This is a nice sized studio. Organic mattress, high thread count linens and towels provided, and all the amenities you need away from home. Working glass paneled wood stove near the dining table, lots of windows, new appliances, some cookware and supplies to cook and eat in, records and a record player, books and games. Perfect for a solo traveler, couple, business travelers, families. It's small, so really better for two, but it also works well for a couple with a child. If you have a child we can provide a pack and play and we have lots of toys, outside swing set etc. to keep them entertained that could be shared. Extra charge for third person over five years old (please send a special request). A few things to note to make sure this is the right fit for you: The bathroom is fine, it has a nice luxury shower head and bathtub, but it is a bit small. Also, we live next door and have two little kids. They are pretty quiet and we are on the go a lot so not always around but you may hear some sounds of a family sometimes here and there through the wall or if we are passing by the window.
We live in the main house. The studio is a separate apartment with its own entrance. You can also make yourself at home to enjoy the acre of gardens, picnic and campfire areas or sit on the swing by the fish pond. Barn and main house are not for guest use.
Interaction with guests
We will be available if you need anything, but we like to give people their space so will leave you alone unless you reach out. We might be hanging out outside in one of the gardens sometimes - we garden a lot and our kids may be out and about helping. If you want to interact we'd love to chat with you, but if you want time to yourselves, we are also respectful of that. There is plenty of outdoor space to spread out.
Other things to note
Let us know if you want to build a fire in the stove and we will provide supplies for your first one. Additional firewood is available for $25 per fire.
There are lots of great books and records and things for you to enjoy while you are here - but please don't take any of them with you when you go. No parties please. No extra guests unless pre-discussed and approved, on a limited case by case basis for a fee. Smoking prohibited inside. Pets will be considered for an additional fee (no instant book please, we'd need to hear the details of your pet and send a special pet fee price).
