"The Cottage" is behind our home, and is attached to our garage. A shared yard/patio separates your private cottage from our residence; it is totally separate from the house. I live on the property full time with my husband Randy, our three school-age kids, and our little chihuahua, Lucky. ***Note that although our property is generally quiet, we do frequently dine/relax in the back yard during the warm-weather months.*** You are always welcome to join in the fun!
Here are some details about The Cottage:
Hotel-style guest room w/ private entrance
Queen sized bed w/ wood frame and hypoallergenic mattress cover
Cotton bed linens
Small fold-down table w/ 2 chairs
French door + windows on two sides of the cottage for lots of light
Curtained armoire, plenty of room for clothes
Guest-controlled Heater + Window A/C
Flat-screen TV w/ cable and remote
4-cup coffee maker
Complimentary coffee & tea (+ cream/sugar)
Travel-sized iron and ironing board

***PLEASE NOTE: the Cottage does NOT have a kitchen. Also, our small house is already very full with our large family. As such, there are no cooking or laundry facilities available for guest use in the main house. We appreciate your understanding.***
Private bathroom w/ tile floor, shower, pedestal sink and hair dryer
Sliding door separates the bathroom from the main room
100% cotton towels

*** NOTE: it has recently come to our attention that the heater that supplies hot water to our guest cottage does not allow for lengthy showers. This has not been an issue for the vast majority of our guests over the last two years, but I want potential guests to be aware of this issue in case you like longer showers. ***
