You’ll love my place because of the comfortable Queen size bed in a large private bedroom with it's own bathroom, closet, sitting area and coffee station in the basement (about 500 square feet of private space). There is also a twin size sofa bed in the sitting area that can accommodate a third person. There is a set of stairs that must be negotiated to get to the space. My place is good for couples, solo adventurers, and business travelers.
- Smoking is allowed on the porch but not inside.
- There are cats in the upstairs part of the house that must not be let outside.
- The upper level of the house is private and not accessible to guests.
I'm very informal with the check in and check out process. I generally prefer for one of us to be here to welcome you and show you where everything is, but if that isn't possible I can leave notes with instructions. The first question I will always ask is what time you expect to arrive so that I can try to make arrangements for myself or my partner, Tom, to meet you. Check out is as simple as you leaving when you are ready on the appointed day.
I love hearing the stories of the various people who are passing through and I'd love to hear yours if you have the time and inclination to share while you are here. However, no pressure, I'm an introvert too so I get it if you prefer to keep to yourself.
I read an article about people of color having difficulty finding a place to stay here on Airbnb. I want everyone to feel welcome in my home regardless of race, religion, sexual orientation or any other metric. We are all human and we should all be respected as such.
Due to a hearing problem I sometimes have difficulty understanding people, especially over the phone. Please be patient with me if I ask you to repeat yourself or if I think I heard something that wasn't what you actually said.
Currently I generally only have our space listed as available every other week because we have an autistic teenager who lives in the house part time. He spends a lot of time running and pacing across the living room floor which can be loud at times in the basement. If this won't bother you and you would like to stay during times that I don't have listed as available on my calendar, send me a message and I will check to see if I can accommodate you during your desired dates.
Also, I could potentially accommodate more than three people as there is plenty of space to set up an air mattress or two. If you have a larger group who is willing to share a bathroom and live in fairly close quarters, send me a message with the details and we may be able work something out.
