Guest MUST make prior arrangements. So I can make myself available. I (Susie) Do all the Washing & Drying of guest laundry/clothes. This service allows me to schedule my time with my own laundry needs & other guest laundry needs and allows you to go do things rather than wait for laundry to wash and dry. 1-4 Guest staying 5-9 Nights 3 loads can be done 1-4 guests staying 2-4 nights 2 loads can be done.

Other things to note
We have Well water here and the water is very hard so we have a water softener to take care of that, once in awhile the water tastes a tad saltly so I provide bottled drinking water and bottled jugs for coffee and refilling your water bottles, TV is Roku U tube TV complete with local stations and more. Also NO PET'S or SERVICE animals as host has issues with pet dander and pet hair. SORRY!!!
