Welcome!! The Wisteria Room features a queen bed, smart TV, in-room refrigerator and microwave, ample closet and drawer space, and shared bath. Self check in is available to established Airbnb guests with multiple positive reviews.
We are here to may your stay as comfortable as possible. Please see our blog at (URL HIDDEN) for lots more information about us, our home, and Sacramento. If you have any concerns, please let us know so that we can help.
If we have other guests staying with us, we will let you know when you check in. If so, please be respectful of them, particularly if you have a very late arrival or very early departure.
If other guests are staying, please be courteous about sharing the bathroom. If you'd like to leave your toiletries in the bathroom, you are welcome to do so in one of the drawers in the bathroom vanity.
Please keep the front door closed at all times (except when you are going through it), so the dogs don't get out to the street. Please do not feed the dogs table scraps. They don't beg during meals and we hope to keep it that way. If you want to give them one treat, there is a jar of dog cookies on top of the file cabinet in the family room. Tell the dogs to sit when you give them a treat. They will. Sophie, our Border Collie mix is always gentle taking treats, but you have to remind Colin to be "Gentle."
Please do not leave wet items on the wood floors, furniture or bed covers. It ruins them. Coasters are provided for your glasses and there are hooks in your room to hang wet things on. You are also welcome to hang stuff on our laundry line in the side yard.
Please leave your breakfast dishes in the sink or dishwasher. If you cook, please clean up after yourself. If you need pots, pans, or other cooking stuff, please ask. We probably have it. If you use them, please wash pots, pans, and chef knives by hand and do not put them in the dishwasher. It is too harsh for those items. Dishes, glasses, and flat wear are fine to go in the dishwasher.
Please remember to leave your room key! There is a $25 charge for keys that are not returned. Please lock the front door when you leave.

I believe life is short, and we should all try to be kind to one another and leave the world better (or at least no worse) than we found it. I'm a wife, a mom, a sister, a licensed civil engineer, a retired manager, a community volunteer (ccurrently a volunteer Court Appointed Special Advocate for foster children and formerly a Girl Scout Leader and volunteer for nine years), a mentor, and a friend. My hobbies include making things (quilts, stained glass windows, dolls, and I tried blowing glass once), being outdoors (kayaking, camping, white water rafting), photography, baking, and reading. I like theater, music, and movies. I'm a native Californian and have lived here my entire life.
My husband of thirty plus years and your cohost, Ken, is one of the nicest people I know. He is also an engineer (environmental) and all around handy person. He is a retired Assistant Executive Officer for the Sacramento Regional Water Quality Control Board. He knows something about almost everything. He likes music, reading (science fiction, mostly), and building stuff.
We're empty nesters. We have two wonderful kids, of whom we are very proud. With our professional interest in environmental issues, it may come as no surprise that we recycle, upcycle, compost, and use minimal pesticides. We try to practice water conservation, and we reuse our greywater (your shower water irrigates our flower beds). We also have a solar heater for our pool and photovoltaic array on our roof to reduce our dependence on the "grid."
We love to travel. Most memorable adventures include seeing sea turtles hatching on the beach in Mexico; having humpback whales surround our boat for about an hour in Hawaii; watching a lion hunt a gazelle in Botswana; rappelling into a cave in New Zealand to zip line through a pitch black cavern (and then free-climbing up two small waterfalls to get back out); having a police escort on about 12 miles of closed freeway to the closing ceremonies of a conference at the Great Hall of the People in Tiananmen Square in Beijing, China; and taking a series of gondolas over Mt. Blanc to get from France to Italy (with our young kids in tow). I've traveled most of the US and parts of western Europe. I'd like to sail around the Greek Islands.
We enjoy hosting people and learning about other places. In Ireland, it seems that most people have a bnb in their homes. When I heard about Airbnb, I thought "What a great idea!"
