The entire 3rd floor of this 1890's brick house is available for guests. The space was renovated about 16 years ago and a bathroom was added between the two bedrooms. Although there are two bedrooms available, the entire space will be rented to only one party at a time to ensure privacy. The queen sized bed in one room and double bed in the other gives space for 4 adults. We can also provide a single mattress on the floor for a child or for smaller children, there is a Pack 'N Play available. Continental style breakfast available each morning with flexible time schedule.
PLEASE NOTE: additional charge applies if both rooms requested for single occupancy each.
Guests will have access to the first floor living room during evening hours. Also there are two rocking chairs on the front porch and lounge chairs on the back deck which can be used during warm weather. Free wi-fi is available at all levels in the house and on front porch and back deck. Free on-street parking is usually available near our house.
Both of us are retired with fairly flexible schedules. We are involved in various volunteer activities but we will enjoy interacting with our guests as time permits. However, we also value our own privacy and we will respect that of our guests as well.
