio last summer and I was nervous about a winter visit – but even in January the studio is warm and cozy, the outdoor shower is plenty hot, and the jacuzzi is perfect. During both visits, we appreciated the option to use …

Shannon was a lovely and informative host. This is a one-room rental with access to a shared deck. The room is located in an out-building that is home to the host. The indoor shower is shared and accessed via a path to and through the carport. Although I did not see Shannon, o…

Hi Deborah. My goal for my guests is to have a comfortable, relaxing stay. This listing is for a private room (one bedroom, one bathroom guest suite with a private hot tub, and an outdoor shower on a private deck). As I also described, there is a microwave and a kitchen hutch outfitted with appliances and supplies for preparing a light breakfast or lunch, or heating up take-out. There is one extra-large pedestal sink equipped with larger drain pipes appropriate for this use, and a compost container and garbage can beneath it for food scraps. I keep the sink and pipes clean and am sorry you found drainage slow. This is the first I’ve heard of any issue. The deck is private. It is solely for guests when they are here so they have complete privacy. I’m sorry you didn’t understand that when I welcomed you and showed you around and when you read my listing. All of my reviews until this one have been stellar. I’m sorry your stay was not all you’d hoped it would be and I wish you all the best ~ Be well, Shannon
