The Space

Advent Acres is unique because it is a rural wonderland so close to the city. This guest room has a queen-size futon bed, a reading nook, and its own exterior entrance for your convenience. A single mattress can be placed on the floor for a family of three. In the summer a larger family could camp on the property.
Guests wishing to reserve both of our guest rooms (see also "Vintage Farmhouse: Single Room") would receive a discounted rate of $95 per night for the two rooms for up to 3 people (regular rate for both rooms is $117): $15 additional for a 4th person.

Guest Access

Guests will have access to the main floor of the farm house. This includes the kitchen, family room, grand living room, and the shared bath. The hosts primarily use the upstairs bathroom when there are guests. The grounds provide a wonderful place for peaceful walking. The wrap-around front porch offers a spot for leisurely breakfasts and reading the newspaper.

Interaction with Guests

Brad & Val both work outside the home: Brad's schedule varies from week to week, and Val has a more typical Monday to Friday away-from-home work rhythm. We typically will both be present in the evening during your stay. We enjoy visiting with our guests when they are so inclined, but will certainly take our cue from you in terms of the amount of interaction or privacy you prefer.

The Neighborhood

Our neighborhood is filled with trees. Lake Spanaway is a short distance away and has water craft for rental. Several of our neighbors have horses, and one neighbor has two donkeys that keep us company during the day. And then there's the magnificent peacock! We are a 30-minute walk from Pacific Lutheran University (about 1.5 miles away) and a 10-15 minute drive to Joint Base Lewis/McChord (JBLM). The nearest restaurants/shopping areas are about a mile away.

Getting Around

Airport transportation is very convenient by Express Bus. We make every effort possible to provide ground transportation from the bus stop in Tacoma to our home . It is walkable, though nearly 3 miles. Buses and trains to Seattle or heading South to Portland are very convenient. Extending further, the trains just mentioned go to Vancouver, Canada or San Francisco, CA. The nearest bus stop for our local public transit (Pierce Transit) is about a mile away: because of that, our home typically works best for those with their own transportation.

Other Things to Note

We do not have cable or satellite TV access: we do have a TV in the common area for streaming (we have ChromeCast) and a DVD player for your use.
We are grateful that you are reading about us and our home. Advent Acres is a great story of abundant blessing to us and we would be delighted to share it with you. We have come to embrace our role as AirBnB hosts, and always look forward to our next encounter with new guests!

House Rules

We do not drink alcohol or use the now legal drug marijuana. It is our preference that you do not either. Yet we do appreciate the great joy of a cold beer after a long day of hiking at Mount Rainier.
No smoking anywhere on the property. We ask for quiet between 10 pm and 8 am.
We do have an indoor cat. Therefore we can speak about your pets on a case by case basis.

The double guest room's reading nook. The southern exposure gives it lots of great light, and a ceiling fan keeps it cool in the summer. Note the private entrance which leads onto the wrap-around porch.
