*** We do permit larger events here. We do not assist in facilitating or coordinating such events, however the owner does permit them on a case-by-case basis. If you are renting this property for a wedding, family reunion, or any other event involving attendance of more than 26 guests (maximum number under advertised rates without additional guest fees). Please indicate the Event Impact Fee when booking online, or let us know if booking over the phone of your plans. We can then contact owner for approval. Parking for more than 8 to 10 vehicles is not feasible onsite, so off-site parking would need to be arranged with transportation to and from the property. Also clean-up and vendor evacuation must all be done prior to check-out time ***

Orient Express Suite (sleeps up to 4) - Large bedroom with king bed and queen sleeper sofa. Also has en-suite full bathroom as well as glass door which leads out onto the deck. This could essentially be considered the primary master suite based on the size of the bedroom and that it is a king bed.

Outside, in addition to the wrap-around deck on the upper level and the covered stone courtyard at the steps of the primary front door, you will find a wonderful wood-burning fire pit, a hot tub, and we are currently constructing a new outdoor dining and cooking patio, which will certainly be a big hit! Also to come will be an outdoor volleyball court (pictures to come once complete this summer).
