During your stay
We prefer an introductory phone call with prospective guests. We will greet the guests and show them the house and how to get around, including a map of the area. Beyond that, the guests will have the house to themselves. Normally we will not be here to socialize with the guests. If we are not here, our neighbor will introduce guests to the house and be available as a first point of contact should any issues arise. We also offer an optional bed and breakfast arrangement if we are unable to vacate the house.
