A fully equipped gourmet kitchen with many new items for your enjoyment await you. A powerful Camp Chef grill on our 12x24 ft. covered porch has the propane provided for you. There are 3 blankets per bed: a light summer cotton blanket, an allergy free warm duvet, and a medium weight quilt all on beds that are allergen and bed bug protected.
Our home is centrally heated and air-conditioned for your comfort and convenience.There is also a new Jotul gas log stove with a hand made hearth surround to warm you on chilly nights.The windows are plentiful if you care to enjoy our wonderful cool mountain nights in the summer.
There is a fire pit for reasonable sized fires in the field which is away from the woods and house. We provide the firewood. We ask that you take care and responsible use of the fire thus insuring the fire is out when you leave. Our well water is exceptionally good, really a tasty mineral water. The best is straight from the tap! Our new on demand hot water system supplies the kitchen and master bath. Please be patient, the hot water takes a minute to get there from the laundry room.
In general, please respect the natural environment here. It's common to see threatened box turtles in the road or garden, and we can have black bears though infrequently.
Smoking is permited only outside and away from the house, not on or near the porches. I'm sure you will find this home a comfortable and serene place to vacation.

My husband John and I live in the lower floor of the home. It has a separate driveway, entrance and full facilities.
