Interaction with guests
We want your stay to be wonderful, so just tell us what you will need and we will accommodate.
Other things to note
We have a farm with farm animals and gardens that will need attention so we will be around the grounds feeding them and caring for the property at certain times. We do our best not to disturb our guests and will make it a point to not disrupt your stay.
Please, NO PETS. NO SMOKING...and we would really appreciate it if you could please remove shoes upon entering the home. THANK YOU!
We expect guests to treat our home with respect. It is a special place for us that we want to share with you and we would appreciate it being left the way that you discovered...only with a few more stories attached :)
Rick and I are easy going, world travelers. We met overseas while studying and spent time working on farms in Europe and driving across the great USA before returning to work in Ithaca. We love meeting folks and sharing adventures.
We believe that putting goodness out into the universe will generate goodness in return.
