Description

The Space

Bright, garden-facing room in beautiful home. Single bed for 1 person only.

Relax to the sound of water falling into the pond beside our bonsai garden, come watch the feeding of the goldfish in the morning.

Please note check in time is between 3 pm and 9 pm. Being our home, we do not open the door after midnight.

The picture is slightly different from our current layout - the bed is no longer under the window, it is now against the wall on the right, but the furniture is the same.

Parking is VERY TIGHT during business hours.

Our lodging is ideal for a visitor who has no car and enjoys walking or biking.
