Interaction with Guests

We are a few minutes walk or drive to the Meriden Mall, Hubbard Park, walking/bike trail, grocery stores, restaurants, etc. We are about 25 min south of Hartford, 25 min north of New Haven (Yale), and 15 min west of Middletown (Wesleyan University).

Other Things to Note
**I require at least a day in advance notice for a stay. I can not accommodate you on the day that you request as I do not keep the room ready for guests and need time to clean the room/house and put on clean sheets. Thank You!
We don't have many rules. Really we only insist that you do not smoke in the house and do not bring pets. We also request quiet time between 11pm and 7am.
Sarah's house was beautiful, and the room was clean and had everything we needed for our night's stay, which was very comfortable. She's also very easygoing and friendly -- will absolutely recommend it to anyone who is looking to stay in the area!
Sarah was a wonderful host who was very helpful throughout the week!
Sarah was a great host! She was very attentive and accommodating. Thank you for having me, particularly as it was a last minute booking.
Sarah was a wonderful host to my boyfriend and I as we stayed the night while our apartment was getting ready to move into. She was warm and welcoming, her house was beautiful, and she gave great recommendations on places to eat in the area. She also provided breakfast in the morning!
