Response from Ami:
Very happy you enjoyed yourselves and might return! Would love to hear about what adventures you had in New Paltz over the weekend!
Re: asking about about Studio - as you may recall, was upfront before the reservation about having guests in the studio apt on your weekend ... potential future house guests would never have to ask about this as I would always be forthright with that detail! Normally, I do not rent both at same time. In this case, the apt was already reserved and I communicated it immediately upon your initial inquiry :)
Re: water softener. I'm unsure of what this issue is referring to. The house is in a rural area, and is supplied with untreated private well water. The natural minerals in this water already render it soft, thus a water softener is not required. One of the minerals is sulfur, which at various times of the year, is detectable in the water's flavor. Therefore, I provide a local five gallon spring water dispenser in the kitchen that is always full for guests :)
