Many extra touches. Downstairs: daily breakfast in our eat-in kitchen, spacious living room w/DISH. Stroll our safe, well-appointed neighborhood, lounge on our patios, swim. Welcome info on area history, art, music, nature, etc! Passing thru, business or affordable family fun; we're the best!

The space
Star Bright is white & sparkling. Bedroom and sitting area, work desk with lamp and multi-charging ports, plus an alcove where I do art when there are no guests (join me for a lesson?). The alcove that can be curtained off if you have a child to give each of you privacy. You can enjoy the unobstructed view from the alcove window all the way to Oklahoma.

Guest access
You can use any part of the 3500+ square feet except other guest rooms other than the one you reserved, our personal bedroom area downstairs and my office. Downstairs you may use the kitchen appliances, game table, living room entertainment, piano, dining table in the kitchen, front and back patios, swimming pool, hammock, trampoline. Upstairs you may use the full bath, rec room & your chosen guest room.

Other things to note
12 carpeted steps up to all guest rooms with a landing halfway up, and handrails.
There are two family dogs. They are not allowed in guest bedrooms but are in common areas, and they are loud upon arrival. Once they know you belong, they are great and will wag their tails as be happy if you choose to pet them.
We never know how many, if any, of the other guest rooms will be booked during your stay. Sometimes you will be alone. Sometimes there are other guests.
