About this listing

Guests are welcome to stay and relax in the little house we originally built for my mother who now resides in heaven. The house overlooks a small pond, sometimes full if we get the rain, but always visited by deer and dragonflies!

Description

The Space

Quiet and peaceful other than the crowing roosters and clucking hens! Approximately 750 sq feet of house supplied with everything you should need for your stay! We do not do any maid services such as cleaning during your stay but do supply soap and softener sheets for clothes and linens washing. There is a change of sheets in the closets. Many of the basic condiments such as olive oil, baking powder, spices, etc. and pots, pans, dishes, and utensils for your cooking are in the cabinets so you should only have to buy the main stuff! Look in the cabinets before you go shopping and if we need to refill anything such as paper towels, toilet paper, etc. - let us know!


Guests are welcome to use the pool, the cedar Pergola area, and the propane BBQ grill. If we do have a big cookout party (only occasionally) we will let you know and invite you!

We have traveled a lot throughout the world and always enjoy staying in Zimmer Frei kind of places! We will like to get to know you a bit but will certainly respect your privacy! The house is set far back from the main house and you come and go as you please without at all passing through the main house!

The neighborhood is nice and quiet and safe - good for walking and we can tell you how to get to the trails if you want to walk down to and all around the nearby Stillhouse Hollow Lake!

There is not easy public transportation close by! A vehicle is necessary to get anywhere!

We collect 13% in lodging taxes (included as part of the rate) which we pay quarterly through HotSpot Tax Services. We realize taxes and insurance are necessary costs for any business. However, in June 2015 we were informed by our insurance agency (USAA) they were dropping our homeowners insurance because we are doing short term rentals. Replacement insurance through another agency is costing $650.00 more per year as an additional cost and which we must necessarily, pass on to our guests as increased rates. If we were renting space in our home long term, as people have done for years to, for example, college students and others, we could probably have kept the policy. To help prevent things such as this and more, do what you can to support the sharing economy in your area, and squash any local ordinances and laws stopping free enterprise, and support the AirBnB community.

House Rules

Please park your car up next to the facing garage for unloading and loading - however, during the day you will want to park your cars far back along the long driveway if you do not want the two peacocks getting on your car and likely scratching the paint or pooping on the car. They are a pain, we know, but so beautiful!!
Out of consideration for other guests - no smoking inside the house.
Also, please make sure all the gates remain closed so the doggies do not escape - they will come begging - please do not feed them - no matter what they say, they do get enough to eat!
