Interaction with guests

I will be present during your stay and will assist in anyway you need, or if I'm out, you can reach me by phone at all times.
I understand when traveling some guests may be seeking reflection time, others may want to socialize, Either way, I respect my guests.
If I am away, my manager lives nearby and he will be able to assist you as well. From my experience in traveling, I feel the best way to get to know an area, is by just exploring on my own and finding my own treasures & memories!
*For those who may be without a car, If I'm available and you are arriving nearby, as a courtesy, I will pick you up.

Other things to note

** For Long-Term Stays for 1 month or longer, we can discuss price, laundry & kitchen use, etc.!
*In my travels and staying at some 4 or 5 star places, I felt that the sheets, pillowcases, were not as crisp and clean, as I thought they should be. Being this is important to me, I do my best to provide my guests with clean, crisp sheets, & pillowcases. I even give them a quick ironing. :)
*I will require the proper ID upon arrival. Drivers License for those from the USA and passport for those out of the country.

I had a wonderful time at Mattie's place - it was a perfect escape from NYC where I was able to find some quietness and peace. Her home is very clean and full of positivity - I had the best sleep in years. I would defiantly revisit in the future. Highly recommended

Mattie's place was excellent. Fantastic location. Enjoying morning coffee while looking out at the lake was so relaxing. Mattie was so helpful and attentive to all the little details of making my stay the best possible. The cottage is spotless and filled with welcoming messages and touches. I was in the area to attend a family event. Hope to return to Mattie's in the future.

An absolutely clean, cozy, and attractive place to stay! It was peaceful and quiet with a backyard view that was every bit as good as the pictures. Mattie lived up to her Superhost rating. She was there when needed but quiet and unobtrusive when not. Continental breakfast was perfect with French organic coffee and healthy choices. Anticipated my needs and attended to details like hypo allergenic bedding and even ironed sheets! Can you ask for more?

My boyfriend and I stayed at Mattie's home in hopes for a quiet memorial day weekend getaway, and we found exactly what we were looking for. The house is very quiet and peaceful and the backyard has a delectable private view of the lake. It was all very charming. We also enjoyed the company of Mattie and her daughter Gabrielle, who were both great hosts. They warmly welcomed us with wonderful conversations and accommodations such freshly made coffees every morning, bottled water, and light snacks.
