Your booking includes the entire third floor (almost 900 sq feet) of this impeccably clean Victorian home with access to the dining room, the living room with TV, garden patio, and high speed wireless service.
The third floor contains a private two bedroom suite and bath. The large bedroom is an elegant, calming space with a super comfortable queen-sized pillow-top mattress bed and plush pillows. Enjoy your morning reading or just simply relax on the firm yet comfy seating. Lots of natural light fills the room and there is an A/C to cool you off on the hottest of summer days. There is also heat during the colder months. We provide maps and local brochures to help you plan your daily adventures.
At night, the view from your windows is extraordinary. The greenery is lit so you can observe nature from your window. If you're lucky, you might just see the squirrels dancing in the trees.
The second (slightly smaller) bedroom contains a Queen-sized futon that can sleep two people or be used as a reading and relaxation nook. The large windows also let in lots of natural light and contains unique furnishings and art.
A comfortable, Queen sized air mattress can be provided upon request. This mattress sleeps two and can be neatly tucked into the larger of the rooms.
Freshly washed sheets will be provided for each room.
The beautiful hardwood flooring throughout the suite is original to the house and has been lovingly maintained over the years. All the carpeting is high-quality, hand-woven wool rugs.
The large private bathroom is newly renovated and very clean. The glass doors make it easy to walk in and out and the rainforest shower head offers a gentle, soothing shower experience. An assortment of toiletries and freshly washed towels will be provided upon arrival. A high quality hair dryer is also included.
