8 guests3 bedrooms3 beds1.5 baths
This "far in the boonies" home is a great place to get away from it all! Large old farm home, well kept and clean. Located far away from any town or city. Stay for one quiet night OR a week to get-away-from-it-all! Plenty of acres to explore. Miles of small roads and trails to hike. Plenty of lawn to stretch out and fields to romp through. Small creek on the property to wade & splash in. Explore the old barn and watch the stars at night. Great for your kids, family and/or pets.

The space
This was my childhood home where my mom and dad lived for 55 years until their passing. It is a sturdy and happy home but it needs someone to visit it now and then. It used to be a farm until the mid 60s. A barn and shanty are still available for use. Granted, this home is a "throwback!"- my parents were no decorators so the style is very late 70's! But it is well stocked, clean, quiet, comfortable and ready for your stay!

Guest access
Anything that is not locked is available to you! That includes all floors, cabinets and furniture PLUS all buildings outside! (The detached garage is not available.) Help yourself to whatever food happens to be in the cabinets, fridge and freezer. (Perishables like bread, fruit, milk and eggs should be brought by you if you want them.) Kindling and firewood are available for use in the fireplace or the outside fire ring.

Other things to note
Welcome "the boonies". Therefore....
-There is no internet or wifi
-Cellphone service is weak but reliable for most mobile providers- about 3 "bars" outside and 2 "bars" inside. Verizon has the best reception. Cricket and Sprint have the worst.
-The HDTV is thru a roof-top antenna- about 23 channels- some channels are sporadic.
-We get water from a WATER WELL. It is tested regularly and is OK to drink but some think it tastes different. Fresh purified drinking water is available from a water cooler in the kitchen.
- We are currently having our woods timbered by a nice, one-man operation. You may (or may not) see or hear him. He's been doing this since October 2020 and is super nice! Please contact us if you have any problems (so far, nobody has!)
- In the summer when it is dry, you may run out of water if you take frequent showers or flush often. (Only two guests ran out of water since 2017.)
- Smoking permitted only outside

There's not much of a neighborhood. The nearest neighbor is 500 feet down the road and across the street. They keep to themselves. Past that is a family greenhouse operation. Up the road, the nearest neighbor is 1/2 away and he is pretty cool. The neighbor across the street from him is a super great family! If you bump into them, you will enjoy talking with them. Hungry? There is a nice back-woods family restaurant called "Grandma's Kitchen" about 3 miles away that is open only for breakfast and lunch.

Married engineer with 5 grown daughters ( 4 who are married) and a couple grand-daughters! I love building and fixing things. I like country music, bicycling on a tandem (bike built for two) with my wife and sushi. I like traveling to see friends/family, on business or to do a project. I love taking the train or bus to travel distances. My motto: "Leave this world a little bit better just because you lived."
