Interaction with Guests

We are pretty social people, and enjoy getting to know guests and having conversations as our schedules permit. We find mornings work best for this, but we're always available to offer suggestions for people based on personal interests. We also appreciate the fact that the room provides a good deal of privacy thanks to its separate entrance, and appreciate the need of some people for space and solitude.

The Neighborhood

Quiet, green, but convenient to everything.
