Free parking right at the house. We will cook and serve you breakfast either healthy or decadent, depending on your wishes. Janly is British and will happily serve an authentic, freshly prepared Cream Tea if you order in advance. $20.00 for two persons.
Beth and Janly are always on hand to welcome you and show you around the house and garden. We can advise on the best places to eat and things to do, both locally and regionally.
Our neighborhood is very small and secluded, with virtually no overview from others. We love the seclusion that provides us with a hide away but also allows us to be in our thriving downtown or on the interstate in minutes.
As a practising artist, Several art works by Janly are on display and for sale. Beth, a professional photographer also has work for sale .
Guests have access to most of the reception areas of the house including a library sitting room, living room, dining room, front and back deck, all areas of the garden including patio and fire pit. We can find space in our fridge for small items as needed.
Interaction with guests
Either Beth or Janly are available most the time during your stay but you are entirely free to come and go as you please. We leave the lights on!!!!!! and if you are attending an event where you wish to relax and drink, we will gladly drop you off and collect you for a minimal fee.
We love to chat and get to know you a little if that suits but we can almost disappear if you need your own space. You call the shots .
Other things to note
Its best to allow at least 2 days to more fully enjoy Staunton and all it has to offer, especially if you are on a road trip and enjoying the journey as much as the intended destination. Kick back and stay a while. !!!
Gregarious is the name of the game.
NO smoking on the property.
No pets allowed, although we have 2 cats.
