--In the main house, there is a foosball table in the (unfinished) basement, where guests are welcome to play. Please note that the ceiling is low in certain areas, so any tall guests will need to be mindful of their head.
--There is an outdoor firepit with chairs to enjoy; please see additional information labeled "OUTDOOR SPACE" below.
--A hair dryer and showering essentials/bath towels are available. Each bedroom has clothing storage and hangers. There is also an iron and ironing board in each home.

The main house sleeps max of 9 people in the following areas:

--Living area: 2 people total (pull out couch).
The studio sleeps a max of three people (two adults ane one child) in the following area:

--A large, flat screen smart TV is hooked up in the main house living area, though we recommend the outdoors over the tube! ;) There is also a flat screen TV in the master bedroom of the main house, as well as a TV in the studio.
--High Speed Wifi is provided.
--A washer/dryer is available for your use in the unfinished basement of the main house. This is easily accessible for those staying in the studio, however, the studio does not have its own washer/dryer.

--The shared outdoor space in the backyard has 12 plastic adirondack chairs and a firepit. Please note that guests are responsible for bringing their own firewood. While the yard is fully fenced, neighbors on both sides do have dogs. The dogs DO bark when they see new people; although we've found that they typically taper off after we've been outside for awhile.

We welcome guests of all backgrounds! However, due to prior disrespectful renters and property damage, we will only be accepting booking requests from:
--Users who already have positive reviews.
--Users who have provided verified government ID.
--Renters that are above the age of 25.
--Renters who are not bringing pets.
We value our relationship with our neighbors, so events/gatherings/parties are not to be held by guests. In order to keep the home in excellent condition for future guests, we are firm on these rules. We apologize for this inconvenience and thank you for your understanding.
***Note that if you are bringing infants/babies, these houses are NOT baby-proofed. (Furniture is not secured to walls, outlet blockers are not included, cabinets/drawers are not locked, etc.) We also do not have a pack-and-play/portable crib, so guests will need to bring their own.***
***Note that while both houses have undergone a full rehab, they are older and do have some low headers/ceililngs in certain areas. Taller guests will need to be mindful of their head in a few spots.***
***Please note that while there are no steps to enter the studio, it IS a very small studio without much elbowroom. There is also a small step down into the bathroom, and we've left just enough room for the "essentials." Those who are not able bodied may find it difficult to navigate this studio simply due to the space restraints. If you require more room for mobility purposes, please feel free to check out other properties we host by clicking on our profile.
