Stay with us for Merlefest!Our guest room has a double bed & a bathroom just across the hall. Your stay includes continental breakfast in the morning. Enjoy our living room and large covered porch We have a housecat ,but the Guest Room is pet-free.

The space

Our alpine-inspired house was built in 1970 and has a cottage feel. We are perched on top of a hill, with a mountain behind us and tall trees all around. Our street is quiet, and we sometimes glimpse wildlife (birds, squirrels, chipmunks, deer, and the occasional rabbit or fox in our yard. We are very close to Rocky Knob bike park and not far from many great hiking trails. My husband frequents our local trails and will give you detailed information about hikes - just ask!

Guest access

Guests will of course have private use of the guest room and possibly share the guest bathroom just down the hall but are also welcome to curl up on the couch in our living room or den (both have fireplaces!). Our downstairs den has a TV, mini-fridge, and microwave for our guests to use. Our large, covered front porch is a lovely place to read, bird watch, drink tea, etc. We've got blankets and a porch heater if it's chilly outside! The porch has a mini-fridge for your use. The porch is also equipped with speakers if you want to use your phone to play music/pandora.

Interaction with guests

We will be in and out of the house during your stay. Each evening we will check with you to see if you need any help planning your next day (suggestions, directions) and to arrange the menu and time for your breakfast. We would love to enjoy a cup of coffee or a glass of wine with you and talk about your day, if you would like that. On weekday mornings help yourself to continental breakfast offerings in the kitchen. On weekend mornings, let us serve you something special like omelets, pancakes or eggs cooked to order!

Other things to note

Our house is home to a house cat (Freya). She might try to hop into your lap, but if you don't like that, you can push her down and she'll take the hint. The guest room has always been a pet free zone, so you'll find it clean and free of pet dander. Parking is at a premium here. When you check in, you will be assigned a place to park. Please use only that spot to avoid blocking us or another guest from exiting the driveway easily.

Karen was an excellent host. My wife and I stayed on a last minute decision, and she went out of her way to accomodate us and make us comfortable. Had a wonderful visit with her and Tommy. Would definitely stay again.

Everything was exactly as described. Karen and Tommy took time to make me feel welcome and made sure I had everything I needed. The room was very comfortable, but for me the best part was sitting on their lovely front porch. It was quiet and serene. I could have sat their all evening watching the fireflies!

Response from Karen:
Guests staying in the Guest room have exclusive use of the hall bath - and the toiletries there are provided for guest use. Sorry that wasn't clear for Carole.

Quiet neighborhood just outside of town. Tommy greeted us warmly and made us feel right at home.

Response from Karen:
We do use essential oils and sprays around our home, and this is the first time anyone has mentioned they found it bothersome. I'm truly sorry it diminished Becky's experience and we will reconsider the use of lavender oil or spray in this guest room to prevent this happening again!

Thank you Karen & Tommy for making our first Air BnB experience so positive! From the start, communication with Karen went well. We really appreciated this as we were unaware of how the booking process and interaction with a host worked. She kept in touch along the way and both she and Tommy greeted us warmly when we arrived and made us feel at home and at ease. They offered an array of suggestions about restaurants and provided a helpful overview of the area. Our room was cozy and immaculate and our comfort was their concern as they checked to see we had what we needed. Awaking to coffee and breakfast, we joined Karen & Tommy on their wonderful porch and so enjoyed great conversation, the relaxing surroundings, and their hospitality. We would definitely stay with Karen & Tommy again when in the Boone area and highly recommend their BnB to others!

This was the first time I used Airbnb and couldn't be more impressed. Karen and Tommy were perfect hosts with a home that was so comfortable. We just clicked, and I felt right at home. Thank you so very much.

Stay with us for Merlefest!Our friends have jokingly called our house their own private B&B for years, and one of them even named it for us: The Browna Divina. We have a sweet little guest room & bath across the hall upstairs on our main level OR a basement suite with a private entrance for your use, but when you stay with us, you are welcome to use our living room, den, kitchen, and fabulous porch! Your stay includes coffee, tea, and continental breakfast. We are interested in hosting people who want to come enjoy Boone! We can advise you on hiking trails, dining in the high country, ski resorts, and local events and help you plan your days while you are here. Come stay with us!
