Interaction with Guests
We are happy to assist/interact/chat as much or as little as you wish; we know that you are not here to see us, so we typically are quite unobtrusive. We live on the first floor with our cat and elderly dog, and one of us us usually home. Feel free to relax on the patio, have a little fire in the fire pit, or visit the chickens in the chicken yard.
The waterfront village of Warren, Rhode Island is an absolutely delightful place. The historic colonial village is very walkable, and the neighborhood of Colonial and Georgian era homes and building is dotted with many excellent restaurants, antiques shops, boutiques, and several artist's studios and artisan's workshops. The lengthy waterfront is packed with boats of all sorts and pays the perfect compliment to the historic colonial architecture. The village is less than a mile square and surrounded by water, salt marsh and farmland threaded by the bike path.
VERY convenient public transportation is available. The apartment is 1 block from the bus, which passes frequently and terminates in Providence or Newport. From Providence, there are very easy and convenient connections to Amtrak, MBTA trains, regional buses and TF Green Airport.
Also 1 block from the apartment is access to the East Bay bike path which leads to Bristol or Providence.

About the Host, Sheila
I am a teacher, runner, and a gardener. I follow a live-and-let-live philosophy and am pretty laid-back. I love to learn new things, meet new people and try to make the world a better place to live! I've dedicated myself to the challenge of self-sustainability, avoiding the use of fossil fuels, and living outside the consumer/mass-production/consumption pipeline (difficult to reconcile against my love of travel!). I love my little town and home and am happy to share what I have.
