No extra overnight guests are allowed, and no loud music/partying between 10 PM and 8 AM. It is imperative that you notify us if you'll be sleeping on the futon so we can provide proper bedding. No smoking or open flames (candles) indoors. Because the house is built on "piers" (raised), sounds carry, so we request that hard-soled shoes be removed whenever possible. Occasionally our dogs are secured outside in the back yard for a short time. They're not allowed into the rental space, although they would have you believe otherwise. We don't have maid service, so we'd appreciate your leaving the house as clean as possible. We'll greatly appreciate your reporting anything that is in need of repair or any damages that occur. We don't host families with children under 12, as the house is not child-safe. Please note that our prices are higher during some events.
