This suite is complete with a standard queen bed, a single bed, private bath, sitting area with large sofa, love seat, chair (All seats are recliners).There is also a small coffee maker, (do not brew flavored coffee) mini fridge, a toaster oven, a microwave, a dehumidifer, and a Dyson air cleaner for guest use. Brochures are displayed for guest use. Sleeps three comfortably. There is an outside entrance for easy guest access using a walkway on the right side of the house.

The space
This home is located in the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains of the southwestern part of Virginia. It is 80 miles southwest of Roanoke and 80 miles north of Winston Salem. The location is about three miles from exit 19 of Interstate 77. Twin County airport is three miles away. There is a multitude of activities in which to participate in the area. Hiking, biking, canoeing, horseback riding, etc.

I have three available bedrooms with private baths. Two of the bedrooms have queen beds and the basement room has a single twin sized bed for one person only. You should be able to see all three of my offerings on a normal browser on your computer. I have been told by Airbnb that they all might not show up on an app. The names of all three listings are:
See Shirley's Homestead, West Bedroom/ Prvt Bath, the other two sites are named: Shirley's Homestead Walk-Out Basement Bed/Bath
and Shirley's Homestead, East Bedroom/ Private Bath
so you can search for any of those.

Guest access
The balcony is available for TV watching and there is a meeting room available as well as a common area if needed.

Other things to note
Guests should know that there is very poor coverage for AT&T and T-Mobile cell phones in my area. Do not depend on navigation on your phones to find my home.

First and foremost, I am a Christian who believes the truth of the Bible and tries to apply it to each and every moment of my life here on earth. I consider the Bible a road map for my life. This doesn't mean that I am a perfect individual, but that I am forgiven! I have been totally blessed by hosting Airbnb guests from around the world and I love the people and this new adventure in my life. My motto is Scripture: I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me; Philippians 4:13 I am a retired business/computer programming teacher. I like to read, travel, use the computer, eat out, do things with friends, and do jigsaw and crossword puzzles. I also enjoy community activities and I help publish the CHRONICLES periodical for the local historical society. I am an active Ruritan Club member and a member of the Woodlawn United Methodist Church. I am also in the Carroll County Retired Teachers Association. I was a member of the local chapter of the Experimental Aircraft Association that my husband co-founded here at Twin County Airport. The main focus of the organization is to expose children to aviation and give free airplane rides to children ages 8 - 17. Regrettably, this organization has disbanded after losing its most avid leader. I have three listings on this site which are a Walkout basement, East Bedroom and West Bedroom. I have learned from previous guests that they do not see all three listings when making reservations, thus I am stating that information here. so you can search for all of them. Food is allowed in the basement room, but not allowed in the other two bedrooms. All of them have private bathrooms. There is TV available for all who want to watch it. The basement room has a flat 55 inch TV with streaming capabilities . The West bedroom has a TV with the Apple system on it so shows can be accessed by that system with the guest sign-in on Netflix, etc. PBS shows are available and U-Tube. The East bedroom has access to a 65 inch smart TV in the balcony on which guests can sign into accounts and stream shows. Please park by the three car garage unless you have reserved the basement room. Parking on the right side of the house garage is reserved for the occupants of the basement room. Please read the house rules. No outdoor shoes in the house, please. And NO TOBACCO USE OF ANY KIND, please. I have found that not everyone reads all the information listed, thus, some of it is restated here. I do have multiple chemical sensitivity allergies to odors so I provide fragrance free toiletries for the guests. I also request that you carry suitcases and not roll around your luggage on my floors or carpets, please. Every effort is made for cleanliness. I require that you provide your picture ID to Airbnb to be displayed on your profile on the Airbnb site in order to have your reservation accepted. I also usually only approve those persons who have positive reviews from other hosts which are posted on the Airbnb site for that prospective guest. If you are new to Airbnb, please include an explanation of who you are and your purpose for traveling. Do not confuse my Woodlawn with another one which is in Northern Virginia. I am in the southwestern part of the state in the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains. My Woodlawn is in Carroll County, VA. I am only about 15 minutes from the Blue Ridge Parkway and 25 miles from Mt. Airy, NC, which is a great tourist town. Woodlawn is in between two towns, Hillsville and Galax which are approximately 7 miles away. The home is located about three miles from Interstate 77. Understand you are in the country when you stay at the Homestead. It is totally quiet and peaceful here. Other than the resident doggie, Cookie's barking sometimes!!!!
