About the property

2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath (Sleeps 5)

This is where you want to come to be in a serene environment. This is where medicine is created and healing occurs.

My place is close to great views, restaurants and dining, family-friendly activities, and nightlife. You’ll love my place because of the neighborhood, the light, the comfy bed, the kitchen, and the coziness. My place is good for couples, solo adventurers, business travelers, and families (with kids).

The space

The house was built in the 1800's and the books say it was moved to this land in 1936. It has been remodeled and now its an open floor plan. There's a mirror in the living room because we hold a dance class on Wednesday evening. The second bedroom is partitioned with tapestries so there is no door. The tv is sometimes unable to play DVDs if it gets deprogrammed ... which happens if the batteries fall out of the remote. . but we have several channels to choose from if you feel like watching.

I've created several medicinal and edible gardens for humans and other creatures. Watch out for poison ivy as this year it's been happily working it's way into different parts of the property. Birds love it though.

Avid bird watchers will like swinging on the back porch and hearing the many different songs of the birds that reside or migrate here. There are so many butterflies and fast lizards to study as well. Or you could sip coffee or tea and view the flowers bursting into bloom from the kitchen window. The house also contains an old piano that sounds strange but it's fun to play if you feel inclined to be musical. My apothecary lies just outside and you may see me pop in to blend some fresh teas or other herbal remedy. I'm happy to share my healing spaces with you.

Interaction with guests

If you need anything you may call / text or if I'm there in my apothecary just knock on the door! The Herbalist is there to help.

Other things to note

If I'm available, I like to make my guests feel at home by providing tea from my homegrown plants and fresh artisanal herb bread. I want to help people to feel nourished and cozy when they stay at my place.
