Very quiet neighborhood. No close neighbors. This a new house built Dec 2015. There are two rooms on Airbnb with a shared bathroom on one end of the house and I live on the other end of the house with my own bathroom.
There is a new queen bed 9/2016
My bathroom is available if the guest bathroom is tied up.
Plenty of parking and room to move about outside with good views and wildlife. I have a mushroom farm here, please ask for a tour.
It's a nice walk to the stream below my house.

The space

This bedroom has a full size bed and a single bed. Lots of closet space.
There is a shared bathroom with the other room but usually the other room is not booked. That room has a queen bed.
I provide washcloths and towels. This room has it's own heater and its own window AC so you can adjust the temperature to your own liking. I have internet with wifi but it may be too slow for HD movies etc.

Guest access

There is parking close to the front door. There is a shared bathroom with the other rented room.
Please ask to use the kitchen. There is a white refrigerator that guests can use. There is lots of ice in the black refrigerator.
Feel free to use the dining room . I have cold cereal plus almond/rice milk for guests. I provide orange juice upon asking.

Interaction with guests

Mt. bike rental and kayak rental is possible. Be happy to share traveling stories or leave you alone. I work 8-5 on weekdays and usually around here on weekends. I have lots of wildlife photography that I can show you mostly from here at the house. Say Hi to my cat Ghost Cloud although he is somewhat scared of strangers.

Other things to note

I am 5 minutes from Harrisonburg and you can find Mr. J's bagels five minutes from here that has an excellent breakfast. Food Lion and other stores are nearby. There are no close neighbors. It's very peaceful here. Lots of restaurants in Harrisonburg. Broadway/Timberville are five minutes north and have restaurants and convenience stores.

Room was exactly as described and the tour of the mushroom farm was really neat.

A great alternative than staying in the city. Orv was a very hospitable host who was helpful on telling me about the area and local restaurants that I can eat at. The two beds in the room was a bonus which most places do not provide. The only drawback is the place is driving distance to amenities.

Nice home-stay with Orv this past weekend. He was extremely friendly, including offering tips on sunrise spots and a bit of dinner. Nice quiet spot, located in good proximity to major roads.

Be aware of your gps trying to send you down the next door road. His driveway is just a few feet further in the u turn on the hwy if you're coming from the south. For those that need TV, or AC, inquire with Orv. For location (only 6 or 7 miles from downtown) and price, it worked for me.

Missed the turn onto the driveway but found it eventually! Orv was communicative and helpful, and I loved his photography! Wish we'd had time to see the mushroon farm.

Orv has a very unique home, especially in regards to it's location. Very close to highway, yet up on a hill in the middle of nowhere. We were there because of the loss of a dear friend, and Orv is a very laid back guy who allowed us our privacy. His place is private, clean & cozy. He is willing to talk or leave you alone. He has plenty of snacks & was willing to accommodate or be helpful. Plenty of covers for these southern folks who were experiencing their first cool evening of the season.

I like to travel and have been to Costa Rica, Mexico, Canada and traveled out west. Had a great vacation in London.
I enjoy Mt biking, kayaking, hiking, wildlife photography and growing mushrooms on this 4 acres of hilltop with a great view of the mountains.
I sell mushrooms at the local farmers market
