Other Things to Note

Picture is of entire house. The Guest Cottage is on the left side of the picture. The Home Owners Association rules state that cars must be in the garage overnight. If you are uncomfortable pulling in and out of a garage you should probably look elsewhere. We can make exceptions for a short stay of a few nights. I can also get an exception approval from the HOA for a trailer for a short stay.
Please note the bathroom has a step in clawfoot bathtub with a shower. No walk in shower is available.

NOTE on PRICING: The prices listed for daily, weekly and monthly rentals are the average pricing. Summer rentals (off season) will show the discounted pricing when the final tally is made. At that time you can accept or cancel. Premium pricing will apply to Winter rentals (high season)..

Personal hygiene items: While I do provide hand liquid soap (and dish soap) for kitchen and bathroom, I DO NOT provide shampoo, conditioner, bath soap, toothpaste or sunscreen. Most guests have their own preferences and do not find this to be a game changer. There is a 4 cup coffee maker. I DO provide coffee filters I DO NOT provide coffee.

There is an iron and board available for use on request.
