House has internet, piano, family room with satellite TV; must like cats, as we have a very social one! No smoking indoors. No small children! Note that this is a shared bath situation. Summer guests, please note that I turn on the central air if it's over 75 and humid. I'm not one to keep my house cold!
I am a great host; I love people! I sometimes bake some special goodies such as banana bread or scones for breakfast, when I'm not working on a deadline for my theatre or design work. Coffee maker available, use of the refrigerator and microwave. The house is in a very quiet neighborhood, with ample street parking. You will find your stay here very cozy. I prefer that you have been registered with Airbnb six months, with a photo, or have references.
NOTE: Every room in the house is equipped with a smoke detector. The guest room has a first aid kit.
Main living room; shared bathroom; limited kitchen use.

Staying with Judy was a pleasure. Cozy and private and so close to the airport.
The listing description and reviews are right on for Flo's Room.
Judy is a very warm and inviting host. (as well are her cats and son)
The bedroom, bathroom and whole house were immaculate. I was very glad that she introduced a discussion concerning bathroom use in the morning so that there would be no awkwardness.
This was my first time staying in an airbnb. I had a bit of a travel glitch the night before I was to arrive and needed to be able to communicate with Judy about it. She responded in a timely, friendly manner.
I had no trouble with parking by the house. The house is very close to main roads that can take you anywhere in the Twin City area.
Judy was a very gracious host. I got some cat hair on my suit pants so she very thoughtfully picked up a lint brush while she was out shopping, along with some muffins for breakfast since I was leaving very early the next morning. I didn't find a three-prong power outlet for my laptop cord in the bedroom, so I sat in the family room to work and it was very pleasant. Thank you!
Bed was very comfy and my room very quiet!!! Judy's cat is seriously the friedliest cat I've evern met (and I've had cats my entire life!!), but Judy did a really good job of keeping him out the way unless I reached out to him. Bathrooom was very clean!! it is a shared bathroom, but Judy was more than courteous about ensuring I was able to use it on my schedule!
Home was very easy to find! only regret is I was there on the last day before snow and wasn't able to enjoy her gardens! Really fantastic artwork all over!!
Judy was such an awesome host. Her cat Diego, kept me comoany too. The room was clean and so was the bathroom. I slept so good and the bed was quite comfortable. Lots of lighting in the bathroom. I had dinner at a restaurant that was about a 2 minute drive from the house. The neighborhood was nice and also very quiet.
Judy was so sweet and I got to know so much about her interesting life.
The next morning muffins and scones were available.
The listing was even better than described, in a vibrant and walkable neighborhood, easily accessed on public transit. "Flo's Room" and the house are charming and warmly designed. I enjoyed meeting her son and her well-mannered cats. We found a lot to talk about, and I appreciated the coffee-whenever-you-want-it policy, as well as the drop-offs to both the airport and a sports bar for a baseball game I wanted to catch. Great place to stay, and a warm and helpful host!
I'm a theatrical director/fashion designer; I'm 68 years old and extremely active. I work out 3x weekly and swim. I was widowed 10 years ago and have two grown children; my son graduated college and lives at home; he is an AmeriCorps worker. I've traveled to Mexico, Europe, and most of the USA. I'm liberal in my views and love to have guests. I throw many parties! AND, if any women are interested in one-of-a-kind fashions, I have lots for you to peruse! I speak a little bit of Spanish, but am not fully conversational.
