Interaction with guests
I have lived in the Northwest all my life and am happy to share ideas about places to go to fulfill any of your interest. I have traveled extensively, and I am a people person, meeting very few that I didn't like. I respect my guest's needs for privacy and having there own space but am standing by for chats or to answer questions for anything needed.
The Camus Prairie sitting between the small towns of Yelm and Rainier, is also 35 minutes to either Olympia or Tacoma. Also close to Seatac Airport approximately an hour away and about 1 1/2 hours to Seattle. All three of these cities have a myriad of cultural events, galleries,shopping of all kinds and dozens of seasonal events. Mt. Rainier, as well as Mt. St. Helens are near by as are, the coastal towns along the Pacific Ocean. The Salish Sea (Puget Sound) and the Hoh Rain Forest hold endless wonder as well. Right in our neighborhood is Northwest Trek, Wolf Haven and the Roy Rodeo.
Sea Tac airport is an hour away. Amtrack train line is 20 minutes away. Car rentals are readily available.
I'm not a big "rule" person but I do expect my guests to clean up after themselves, put there dishes in the dish washer etc. Also let me know if you plan on having additional friends or family in. No non-perscription drugs or smoking please. I have wood floors throughout so it would be good to remove your shoes at the door and wipe up any water or liquid spills. Since I have a septic tank, it would be helpful to not put more toilet paper in the toilet then necessary. There is a wooden box for "non-messy paper.' Finally this is the first drought year we have had in the Northwest so shorter showers and water conservation is a most appreciated courtesy. I will conclude with perhaps the most important rule...if there is anything I can do to make your stay here more comfortable, please feel free to ask.
I retired from the film business sixteen years ago and bought my dream home, a farm on the Camus Prairie near Yelm, Washington. Here I have a organic garden, seasonal creek outdoor sauna and many amenities. Most people, once here mention the magic and beauty of this little farm. Perhaps it's the indoor/outdoor aviary full of finches the huge indoor greenhouse or the fact that it is so important to me that each guest feels at home.
