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!
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.
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.
No smoking, no pets. Unplug the frig when you leave & turn off the air conditioner / heat & the lights. Take the used coffee grinds from the maker & the garbage into the house proper. Remove the sheets and leave them in the first floor half bath. More of a place for singles and couples. Park in the driveway in front of one of the garage doors.
