WHEN THE HOUSE IS NOT RENTED IT IS THE OWNERS' PRIMARY RESIDENCE AND TWO DOGS OCCUPY THE HOUSE. Although of course they are not in the house when the house is rented if a guest has dog allergies this home is not suitable. This is a TOTALLY NONSMOKING residence. The upstairs bathroom has a shower, and the downstairs bathroom has a tub and hand held shower attachment. Both bathrooms are modern There is a full dining room with a table which seats 8 persons. There is a beautiful, private, park like yard and small deck and some outdoor furniture for enjoying the outdoors. There are four bikes for guests use, a croquet set, a picnic table, and the owners' pet goats are always available for the guests enjoyment. More

Interaction with guests
In most cases the owner will be available to answer questions about resources in the area, directions, and specific questions about the house, either because I will be in the guest house beside the main property, or if I am not staying on the property I will always be available by phone..
