Description

The Space

The Garden Bedroom overlooks the mixed perennial borders on three sides of the yard. The bedroom feature a king-sized bed and high thread count, all cotton sheets. The windows are large and allow a lot of natural light in during the day.

Two bedrooms are available in the top floor apartment of this 1890s brick home. The apartment also contains a living room, a full, eat-in kitchen, a shared bathroom, and a laundry room. If both bedrooms are booked by the same party, the entire apartment is available for use. If separate parties book the two bedrooms, then the open areas of the apartment are shared. The bedrooms and bathroom lock for security.

Breakfast is when you want it from food provided in the kitchen. Juice, coffee, hot or dry cereal, yogurt, and fresh fruit are typical. Prior to your stay, you will be asked for preferences so you have what you like.

Mavhouse is located in the Lowertown Arts District. The house occupies a corner lot with deep mixed perennial, conifer, and shrub borders on two sides. Many unusual plants make the gardens interesting year round, from the riot of spring bulbs to the Christmas roses (Hellebores) beginning to bloom in December and lasting for months. Guided tours of the garden are available to those interested.

The house is what I call casually formal, as we are not formal people but live in a semi-formal house. It is filled with art, as we are in the arts district and have a family of artists. I love to cook, so for extended stays, expect at least one dinner invitation.

There is public transit available, and the neighborhood is so warm and inviting. We have regular artists in residence, whom we "mother" a bit, so count on lots of help finding things, getting places, or just getting the scope on what's up. Galleries and studios are on most of the nearby streets, waiting for you to stop in.

Paducah, Kentucky, United States · Member since November 2012

I am a retired university professor and administrator, first from the University of Southern Mississippi, then from Lambuth University in Jackson, Tennessee when that school closed in 2011. I have also worked as a research specialist and as a public school teacher. I would find retirement extremely trying were it not for being the caregiver and coach to my newest granddaughter, Wren, who is a source of constant delight.

I also am a fanatic gardener and write articles for gardening magazines. I love writing of all sorts and have published a few poems, several textbooks, and articles. To fill the void in my report-writing life, I volunteer with the Paducah Civic Beautification Board and the Paducah Arts Alliance, the group responsible for creating an artist-in-residence program for the city.

Cooking is another love, especially big meals with lots of company. My children and friends like to call these events "feasts," and that is a good description. In the coming season I will be extending my back yard tomato patch into a kitchen garden, as the whole family loves fresh things to eat.

When not cooking, writing, caring for my granddaughter, or managing Mavhouse, I love needlework. Mostly I knit, but occasionally I will spend extended periods of time with counted cross stitch.
