The room has a separate entrance and private bathroom. It is blocked off from the rest of the house. You will have access to your private porch and patio.
Interaction with guests
The room is completely private so you probably won't see us. We're right next door and are available any time. We love our town and mountains and are happy to chat and provide information about the area.
Other things to note
- We have a dog, Deoji, 80 lbs. He prefers people so no pets please. He is not allowed in your room but he may come over and say hello if you are outside.
- Absolutely no smoking.
- We understand that you are here on vacation so we don't have a "lights out" or "quiet time" rule. We do ask that you be respectful of our quiet and peaceful neighborhood.
We are open-minded, non-judgmental hosts who enjoy hanging out with folks from all walks of life. When not at work (Jack works in mental health, Raquel works in social services), we enjoy bicycling, hiking, gardening and quiet time spent at home. We follow a plant based diet and are always looking for interesting ways to cook tofu!
