Interaction with Guests
We enjoy meeting our guests and chatting with them. We also respect guests privacy, and allow you to direct us as to how much interaction you want with us.
If you decide to book with us or make an inquiry, please tell us something about yourself , and who is coming with you, and your plans for your time in the area. Knowing something about each other helps both of us to feel comfortable, and helps us to make your visit more enjoyable.
We encourage guests to inquire and ask questions. However, we do get many inquires and some people put out multiple inquires when looking for a place to stay, so it just becomes impossible to hold our room from an inquiry. For this reason we accept reservation requests on a first come first served basis.
We are in a quiet neighborhood with large parcels. There is open forest practically out the front door for snow shoeing, cross country skiing, hiking, running and biking. We are always glad to share our knowledge of the area to help you get the most out of your visit.
