In all seasons except winter, we generally require a 3- 5-night minimum, if you will be staying over a portion of a weekend.

✵ We’re owner-managed: Bella, your hostess, is very invested in your experience and will offer one-on-one support before and throughout your visit.
✵ Please, get in touch. Our response time is FAST (usually, under an hour) and, once we’ve discussed your basics (price, group size, availability), we’ll happily finalize your reservation. Thank you for your understanding.
I charge a non-refundable $69 accidental damage fee to cover damage up to $1,200. We never anticipate damage and, in 6 years, I've found my guests don’t, either. This does not include excess cleaning, which is additional. If you bring a dog on site, we will charge you an additional $400. That said, we do have a Ring Doorbell video/audio pointed toward the street
