Other things to note
We have our own flock of chickens, hence the name Brown Speckled Egg Farm. If you opt to breakfast here(add'l charge) you may choose farm fresh eggs, laid just this morning! We have extensive vegetable gardens and are a permaculture farm, everything is composted, reinvested in the soil to grow next season's crops. Our landscaping is intentionally drought loving.
No smoking in the house. Respect boundaries (i.e. please do not enter owner's bedroom, bathroom, office. Some minor use of kitchen is OK if discussed). Please treat this home respectfully as you enjoy relaxing here.
