Frequently Asked Questions

1. What is the sleeping situation? Sleeps up to 6 people (king bed in master suite, A full sized bed in second bedroom suite (both are upstairs) and a full sized Japanese futon in the Den/BR downstairs. The sofa in the LR is also very comfey. Each bedroom has an attached full bath.
2. What is the best way to get downtown - cab, walk or drive? Our guests have done all three. Some guests have walked the entire way to the downtown action. Some have parked their cars at the base of the bridge and walked over the bridge to take the trolley. The bridge is only 2/10 of a mile long.
