Other Things to Note
We live in this lovely house with our sweet dog Carthage, who is always excited to meet new people and our one year old cat Winston. 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 are allergic to cats and they did fine.
There is free street parking in the neighborhood.
-Please keep the gates LOCKED ALL THE TIME and keep the noise down after 11 pm.
