About this listing
This is a modest space; a front living room/office, former wellness space that serves as your large bedroom with its own set of lovely french doors separating it from the rest of the apartment, and your own entrance via the front porch/front door.
Common front room of a main street apartment in Deep River, CT that can be closed off for privacy. Shared bath and kitchen. I live in the back. The location is right in the center of Deep River village. The Connecticut River is a pleasant 15 minute walk from here.
If you stay more than one night, you can have a key to come and go. The kitchen is available to use and I would be happy to show you around a little! Deep River has a couple of restaurants, shops, grocery store, hardware store and laundromat a short walk away! A dog and cat live here as well.
The front room faces Elm Street, which can be a bit busy in the morning. In the summer, more so than the winter, the sounds of traffic begin early. Although it is somewhat intermittent, it can be loud at times as the town hall is across the street and its three story, brick facade reflects and amplifies the sound.
The bath is small, and the kitchen very modest. In fact the entire place is quite modest, so if you are used to luxury, this may not be the listing for you. The bed is a full size futon that can sleep two. I can also set up a camp cot for a third person! Wifi is available.
Guest have access to the front room, porch, galley kitchen and bathroom.
Interaction with Guests
I am around a lot and happy to try to be helpful with knowledge of the area! Dolly the dog and Pietra the cat live here. They will interact with you. Both are super friendly, but if you aren't comfortable with either, please consider a different listing.
Deep River is a nice, little village with all the needed services - grocery, laundry, hardware store, restaurants and banking services.
Everything is accessible by walking. There is also a small, regional bus service called 9-Town Transit that can be accessed across the street.
Other Things to Note
You will have your own access through the front door. There are three apartments in this building. I am on the ground floor and there is a numeral '2' on the front door, which is accessed from the front porch.
New AirBnB Users: Please note that I seldom host folks that are brand-new to AirBnB if there are no reviews of past stays or hosting of other AirBnB members, nor any friend references. Also, if there is no information about you in your profile description, I will generally decline a request to be hosted.
Kitchen is available to cook your own food and should be left clean and tidy. There is a hot pot for making tea/coffee on the shelf. Bathroom is small - a towel left over the shower bar is used as a floor mat. Clean bath towels are on the shelf and may be used by guests. A basket is left in the front room for used towels. Linens are provided. There is a computer in the room that may be used. Also, the wifi password will be written on a piece of paper and left near the computer. Shades for privacy are on all the windows in addition to curtains and bamboo (translucent) shades.
No smoking in the house, of course and pets are probably not a good idea because Dolly, as friendly as she is, is also protective.
I'm a fifty years young male living in the center of the village of Deep River. Since seeking a more modest, contemplative lifestyle some years back, I enjoy finding outlets for artistic expression through music, writing and speaking about the relationship between human health and wellness, and the viability of the wider web of life. I enjoy time outside, including a variety of activities from bicycling to camping, activism and other forms of travel.
Staying here is fun and informal. If there is time, I'm happy to show you around including a pleasant walk to the river landing, or a ride in my old, bio-diesel-fueled Mercedes!
