The space
In times like these PLEASE READ:

Your stay and safety are very important to rooms2stay. In light of the outbreak of the coronavirus, rooms2stay wants to assure you all the necessary precautionary measures are being taken to ensure a safe experience for our guests. To that end Cat, the hostess, is upping her game on cleaning protocols, disinfecting much as possible to keep rooms2stay “cootie” free as possible. This will also involve guest participation. The first request is to wash your hands, with soap, before you enter your room when you check-in and then again on return from your coming and goings. It's requested that reservations are done at the minimum 24 hours before stay to do the cleaning protocols. It's requested that reservations are done at the minimum 24 hours before stay to do the cleaning protocols.

Not only will common areas such as stair rails, doorknobs, light switches, surfaces, but laundry will also be sanitized (comforters) as well as the standard towel and sheet change. God willing there will be toilet paper. A new option is the availability of commercially prepackaged foods for breakfast choice. As much as she enjoys concocted special family-style breakfasts (which she will still do, one breakfast per guest, if so desired at no additional charge) and table settings she will do all with plastic gloves on. She is a food handling permit carrier! Cat’s preference is to usually not use bamboo or paper products when serving foodstuff. She is going "green" with future use of disposable and biodegradable plates, flatware, paper travel mugs, etc. use. She’s looking forward to the creative challenge of integrating all without losing the charm of a cozy quaint BnB and turning it into a sterilized hotel experience.

Once a month, minimum, there is deep cleaning. Your (and her) health in this endeavor deserves nothing less.

rooms2stay is an ideal overnight accommodation for business travelers, visiting college parents, grad students and professors. Baker University is one block away. This Airbnb listing is authorized and has been inspected by the city. Not handicap accessible nor suitable for children. Prefer guests 23 years of age and older. Ages 13 to 23 y.o. need to be accompanied with parent. The hostess lives on site (downstairs) and will personally greet you when you come. There is a shared bathroom for the guests on the same floor as their rooms, house robes are provided for each guest.

Guest access
A desk/writing surface (with office supplies and free wifi) and a dressing area is available for guest convenience in each room. The Firefly room does have a "step-up" into the room. Each room is keyed for security. Other amenities (full kitchen, outdoor sitting areas with grill use, and limited washer and dryer) can be made available by request. The books and piano are for use to read or play but please ask first.

Other things to note
5% of the funds received for each booking is donated by the host to a charitable cause introduced to me by one of my guests who personally started and runs at the grassroots level for a Zimbabwe Orphanage (blind orphans) & Education Fund . 

Hostess will provide information on events and seasonal activities during your stay. See Instagram account, rooms2stayapetitebnb, and Facebook for highlights and chronicles of life around here.

Please let the hostess know beforehand of any dietary preferences. Instructions will be provided for check out once you arrive. Eateries are limited in town and hours open vary, suggest you grab a bite to eat before arriving. If sick upon arrival please be sensitive and consider another overnight accommodation elsewhere that is not as much a community setting as a bed and breakfast. If unavoidable there may be a cleanup fee of an extra night's rate. Also, there is personal damage insurance but it doesn’t preclude a guest from financial responsibility for any damages claimed by the hostess if Airbnb determines a guest was at fault. No firearms or drugs allowed. This is a no-smoking environment (to include vaping).
