Overview: This modern and cozy vacation home nests in lush, green forest near springs and streams. (King size) master bedroom including 3/4 bathroom offers complete privacy to guests. The second floor is all yours. Note: stairs are required. Guests enjoy coffee/tea and shared access to the home and 1+ acre property, which includes a full kitchen w/ DW, LR w/ gas fireplace, and extensive decks and gardens. No televisions, cable, phone lines, or Wi-Fi. Cell phone and data coverage is usually very good.
The Home: When you arrive, you will first notice the beautiful landscaping and flower gardens which are a year-round labor of love for me. You will also appreciate the freestanding outdoor fireplace which was part of the original farmhouse on this site and built two centuries ago (1820). There is ample parking and turnaround space in the driveway unless you are towing a long trailer (please contact me in advance if this is the case). The house features wrap-around, partly covered, and partly screened-in decks that include two ceiling fans. The modern home was built in 2010 and as you enter you will notice the shiny 3/4-inch pine floors featured throughout the first floor and stairway. Other features of the house include a shared full kitchen with gas range, icemaker, and dishwasher. Also on the first floor is a shared bath with a full size tub and shower. The shared living room features cathedral ceiling, gas fireplace, lots of windows and light and french doors (to screened porch).
Accomodations: Upstairs is your private master bedroom with king size bed and private 3/4 bathroom. (A 3/4 bath is a bathroom including a stand-up shower). A door at the top of the stairs keeps your private space separate from the shared spaces. Double windows overlook the forest and give this room and bath a wonderful, relaxing, tree-house feel.
Provisions: Coffee, tea, organic 1/2 and 1/2, local honey, and organic light brown sugar is provided for your stay, but you are welcome to use any of the cookware, staples (please replace), and spices as well. The water is from a local, deep, and private well and is delicious from the tap. The washer and dryer are also available as needed for small loads. All bedding, linens, towels, and soaps are provided. Please let me know if you need anything else to be comfortable, and I will do my best to accomodate you.
Fires: Guests are free to use the indoor gas fireplace at any time except while sleeping, after basic instruction is provided. Outdoor fires are only allowed and arranged by request, subject to weather conditions, and advance notice is preferred. Interaction with guests
The offered private space is a master bedroom and bath on the second floor of my private home. This is the only living space on the second floor, so you have the entire upstairs to yourself. The rest of the space, with the exception of my bedroom, is common space and shared with guests. This is a listing for shared accomodations, but I am often away and will leave you with as much privacy as possible. I do love to engage and socialize with guests as you might wish, and I would love to answer any questions you may have about my home or the area.
