Interaction with Guests
As much or little as they would like. Guests do a self-check-in.
We're located on a county road that allows us to feel like we're out in the country to some degree, yet Weaverville is 5 minutes away, and Asheville is 10 minutes away. We have a great neighborhood across the street where we can walk the dog and get some good hill exercise!
No. Just taxi service or Uber.
There is a queen pull-out sofa downstairs should you need an extra bed.
PARKING: we have driveways on both sides of our main house. Yours is the one to the RIGHT of the house, directly at the mailbox with a red reflective "147" indicator. Pull in directly in front of the garage/workshed and enter the tall wooden gate to your left. Sometimes the gate sticks, so just push hard. Please park as far left in the driveway as possible so our neighbors can get their two cars in.
Please wash all your dishes before departure and place all linens by the washer/dryer.
We'd appreciate the fireplace users placing cooled ashes/leftover charred wood in the provided ash pail on back deck, as the cleaner greatly appreciates this on quick turn-around days. We'll empty the pail in our compost bin.
As part of our quarterly pest control treatment, we leave mice bait boxes out in a few locations around the cabin. They are in out of the way places and supposedly pet and child "resistant", but a determined child or pet could possibly get into them. Please be aware if you're traveling with either, and if you let me know you're concerned, I can remove them before you arrive.
Wife, mother, entrepreneur, artist, outdoorsy music-loving adventurist! My husband, daughter, dog and I consider ourselves fun hosts- we'll interact as much as you want or leave you totally alone- your choice! Come stay with us!
