Interaction with Guests
We interact as little as desired. Usually we will join for breakfast for a short time and then allow our guests to have their own time. If guest do not want our presence, we gracefully move on to other activities. We've enjoyed getting to know about our guests adventures, travels, and feedback about our little town.
Additional guests must register with host before arrival just so we know who's going to be with us:) Check in / out are flexible so please just let us know your schedule and needs. We try very hard to accommodate.
Raeleen was very friendly and inviting. I admired her earthy lifestyle and passion for community. Her house is situated in a quiet residential neighborhood, and it is just a short drive to the sights in Mystic. We stayed over for a friend's wedding nearby, and we preferred it over normal hotel lodging. Raeleen fed us a wonderful organic breakfast with many in house ingredients. The bed/bedroom was also very comfortable. We would definitely stay here again if we venture back in the area!
Short night stay in this small alive and kicking house. The big tomcat is for something there, he asks only to play.
The hosts are nice, available.
We spent a good moment with them, to talk about our lives, in front of a good breakfast of yoghurt, muesli and fresh fruit.
Thank you for your welcome!
Wir hatten eine wirklich sehr schöne und angenehme Zeit in Mystic. Raeleen war zwar leider nicht anwesend (sie arbeitet immer unter der Woche auswärts!), aber Mark und der Kater Ruben waren sehr gute Gastgeber! Eins vorweg: wer stark verspielte und im Vergleich große Katzen nicht mag, für den ist die Wohnung leider nichts (und natürlich für Allergiker). Ansonsten gibt es nichts zu meckern! Mark ist sehr gesprächig, sehr gebildet und verbreitet eine sehr angenehme Atmosphäre. Er gibt gute Tipps über die Gegend und zeichnet bei Bedarf schöne Karten/Routen der Stadt ;)
Die Wohnung ist auf jeden Fall weiterzuempfehlen. Die hochgeladenen Bilder lassen die Wohnung schlechter aussehen, als sie tatsächlich ist.
Euch allen viel Spaß mit Mark und Raeleen

Comfortable, cosy room in a charming house in a lovely Mystic suburb. It was such a quick, one night, visit that we didn't see much of Mark and missed Raeleen entirely! But we were grateful for their hospitality and breakfast goodies and we did get to spend some time with Mr Rueben, the giant Moggy! Couldn't ask for more.
I am not somebody who writes reviews as a norm. I found everything cozy, cute, and informative as said in the description as well as with the pictures. Mark, Raeleen, and their cat were excellent hosts. Due to the hours of the seminar I was attending and other business concerns I did not get to visit as much as I would have liked. I do hope to stay again at Mark's and Raeleen's for the next seminar.
I had a great two-night stay in Mark & Raeleen's home! Raeleen was out of town, but was very helpful and quick to respond to my inquiries. Mark and kitty cat (a very cute, very fluffy, playful and snuggly kitty) were very hospitable and made my stay cozy! Mark was very friendly and helpful in offering tips about places to eat, etc. He was very generous in driving me to see the town area, pointing out restaurants and special points of interest. The room was comfortable and clean. Mark offered many breakfast options, which was lovely. Overall a great experience in Mystic!
