Interaction with guests
I am at your service while you are there. A couple of great restaurants and there is always something going on. I am usually in church, that is the church I bought and live in with my rescue dogs. It makes for a great art studio.
Other things to note
There are windows to watch the storms, look at the water and with the wood burning fireplace it's all too cozy. There is internet and cable and a PS3 player, lots of puzzles and games and a few toys for kids. Movies in binders. Roku is available upstairs. Lots of books ! Flowers for the cutting, snips available. Easels are in shed.
There is no smoking in the house. No tampons in the toilet - it is a septic/well system. You do not want that to crash in the middle of winter. Dogs are most welcome and cats. Please keep it clean and tidy. Garbage goes in the shed and I pick it up once a week.

65 years old and my body is falling apart. Going in for hip surgery on March 9 won't be answering anything until probably the 15th. I am a professional artist and art dealer. I rescue dogs and find them good homes. I currently have 3 un-adoptable senior dogs. I would live in the house if I could afford it. The rentals are a necessity for me. I do like to make people happy and hope you enjoy my home.
