Enjoy a queen sized bed in our private guest room. Easy access to NYC via New Haven Line/ Metro North, literally a 7 minute walk from our home. We are a nice walk/drive to shops, restaurants, and the beach: kayak, or stand up paddle board!
If you want a taste of both the country and the city, our little 1830's house, with wide hardwood floors is in the perfect spot for you to enjoy both worlds! The house dates back to the 1830's or earlier. The room you'd be staying in is upstairs adjacent to our room.(must be able to walk up stairs) and has a large queen bed, brand new mattress, warm comforter, and fluffy pillows.
Because our house is older, when you walk onto the wide plank floors, they may creek a bit. The doors creak too. Also, another interesting feature of the home is the lower ceilings on the second floor, where you'll be sleeping. If you are 6 1/2 feet, your head will be touching the ceiling! We have a shy but very sweet cat, who may visit you or hide under the bed. The bathroom/shower room is shared with us, but there is a downstairs powder room you can use as well.
You will have access to your bedroom, the downstairs powder room, and access to the upstairs shared bathroom with shower. The dinning room is for you to use to eat any meals, as well as our outdoor patio. You may store things in the refrigerator or freezer. You may use the microwave and any utensils/ plates/ glasses. Please ask before using anything else in the kitchen. Please no cooking full meals.
We provide you with clean linens, full body towels and hand towels/wash cloths, as well as shampoo and (website hidden) of soap or body wash for showers. We ask you please hang your towels to dry after use so you can reuse the same towel. We try to be friendly in conserving water. Unless you stay with us for a week, please no using the washer machine. There is a very close laundry mat if you are desperate.
Interaction with guests
We will try to be there when you arrive but as we both work, it depends. If not, we'll have the keys in a lock box and will give you the code just before you arrive. You can interact with us as much or little as you would like. We are friendly and interested in our guests!
Other things to note
The controls for the heat/ air are downstairs, it's not room by room, unfortunately. So if it is too cold or hot, please let us know. We will also be happy to show you how to use the thermostat if we are not home. The floors are creaky in certain areas and the staircase upstairs is narrow and slightly steep. The interior doors are latch doors. There is no means to lock them. We have a cat who may curl up with you!
No smoking on property!!! No cooking please. Single/ couples only. No children or pets (the house is not childproof) No drug use on or off premises. No weapons. No extra guests that have not been already approved pre- booking. Please be respectful of house and neighborhood. We expect you treat our home and property with respect and care. Please just be tidy with shared spaces.
As your room is next to ours, we just ask to be courteous with noise level after 11:30pm during the work week.
