Interaction with guests
We make warm introductions and then leave our guests in peace. We do our best to be home when our guests arrive, and always introduce ourselves when we return home if we were absent at their arrival.
Other things to note
We have an 8 year daughter, and two large dogs. You may occasionally hear our family through our shared walls (your bathroom and hallway). We are on a farm schedule: we go to bed early and get up early.
Absolutely no smokers or smoking of anything in apartment! Even smoking outside is a no-no.
No pets. We are keeping this rental pet-free to support allergy sufferers. We have pets on the property, but not in the apartment.
We will always be as conscious of keeping a quiet environment for our guests as possible and ask the same in return. We do, however, share a wall with the apartment so you may at times hear our 8 year old, our dogs, or our coffee grinder.
This listing can not accommodate more than 4 very cuddly people. Best for 1-3 friendly adults or maximum of 2 adults and 2 children. We will try to provide a shoe horn if you are a family of 4.
If stay is longer than 2 weeks, a $70 cleaning deposit will be added, in addition to the cleaning fee ($35) already included in the price. After cleaning of rental is completed, some or all of this deposit may be refunded, depending on time taken to clean. Most cleaning supplies are provided in apartment.
We (MacLaren and Randy) live on a small, urban farm where we raise chickens, turkeys, bees, milking goats, have a large garden, and a young fruit orchard. I manage the farm, homeschool our 8 yr old daughter, and make various farm goodies which I sell to cover costs of animals feed and farm supplies (chicken and turkey eggs, fresh goat milk, chevre, feta, dairy kefir, cajeta, goat milk caramels, water kefir, sauerkraut, kimchee, and lotion bars). My husband, Randy, is a park manager for the BLM (Bureau of Land Management) in the Rio Grande del Norte National Monument. The remainder of our family includes our loving rescue Pyrenees, Molly, our puppasaurus Aysu, and our kitties Hagrid and Ivy. We enjoy caring for our farm, eating locally, and engaging in many outdoor pursuits, including white water rafting and canoeing, camping, skiing, mountain biking, hiking, etc.
