Response from Lynn:

Okay, I was one of the guests present at the time Susen was staying that night. When she arrived, I was in the dining room on my laptop finishing my essay. At about 7:50 PM, she said she needed to get to sleep in an hour while asking me and the other guests if we were going to be here all night. I said, well, I'm going to be typing but we can move to the other room. I also offered for her to have the living room couch I was originally going to stay on, so it could feel roomier, as opposed to the couch connected to the dining room. She declined, which was fine. So, for the next hour she socialized with us all in the living room before she went to sleep. (I was on my laptop mostly, making occasional eye contact while she was describing her life and profession). Susen went to sleep while the rest of us made quiet conversation until we all went to sleep a couple hours later. In the middle of the night, Susen's phone alarm went off while she was in the shower--waking me and the other guest up in the living room. I calmly got up and tapped her phone to turn off the alarm.The other guest thanked me as I went back to bed. After Susen was done with her shower, she went back and forth in between bathrooms. The one closest to the couch she slept on had a complete sink and toilet, so we didn't necessarily see the point of her using the bathroom next to the living room (the only difference between the two bathrooms is a shower). The other guest staying in the living room got up to tell Susen that she could use the bathroom in the dining room--implying that she no longer needed to use the bathroom nearest to where we were sleeping because she already took her shower. I heard nothing that sounded like it could have been cracked shins, tripping falling and running into the door face first. It was not both guests that confronted her, just the other guest. Somehow, in the midst of all this she became offended because of her broken expectations of space use and her sleeping arrangements.
So this is Lynn and my comments: I noticed in the message thread preceding Susen's stay that I offered for her to call 24/7 if she needed anything at all. I did not hear from her when this incident arose. In the message thread preceding her stay I addressed her concern for getting up at early hours and not wishing to disturb anyone. I did this by reminding her that she could use the shower in the bathroom upstairs where my room is. This is written in the descriptions of all my listings, but I wanted to emphasize it in case she hadn't noticed. Also the door between the kitchen and the dining room does have a sign that says "keep closed in the morning". This is for quiet or to block light. If one is navigating common areas in the house at dark hours when others are sleeping, it seems logical to use a personal light such as a phone, and certainly it is considerate to turn off the alarm on such phone when you arise before the alarm goes off and you know it is still going to deploy. It was loud enough to wake up both people two rooms away and one of them had to go that distance to turn it off while she was showering. So far as her departure walking the perimeter of the house at night, that might not have been necessary if she had used the upstairs bathroom as had been offered and just walked through the living room twice to more directly access her car. Once again, navigation in the dark can be aided by utilizing outdoor lights or a personal light such as a phone one. Incidentally when she asked to use the space in the driveway to park her car to be extra close to the house, I said fine. I indicated in the message thread that the other guest who had the problem with her alarm clock was gone the next day. She had cancelled early, probably because of this. So far as her suggestions for improving the experience, it was made very clear to all the guests that she had different working hours. I would have said it myself but I didn't need to, as she had let all the guests know that. The sunroom adjacent to the dining room is 9 X 14 -1/2 feet and has two waist length walls separating it from the dining room. I want to emphasize that I as well as the other guests were absolutely not upset about her needing the lights out for her to sleep-- on the contrary, every effort was made to accommodate her!
