Please close and lock the windows when you are not in the house.
SOUND travels a bit between the upstairs and downstairs. From midnight-8am, please keep the noise down.
Please use coasters.
SCENTS: Please be considerate about using perfumes and scents, since other guests would like to enjoy a relatively scent-free space (and it's hard to remove strong perfume smells from the sofa).

Also no hate crimes. Please don't commit any hate crimes.

The door to the office on the main floor will remain closed and locked during your stay.
