Interaction with guests
We strive for the balance of being friendly and helpful, yet quiet and non-intrusive. We value our evenings as our family time.
Other things to note
We have five chickens so free fresh eggs are provided, when available.
We also cultivate a garden, so there's an abundance of fruits and vegetables, all organic, spring summer and into the fall.
No smoking inside and please use a container outside. Be tidy, pick up after youryou self and any messes. We're pretty laid back hosts.
We are fine with small intimate gatherings. Please consider taking it inside after 10 PM as we are in a working class family neighborhood.
No harsh chemicals or strong scents, including scented candles, strongly perfumed soaps, or strong colognes.
Be respectful, our hands created Kathy's Kottage - a true labor of love turning it from a greasy, grimy, filthy, machine shop of 50 years, to the lovely space it is today.
Please pick up your own pet poo. There is no other dog that poops more than our own, and that is quite enough to pick up.
While we acknowledge and respect that fact that your pet is the perfect animal (we think our pets are too), your pet is required to be on leash at all times while on the property.
In addition, we reside in Clackamas County which has a 'No Bark' ordinance. Please know unconditionally whether your pet is content while you are away. Unfortunately we have no choice, if they bark, we will need to call you to come for them.

Sharon Cannizzo & Brad Gunn . . . our motto, one word - 'balance'. Balance in all that we do from work to play, to living on the earth. We enjoy helping others in our own quiet way, love gardening, our chickens, and our kitty, Mara Leona aka 'Miss Marley'. Our passion has always been sustainable living, from our first house we built in 1992 to our recently remodeled 1000 sf home we own today, which includes the 660 sf outbuilding that today is known as Kathy's Kottage.
