Interaction with Guests
I am always eager to converse with my guests. It is up to the guest how much they want to interact.
I love that my neighborhood is very quiet. There are no children nearby or dogs out in the yard barking. It is very safe and peaceful and friendly! I live very close to the interstate so it is very easy to get most places in a short time but I'm far enough away that I don't get any noise from it.
There is ample parking on the street. The ride from the airport is very easy and direct and takes about 10 minutes.
My home is a non-smoking household. Check in after 3pm and check out by 11am although alternate times can be accommodated upon request. Please no guests during stay other than confirmed guests. I look forward to welcoming you!
Susan's house is lovely. It was a wonderful refuge for weary travelers. Susan is an excellent host and we really appreciated the breakfast that she provided
Susan is an incredible hostess and provided an amazing experience. The room and upper quarters were perfect for the stay. Everything was exactly as described and banjo truly is a wonderful part of the stay! Most of all Susan is an amazing and highly driven professional. Even in the midst of a busy schedule she always made time to visit and my talks with her were some of the highlights of my trip! I highly recommend!!!
Susan is a wonderful host- very communicative, friendly and attentive. Her place is lovely and very clean and the breakfast she offers is healthy and satisfying. Our son enjoyed playing with her dog and we enjoyed our conversations with Susan. Highly recommend this spot- we hope to be back!
Susan's home is very comfortable, clean, and beautiful. Her breakfast was always healthy and delicious. We felt like being pampered every morning. We loved her puppy Banjo, who was such a lovely dog that brought us lots of joy! Susan was accommodating and flexible and let me stayed past the check out time even though she had guest coming on the same day and needed to clean the house. Thank you Susan for such a wonderful experience you gave us!
We have stayed with Susan several times because she is a wonderful host! The room is very comfortable and her house is charming. The breakfast is delicious and Susan makes every effort to make sure her guests are comfortable... and Banjo is a bonus!
We were very Happy about our stay with our stay at Susan's Home.
Everything was wonderful. Her home is very comfortable, pleasant and immaculate.
We would deffinatly return for our future visits.
Thank You Barbara

We really enjoyed our stay with Susan. She
was very friendly and helpful. We had the entire upstairs which was nicely decorated. The queen bed was very comfortable. She
gave us access to hooking up our computer,although we didn't bring ours. If we're in the area again we would book with
Susan again. This was our first Airbnb experience!
