Our home has room for everyone! A spacious mud room/toy room, a quiet and cozy sitting room, and a lovely, comfortable family room complete with gas fireplace make up plenty of room to relax and enjoy. Parking spaces and front/back porches as well!
What makes our house unique is simply that it is well-equipped for a family, or for just a couple people. The split level makes it ideal for many, but it isn't so large that you can't enjoy one another. Very homey and inviting!
Guests will be able to access majority of the home, including laundry room, both bathrooms, all bedrooms, both living spaces, mud/toy room, and kitchen. Outdoor spaces are available to guests as well, with the back and front porch, parking spaces, and yard. The attic would be the only off-limits space to guests.
Interaction with guests
Depending on the timing, we would be available to help during the guest's stay. We travel to Ohio to visit family, but we also have family near, so we would be available depending on where we are traveling to or staying.
Simple: clean up after yourselves, leave it as you came. We don't expect perfection and understand that life happens, but we would expect respect with objects and space. Deep cleaning would not be necessary, but general picking up and putting things back where they belong would be ideal! With "events or parties allowed", we ask that they be tasteful parties/events that would not disturb a quiet, family neighborhood. There's a difference in a few friends enjoying a drink and each others' company, vs. a large, loud crowd bash. So please plan accordingly ;)
