Charming detached loft bedroom [1/2 bath inside the back door to the house & full bath is on the second floor of home]. The loft has its own small table & chairs to eat at, a frig, coffee maker, outside sitting area on a private deck, a full sized futon & a queen sized bed. There are two staircases to the loft one is steep [not for the elderly or children.] It is walking distance to restaurants, banks, supermarket, & gas stations. You may see deer, racoons, or rabbits, definitely cows!

The space

Charming Dutch Colonial home surrounded by acres of farmland yet within walking distance of all amenities [restaurants, banks, supermarket, gas stations]. Yet, none are visible from the home which has views of the farm. There are often cows in the pasture, deer roam in and out of the yard at night, and yes you can hear both cicada & coyotes! Expect a quiet stay with a worldly hostess.

There is a private loft over the garage a lovely bright southern exposure with a view of the rye field. The bathrooms are in the main house and would be shared. Come pick strawberries in Spring/Summer, then blueberries & your Christmas Tree in winter. I am a half hour from Yale in New Haven, an hour and a half from NY City, hour from Hartford, CT [Mark Twains home], and 3 hours from Boston, Mass.

Guest access

The second floor of the main house for showers. The first floor bathroom by the backdoor is the guests bathroom for their stay.

Interaction with guests

As much interaction as the guest would like, from me being totally out of sight, to tea & coffee chats, to suggestions of fun things near by to do.

Other things to note

Charge for more than 2, $15 extra. [There's a full size futon bed in the loft as well as the queen sized bed, so it could sleep 1-3 people. The loft over the detached garage is 15 x 24 and has a frig and a coffee maker. This is not really a good place for small children or those having trouble with stairs. [One set of stairs is VERY steep - though you need NOT use them.] More of a place for singles and couples.

Debbie's place is as described and a lovely retreat. Despite being centrally located to Monroe - it was extremely relaxing with my mornings spent overlooking fields of rye. Debbie is also a lovely host and I wish I had more time to spend chatting to her.

Debbie was kind and easy to live with for the month. The space was tidy and adorable. The Internet is sparse in the loft though if that is important to you.

As a first time user of AirBnb, I am so glad that Debbie was my host. She made me feel very welcome and was very helpful in getting me all set up. The room was exactly as advertised - a nice sized loft above the garage with a fridge, microwave and coffee pot along with a queen sized bed and a futon. The bathroom was right inside the door of the main house and I had no issues whether at night or during the day, even got greeted by the friendly cat most mornings! The pictures are spot on as well. The deck was a great place to enjoy the morning or evening (when it stopped raining!)It was a perfect set up for an extended stay as I spent the whole month here while I was starting a new job in the area. Highly recommended to anyone who needs a place to stay in the area!

The listing was accurate and better than expected. I love the brightness, white walls, the open windows and hippie wreathe. The flannel sheets are cozy and warm, with many calming touches. The room is spacious, especially for 1 person - ready to unpack and stay for a while. I came to the area for work, moving across the country and Debbie was really inviting, insightful about the area and willing to help with anything I needed. I stayed for almost 2 months and found the location to be perfect - easy to get to the grocery, highways and to work.

Wishing well acre was lovely and comfortable. Debbie took care of me very well. The house has a beautiful view of the farm, but is only a 2 minute walk to town. It was very nice to wake up to in the morning. The listing was just as described. I stayed 8 weeks there while working in the area and I felt at home the entire time. Thank you Debbie!
