We’ll also keep on hand some essentials such as basic spices, cooking oil, etc. There is a gas grill at the bottom of the spiral stair open to your use. When we have excess in our vegetable gardens, we will share with you.

Large deck for your sunning pleasure.

You will stay on the second floor of our country home and have private entry access through a spiral stair. The two levels are curtained at the bottom of the stairs leading to our kitchen and laundry area. In an emergency, that stairway may be used. Although there is minor sound transmission between floors, rest assured that your privacy will be respected. Having said that, while using the deck, fire circle, and grill, it would be impossible for our particular worlds not to cross. We feel that our guests become part of our household. We enjoy interacting as much or as little as desired.
The regular interior stairway connects the upstairs to the downstairs kitchen sitting area. Also on the lower level is the laundry room. Guests are welcome to use the laundry by making arrangements with us. It is also acceptable to use the interior stairway to transport luggage. Normally, guests like to use the outdoor spiral stair as a private entrance during their stay.
When more than one couple comes to stay with us, sleeping arrangements are decided. One couple may have a private bedroom. The other has a choice of either the bed on the screen porch (sort of luxury camping), or if weather is inclement, the convertible sofa. Note that unlike most sofa beds, this one is of high quality. It converts quickly and effortlessly, and provides a comfortable, firm, full-size bed. There are no painful structural bars under the mattress, only a solid feeling of support.
