The space

Small dogs are allowed but we would like to be informed if bringing a pet. We have 3 cats and their safety is a concern. Cute, one bedroom, one bathroom spacious home in outskirts of town. One mile to Chico State College. Easy walk to college and downtown area. Attractively furnished with original artwork. Very clean and comfortable.

There is a 15.00 additional charge for the third guest. Extra linens/bath towels will be put out for their use. Full sized couch for flat screen TV/DVD viewing with cable connection.

Closet door in bedroom opens by just pulling out on handle, NOT turning which makes it appear to be locked.

Spacious bathroom with tub/shower combo. Towels, lotion, shampoo, conditioner, hair dryer and body wash/hand soap provided.

Kitchen has microwave, coffee maker, toaster oven, refrigerator, blender and four burner gas stove and cooking utensils. Plenty of dishes and silverware for your use.

There is a mini split heater and air conditioner in the living room. When turned on to either mode it takes about TWO MINUTES to either warm up or cool down the house. Please turn OFF when not present. In the summer if the kitchen blinds are left closed until about 3 PM the house stays much cooler. This also applies to the bedroom window blinds facing the driveway.

Restaurants and downtown shopping area nearby. We have provided a Chico area map as well as restaurant guide/menus and coupon book for local restaurants.

Lower Bidwell Park is close, just a bike ride away or 5 minute car ride. Upper Park is 10 - 12 minutes by car and beautiful. Chico has a great Farmers Market every Saturday morning and also on Thursday evening through the summer. The vendors offer local produce which is amazing. There are also several flower vendors that sell some gorgeous bouquets. A smaller market sets up on Wednesday mornings in the summer near Trader Joes. Happy to give suggestions for activities and recommendations for restaurants.

Coffee, tea, 1/2 & 1/2,fresh fruit/yogurt are provided upon arrival. We have eliminated bottled water in order to not contribute to plastic pollution. There is a Brita water filter for your use.

The cottage location is in the front area. The covered carport is for your use while staying with us.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Phyllis & Johns place! It was very clean and comfortable, we had everything we needed, the pictures & written description are very accurate. The location is just minutes from downtown, CSU, and all that Chico has to offer. Definitely great super hosts, we would definitely stay here again!

This cottage was great! Very close to everything I needed. The place is GREAT, it was exactly as Phyllis descried. She even left us pamphlets about Chico, food brochures and fresh fruit. I will stay here again when visiting Chico.
