Accommodation

Sleeping arrangements
This is a one bedroom apartment, completely private. Spacious backyard, kids and dogs love it! In the backyard you can see some wild life, deer, fox, squirrels and rabbits. You don’t even have to use curtains unless you feel comfortable using them. A living room, a dining room, work area and a family room are combined in one spacious open area. It is most comfortable for 2 people, but can accommodate more. I have a sleeper sofa in the living room and an air mattrass, both queen size.
The apartment has hard wood floors. Note that floors are wet- washed after every guest.

Private bathroom, shampoo, conditioner, body wash, hair dryer, wash sponges (wash sponges are washed with towels after every guest). Access to the bathroom is through the bedroom.

Full private kitchen with stove, oven and a dishwasher. An adjacent breakfast area with bar table and bar stools. The kitchen has dishwasher, refrigerator, microwave, oven, coffee maker, crock pot, electric tea pot and a toaster. Breakfast food (oatmeal, coffee, tea and creamer, and some snacks) is available.

Parking is available on the premises for one compact car. To park on the parking spot at the bottom of the driveway drive down towards a carport and then into a parking spot rear first. Please keep your weeks on asphalt.

Safety
- Motion lights will turn on once you are in the driveway. They are controlled by switches inside the house. Please don’t turn them off if you want them work for you.

Parties
No parties, sorry.

TAXES
Hotel tax (7%), use and sales tax (6%) and Airbnb service fee are included in the price.

PETS
I like all pets, but only well trained and quiet pets are invited. It is understood that a pet may need some time to get used to a new space, so occasional bark is not a problem. Pet fee is a one time payment of $45, payable at check- in.
