It has a high headboard with shelves, two night stands, and a chair. Guests enjoy a lovely sitting room near the bedroom where they can use a microwave, and have early morning coffee or tea. The living room and dining rooms downstairs are also available for TV watching, relaxing, or games. We provide beach towels for guests who want to lounge in the eight person hot tub in the backyard.

Interaction with guests
I live on the other side of the house. Guests have good privacy, but they may see me a few times a day. I serve guests breakfast and do not join them. This way they feel like a king and queen for the day! This also gives them some privacy and time to plan their days. I am here, however, to help guests with any issues.
Other things to note
We offer a DISCOUNTED GROUP RATE WHEN THE KING AND QUEEN ROOMS ARE RESERVED TOGETHER. THE RATE IS $252.00 PER NIGHT, plus tax. We also love serving guests healthy meals with consciousness about high cholesterol, lactose and glutten-free issues, and other health concerns. Garden produce, herbs, and flowers are used for the breakfast meal.
Smoking is not permitted in the house. Unfortunately we cannot accommodate pets. We do have some infant and preschool equipment and toys.

Mary is a Tacoma native. She had a great 44 year marriage to John, whom she met in college and married the week after graduation. John and Mary moved to Gig Harbor, a quaint little town just outside Tacoma, in 1992. Together they embarked on a very successful real estate sales career. Mary still likes to refer people to the best veteran agents serving the area. She has a wealth of information about the Puget Sound region, its people, local events and festivals, activities, and not to be missed tourist highlights. Today Mary enjoys semi-retirement, playing competitive tennis, skiing with family and sharing her lovely home and John's gardens with bed and breakfast guests.
