Interaction with guests
Owner occupies 2nd upper bedroom (and is gone most often with a busy career) and a tenant occupies lower level (who is also gone working in the same business) so your housemate is most often, Buddy, a beautiful and friendly husky mix when he's not on squirrel patrol. Lower level bathroom is not yet complete so owner requires occasional use of the separate general upstairs bathroom but otherwise can be like a Ninja and you don't see him...seriously I tell you this in advance because I / we are not around much..you are "on your own" more than not and most young couples ' travelers like that part of the experience too.
Check in and Check out times are flexible, and can be any time of day. I have a large garden / woodland / Zen like place that is fairly quiet so it's a great retreat kind of experience...not so much a place for loud or boisterous groups...great for couples visiting people or attending weddings or business travelers. So no parties, or groups joining you...a friend or two to enjoy all this with you for a bit though is totally cool...great place to connect with people you haven't seen so inviting one or two of them to visit you while here is fine...fire table, sitting areas, gardens, grass patches, chairs and sitting benches are all around the double lot property along with walking path in the woods. Gorgeous sunsets, wildlife, moon and stars in the black of night FREE of charge...double person hammock too.
