Our kids are grown up. Two upstairs bedrooms are available in our 1900's farmhouse . Double bed in one room. Trundle bed in other. Shared bath downstairs. Kitchen privileges. Wood heat in winter; AC in summer. 5-10 minutes to town or campus by car.

The space

We bought this old run down farm house 30 years ago and fixed it up. We love it here. We have 2 bedrooms for the one price. Can sleep 4 using both rooms. Cora's room with the trundle bed is very small. There's not much room to walk around with the trundle bed open. Bonnie's bed is a standard double with a firm tempurpedic mattress. You can use Cora's room as a dressing room if you don't need it for sleeping. Keep in mind that we have one bathroom in our home.

Guest access

We have plenty of parking space. Guests are welcome to use the kitchen. We'll provide juice and breakfast items that you can help yourself to. We also have a separate living room that guests can watch TV or snuggle up by the wood stove. We have cable and Netflix in the living room. There are no TVs in the bedrooms. Front porch is a lovely place to sit. We do share one bathroom with clawfoot tub, shower, and laundry. We have an outhouse outside as well for emergency or just a great place to go to the bathroom.

Interaction with guests

We'll enjoy meeting our guests. We are a good resource to our community and Southeastern Ohio. We enjoy not being pestered when we travel and will afford our guests the same courtesy.

Other things to note

You'll be renting two rooms. Bonnie's room has a double bed (Tempurpedic mattress). Cora's room is quite small and has a single bed with a trundle under it. We don't have locks to the bedroom doors.

We ask that you set up your office in the bedroom or the living room, not the kitchen. It is too busy of a common area to be a work space. We do request that you keep your wet towels in the bathroom. You don't have to take off your shoes when you come in. We don't care what time you come and go. Just common courtesy is expected. We do not have any pets. Smoking is OK outside or on the porch.

For me, this is the kind of stay for which Airbnb was invented - a comfortable safe stay in an interesting setting with delightful and friendly people. Phil and Suzanne are another pair of hosts that, five minutes after you meet them, are your friends. These are people who practice saying yes to life. The house is an old place minutes outside of Athens on a nice swath of land with birds and a wallow. It's easy enough to find. Because it's old, there's a single bathroom. So if you're a prissy person who's afraid of the occasional spider, you may not like it there. This would have been a better stay had there been a friendly dog, perhaps with a person's name, like "Paul." It's that homey. my kid was graduating from OU and there was some family drama lurking. Suzanne and Phil were kind enough to let me vent and were cordial and welcoming to my graduate and his friend when I brought them by, and welcomed my daughter for the night she stayed with us. Lovely people.

Response from Suzanne:
Thank you for the lovely review. You missed our wonderful dog Lilly. She's buried in the back yard. We lost her last winter. Needless to say she was the best dog ever. You would have loved her.

Phil and Suzanne were friendly, interesting hosts, and their home is incredibly comfortable, cozy, clean and warm. The house is historic, and full of interesting architectural details. The setting here is really special--lots of birds, flowers, and as they state, peace and quiet. I would plan to stay here again if I'm back in the area.

Phil and Suzanne are great hosts. Their house is an old country home, very comfortable. I definitely felt I could make myself at home.
