Moved here in 1990, our 1940's home was once the Officer's Quarters at Velox Naval Depot. You will enjoy your privacy in the above garage apartment that was once the maids quarters. The apartment has recently been beautifully refinished.
The Maids Quarters has been recently refinished and sleeps two in a cozy double bed. You will find all the necessities including a mini fridge, microwave and a Keurig with an assortment of coffees and teas for your caffeine needs.
A cot or play pen are available for an additional fee of $10. Please request during inquiry so I can edit the fees.
The Maids Quarters is very secure with private access through the coded outer door and lockable apartment door at the top of one flight of stairs.
You are welcome to use the back yard with horseshoe pits and the deck at your leisure. An evening at the fire pit that can be arranged with the host.
Interaction with guests
We are here to make your stay enjoyable. Any questions we can answer about the area are welcome. We live in the main house and I am a stay home mom, so I am often around and love a good chat.
Other things to note
Full bathroom has a bathtub with a handheld shower (Euro style). It is under the dormer (ceiling slopes down toward faucet) and is only functional as a stand up shower for hobbit size folks or smaller.
The Maids Quarters is stocked with games, extra necessities you may have forgotten, as well as books & guides to the area. If you start a book you want to finish, please feel free to take it with you.
We have 2 dogs, 2 cats, and a house rabbit in the main house and yard, however the Maids Quarters is a pet free zone.
There are multiple honey bee hives on the property. They are very interesting to sit and watch and are as gentle as can be. It is best to approach them from the side, out of their flight path and try not to look like a black bear (wear light colored clothing). I do keep epi pens on hand in the highly unlikely chance you get stung.
No smoking. No animals.
Visitors are welcome with prior approval.
*I live life, not worry about or fear it.
*I love creatures. Besides 3 people our family consists of 2 dogs, 1 cat, 2 rabbits and several bee hives. I never pass up a zoo.
*I love to build/rebuild and create whether it be a garden, craft project, light fixture or a vintage trailer.
*I love to see the world either camping or flying to foreign lands. My favorite places have been the jungles of Belize in a one room casita with no electricity and subzero winter in Stockholm. I love history, castles, ruins and old junk.
*I am cheap. I buy used clothes, used furniture, used cars. I travel cheap. I don't need stylish hotels...I plan to be out doing stuff, not hanging out there... however I love a comfy bed. Hoity Toity would never be used to describe me.
*My bucket list: Drive a piece of heavy equipment, visit Machu Picchu, skydive, learn to weld....
