Other things to note
We live in this lovely house with our sweet dog Carthage and a cute cat Winston, who are always excited to meet new people . He is an outdoors cat, mostly sleeps in the living room and doesn't go to guest bedrooms. We had a number of guests who were allergic to cats and they did fine.
-Please keep the gates LOCKED ALL THE TIME and keep the noise down after 11 pm.
-Please put only TOILET PAPER IN THE TOILET and only THE MINIMUM! The house pipes are old and delicate!!
- Ladies, please do not wipe off your make up with towels. It permanently stains them. If you forgot to bring your make up remover, ask us. If the towels are stained it will be deducted from your security deposit.
