Hey! Welcome to our Sweet Retreat! We have a good reason for naming our guesthouse such a name... It was our former chocolate shop!! Yesssss...Chocolates! Our name was Classic Candies and we started our business in this space back in 1986. We are no longer in the chocolate business but do still make chocolates for our family...and now for you, our guests! With every visit, there will be waiting, a little chocolate gift from us to you!

The space
The kitchen island top is the original piece on which we made our chocolates. There are a few framed pieces scattered here and there reminiscent of our candy shop days. We offer a nice kitchen, coffee/hot chocolate/tea bar, 43" TV with Dish, Xbox, nice bathroom with walk in shower, and comfortable bedroom with new mattress. Outdoors, there is a fire pit, a patio area and a stocked pond, if you'd like to do a little fishing on the warmer months...or, if the pond water is warm, you can just feed the fish...throw a handful of fish food in pond and watch the water boil with catfish coming up to get a bite! Our guesthouse is on 3 acres just behind our main house. Enjoy the sunset and all of the night sounds...frogs croaking, crickets cricketing, and cicadas doing what cicadas do!

Guest access
You are welcome to use our fire pit. There is firewood, kindling, fire starter, lighter and lighter fluid in a container beside pit. There is, also, a patio across the driveway that you may use, if you'd like. It is approximately 50 feet away from the guesthouse beneath our main house. We have fishing poles and worms, if you'd like to fish in our pond. There are, also, 2 kayaks and paddles that you are welcome to use in our pond. The pond is smaller but still fun to paddle around in for a bit!

Other things to note
Pricing Variation:
My nightly price includes 2 guests. If there are more guests coming, please, put correct number of guests that will be staying when booking. I only charge $5/per night for each guest over 2. Just a little coverage for readying mattresses and bedding and the cleaning of all thereafter. I would appreciate it!

Thermostat:
You are welcome to adjust the thermostat to where would be the most comfortable for you.

Parking:
You are welcome to park anywhere it would be most convenient for you. Most guests either park in front of guesthouse to enter through living room or to the right of house to enter through the kitchen door.

Method of Entrance:
As for now, we leave the door open before your arrival. Just walk on in! There is a key to guesthouse on a notebook on the kitchen island for you to use during your stay.

Contact Us:
A cell phone number is at the top of the first page in the notebook on the kitchen island. You are more than welcome to call or text us during your stay.

Beds Available:
There is 1 bedroom with queen bed...
Other beds available for floor:
Full mattress (comfortable!)
Twin mattress (comfy, too!)
Futon couch with topper (again, comfy as well!!)
If any of these extra beds are needed, let me know when you book so I can have them ready for your arrival.
