Whether you're traveling for business, sight-seeing or coming for medical treatments this is the place for you. We are open to hosting small events but must be prearranged with the host.
We would like to share our little piece of heaven with you. Wake up in the morning, look out your window, & see horses grazing in the field? We offer direct access to Schooley Mill (an equestrian park) with scenic wooded trails for nature walks.
There will be a lock-box with a key for the apartment door. If you have difficulty unlocking the door or need to contact me immediately for any other reason, Our written phone number is on the lockbox. When you end your stay, please just leave the key on the table in the kitchen. FYI For your safety and ours, there are Ring security cameras throughout the property and the pool room.
You will have exclusive access to the suite which is pictured. The kitchen, which is fully stocked with cooking utensils and will be yours exclusively to cook in, pots & pans, dishes, cups & silverware, oven, 1 warming drawer, microwave, refrigerator and the list goes on. I will be leaving a packet of coffee in one of the cabinets. This should be enough coffee for 1 pot of coffee. There is sweetener, sugar, powder creamer and a few different flavored teas for your enjoyment to get you started. Please don't throw away the mason jar. Just an FYI, all the supplies, I am leaving you, were not packaged in a commercial kitchen, they were packaged in my clean home kitchen.
In the bathroom pictured, there will be a small bottle of shampoo and soap in case someone may have forgotten theirs. The shampoo is the VO5 brand so if it gets in the eyes it may hurt. Please leave the empty bottles behind, I reuse them.
The sleeping arrangements: The canopy bed size is queen, one of the futons folds out to a full size bed, the futon chair folds out to a single.
