INTERACTION WITH GUESTS
We live in this home full time. However, my husband works full time and I am frequently away from home several hours per day offering you plenty of privacy, space and time alone. In addition there is a private living room with fireplace just for our guests.
However we are always happy to share recommendations or a glass of wine and conversation!
THINGS TO NOTE
We have a very friendly, lovable female lab on premises. If you like dogs you will love her and if you don't we will be sure she leaves you alone! Our dog is NEVER allowed in or near your guest quarters.+ More
