Unfortunately, due to a recent change in our Township policies, one of the home owners must be present for all renters. However, we want you to know that you would have complete run of the house. Free to maintain your own schedule and activities. Although one of us would be present, we would want you to enjoy the house and its amenities according to your family's desires. We love babies, kids, teens, and college kids! We absolutely loved every one of those phases of our own children's lives. Having raised four children of our own in this home we love to have it resonate with the sights, and sounds of families enjoying one another, making memories and having FUN!!! We were always the house that the kids friends gathered in, and that our families gathered for weekend long holiday visits. So your vacation will be music to our ears, and eyes. We promise you will not have to walk on pins and needles because one of us may be in the house. Although it is our home, we believe that home is to be lived in and enjoyed! So come on over, kick back and make memories! We are NOT light sleepers so even if your teenagers stay up all night, with the bass up high, watching movies in the Theatre Room it will not bother us one bit! It will just remind of us of happy days gone by. We will make use of the master bedroom/bathroom, our studies, the kitchen from time to time when you are not in it, and stay out of your way. There will be many hours of the day that we will not even be home. We are very flexible and easy to get a long with. It's not like we have to "be with you", it is just that we must not leave our home in your care. We have had many families enjoy their stay and not even know that we are there. There is plenty of parking so we would not even have to ask you to move your cars. Of course, should you desire us to help in some way, we would only be too happy to do so. We apologize for this inconvenience but we, we feel as good citizens, we must abide by our Township ruling.

Traveling with babies, children, teens or college kids? We gladly welcome them. We have a port-a-crib, bedrail, and highchair. We also have lots of toys for various ages, children's books, puzzles, videos and DVDS, and tons of games! Since we have a pool, we do ask that NO children swim without adult supervision. We take safety very seriously, we did so with our own children and we would ask that you would as well. We ask that you keep the pool gate closed and locked when not in use. Our 20'x40' heated pool is so refreshing on a hot summer day! We have a few pool toys, swimmies and noodles along with a table with umbrella and chairs, and 6 lounge chairs pool-side. Beach towels are also provided. You are welcomed to do laundry should you like. It is on the main floor.
We would ask that you respect our home as you would your own. Yes, this is our real home and not a rental property. Our things are precious to us, just like yours are to you. However, it's not a museum it's to be lived in and we have loved raising our family here for the past 17 years. However, with that said, we would hope that you would keep an eye on your children, keep food in the kitchen, eating areas, theatre room and downstairs seating area. We would as that not smoke in our home or bring in an excessive amount of a alcohol. No pets please. Although, we are "in the woods" we do have neighbors, even if you can't see them very well. We would ask that you consider them when outdoors. For example, no loud
screaming in the pool after 10 pm, etc. Please note that your hostess is highly allergic to fragrance. Please do no wear perfume or cologne on the day you arrive or during your stay. That would be so appreciated. Finally, please use the same common sense that you use in your own home, unplug the toaster and coffee maker after using, be sure lights are turned off when you don't need them, don't run the air conditioner with the windows open, etc.

Hosting people in my home has always been something I love to do! I have always dreamed of turning my home intand this is is great way to
to make my dream come true! While living in London, England my husband and I learned the joy of traveling and staying in B & B's. We were able to travel to most of the countries of Europe. We LOVED it! I enjoy getting to meet new friends, gardening, relaxing at the cabin, scrapbooking and reading. I work as a School Librarian for a K-12 school and enjoy my work very much. I've been married to my wonderful husband, Jerry, for 36 years. We have five fun adult children, who learned to love traveling early in their lives and one dog who loves to ride in the car!
