This single family home is within a mile of Jordan-Hare Stadium; an easy walk on gameday or for any campus events. From the door to the stadium, the walk is about 15-20 minutes. We have a fenced in backyard with a firepit and extended deck that is perfect for grilling out, tailgating, or hanging out with your furbabies. Inside the house there is a mudroom, a large common area, and a full bath for each bedroom.
This is a rustic 3 bed/3 bath home that is minutes away from the raucous tailgating scene at Auburn University. We are English and History teachers, respectively, so the number of book cases should not be surprising! Feel free to browse the shelves! Our kitchen is stocked with all the essentials, and we have a large open room that is perfect for catching up with other football scores from around the country on autumn Saturdays. We have leaves to extend the farmhouse-style dining room table that perfect for larger parties. All of the bedrooms are roughly equal in size - each has a dedicated full bath. The "Master" bathroom has recently been repainted, but it is equal in size to the other two. We will provide shampoo and conditioner as well as fresh linens and towels. If you do plan on using the air mattress during your stay, please let us know beforehand so we can have it set up for you upon arrival.
Our house is end lot in a housing development, and is also next to a retention drain, which allows for more privacy than you may expect. The backyard is completely fenced in, and we replaced the deck two years ago. We have two garden boxes in the backyard as well - feel free to pick some fresh tomatoes, jalapeños, or cayenne peppers! We have some inconspicuous mesh wire around the deck in order to make sure any smaller dogs can't go on unsupervised adventures. We recently installed a fire pit, and can have a bundle of wood ready if you request (please adhere to any drought restrictions that may be in place). The deck has a bench built into it, and we have a table with six additional seats (two are rockers!) for larger parties. We also have a fully functional propane grill and a table umbrella for shade.
Although our pets (two dogs, two cats) will not be on the premises during your stay, feel free to use any pet toys, crates, and water bowls that we have in the house. If you forget pet food, we have more then enough (including some wet food!) to cover your fur babies for the weekend. (We feed our older dog Hill's Science Diet and our younger pup IAMS, and out cats eat Purina Cat Chow).
Check-in is a little later than most locations, but that is because of this semester's teaching schedule. In order to ensure that we'll be available to give you a quick walk through and access to the property, please plan on checking-in no earlier than 4 pm.
Общение с гостями
Depending on the weekend, we may be out of town ourselves, so there may be a surrogate "gatekeeper" in town that you can get in contact with in case of emergency. Other weekends we will be at a different location here in Auburn. Feel free to interact with us as little or as much as you wish!
Другие важные подробности
We have the property listed as "Not Suitable for Children" because we have not secured any of the heavy bookcases directly to the walls. This is really the only concern we have with the property - if your children are old enough to not still be discovering how quickly or how higher they can scale things, then there is nothing to worry about.
In case of emergency weather (always a possibility in Alabama), we do have survival materials, extra water, and food stored in the central room of the house that you of course can access.
