Interaction with guests
During your stay, the extent of all interaction is completely up to you. All communication is conducted thru the AirBnb messaging platform. But, we are always available via telephone, text and/or email to answer any questions, make suggestions, and/or respond to any emergencies. As a backup, we are fortunate to have the help of a very reliable co-host, Pam.
Other things to note
During the day our loveable, yet energetic Border Collie 'Roxy', will spend her time in a separate area located on the main level of the home or in the backyard. In the evenings, Roxy can be found in the backyard exercising or spending time with us on the couch. For guests who prefer NOT to interact with Roxy, please let us know in advance and we will take the necessary steps to respect your wishes.

"Our happiest moments as tourists always seem to come when we stumble upon one thing while in pursuit of something else.” — Lawrence Block
Greetings! My name is Debbie and I was born and raised in the Washington DC area. Those who know me best say, "I've never met a stranger" and I'd have to agree. I have a passion for hosting, entertaining and learning new things. My husband, SK (Jamaican native), I and our fun-loving Border Collie 'Foxy Roxy' occupy Mowatt Manor. We are extremely easy-going and approachable.
During your stay at Mowatt Manor, the environment will be comfortable, peaceful and quiet. We firmly believe quality accommodations should NOT break the bank - with that in mind, we have done our very best to ensure your stay is affordable without compromising an ounce of quality.
