Fully furnished, full kitchen, nice small living space, internet/cable, and private deck area with grill and seating.

Professional travelers for longer stays welcome.

The space
Great space for a staycation, as a work-from-home alternative, or get away.

Due to coronavirus, now block in between reservations to air out and allow the additional cleaning time required to take extra care in cleaning and disinfecting place.

This is a one story, small one bedroom apartment. There are two TVs connected to cable (Living room & bdrm). Place also has a desk/work station and secured wireless internet. Small kitchen and living room space but well equipped and comfortable. Large bedroom with new queen bed and good sized closet with additional closet off of the living room. Small bathroom with standup shower and bath sink is toilet topper which was a great solution for limited space.

Place also equipped with iron & ironing board, hangers, bathroom supplies (shampoo, cond, soap dispenser, towels, hand towels, wash clothes, hair dryer, lotion, tissue, hairdryer) & kitchen items including dishes, silverware, cups, mugs, wine glasses, pots, pans, strainer, blender, mixer, griddle, toaster, toaster oven, cork screw, bottle opener, can opener, coffee maker and keurig to help make your stay comfortable (some kcups, reg ground coffee, tea bags, and hot cocoa ind servings too!). All linens, blankets, pillows and extras are also provided. Bed and pillow cases have an extra protective cover.

You can set thermostat in guest suite to whatever is comfortable, year round. Thermostat located on Living room wall just before bedroom door. In the summer months there is Central Air.

The deck out back is private and great for peaceful relaxing. This is a country setting so must anticipate seeing some form of wildlife, usually bunnies and sometimes deer, but on occasion porcupine or raccoon.

The LED motion lights for walkway are always on and bright and will be able to see very well even on the darkest of nights. You can leave on or turn off the one in suite that controls side yard and deck.

IMPORTANT TO ALSO NOTE: Has well water (not city) so on occasion or if sensitive to sulfur smell, just in case - do not book. Is connected to soft water unit and filtration as well as water cooler and water bottles provided in suite. But still, if don't want well water, please don't book. Also bathroom does not have a regular separate sink but instead a clever toilet top sink and has small stand up shower only (no tub). There are only 2 units on this country setting property but main side just us and pretty quiet.

NO KEY needed with keyless electronic doorpad so can “check-in” anytime. Your unique entry code for your stay will be valid at 3pm on check in day until 11am check out day. It will be messaged to you prior to check in day but not activated until that day. Simply enter one digit at a time on the digit-pad located above the doorknob of front door and the green light will appear and will hear latch open. This allows you to come and go as you please during stay and “check-in” anytime since you won't need any actual key. After each “check-out” that code is deleted and not used again. I like the security of only one code activated at a time so no one else has access during your stay. Door also has motel style swing bar door latch for added comfort and security.


NO Local guest reservations, not intended as a local rental unit, must reside at least 80 miles out to reserve.

Guest access
Welcome to be anywhere in yard, there are a few places to sit and are welcome to move seating around, but would suggest to stay in mowed area and not wonder off on hill simply because of potential wildlife lol

Decided instead of renting, wanted to offer a nice place that would be private and comfortable where families and business people that traveled through the area could stay a night, week or month with all the amenities from home.
