Cute 2 Bedroom Craftsman Style House in Salisbury Hardwoods & Lots of Character
Please Read The Entire Description:
This is a cute older craftsmen style house in the Fulton Heights Subdivision of the city of Salisbury that we are in the process of restoring. It has two bedrooms and one bathroom. Sleeps 6 means we will allow 6 people to stay here, but there are only two space provided for four. You would need blankets or air mattresses for others. It has a full kitchen that was remodeled within the past few years. It also has a dining room and then a living room as well. The living room, both bedrooms and the bathroom have real original hardwood floors that have been fully restored.
There will be a charge of $30 an hour for guests arriving more than 30 minutes later than the arrival time that they give us on the day of arrival. Arrival times must be sent in the message thread upon booking. You have to return the Docusign and provide a driver's license to check in.
Illegal drugs will not permitted on our properties under any circumstances. Smoking is not permitted inside any house or cabin or on any screen porch. There will be a $750 charge for any smoking in either of these areas. Illegal drugs being used anywhere on the property will result in a $750 charge. Kegs and hookahs are not permitted anywhere on property under any circumstances. There will be a $500 charge should either of these items (kegs or hookahs) be found on the property (this includes outside areas too). If smoking (inside or on screen porches), illegal drugs (meaning what is illegal in Virginia), keg(s), hookah(s) or fireworks (there is a $500 fine for having fireworks or for shooting firearms at a property) are found on the property the guest will be asked to leave and there will be no refund whatsoever for any portion of the stay (including any future days/nights). Guests failing to check-out by 11 am agree to pay $50 an hour for a late check-out beginning at 11:01 am. If the guest is still there at 12:00 noon then then the charge is another $50 and so on with each additional hour the guest overstays their reservation. Late check-outs require prior written permission and applicable late check-out fees to be paid.
The house does have WiFi set up. Code is on modem. We will do nightly stays here, but we would really like to rent out this house on a longer term basis... weekly or monthly. The house will be furnished if you'd like it to be even for long term rentals. Price is somewhat negotiable for a longer term rental too. The key word is somewhat.
The house has very warm central heat and has central A/C as well. Sleeps 6 means how many people are allowed to stay the house. That does not mean there are beds for 6 people. There are two beds and a sectional couch. You are welcome to bring sleeping bags or blow up mattresses for the other sleeping.
There is a 32" TV in the living room with Direct TV and house also has WiFi. We have not done anything at all to the outside of the house yet, but plan to fully restore it to what it would have looked like just after it was built as funds permit us to restore it. Your staying here will directly help us restore this property. The basement is completely unfinished. The laundry room has not been updated at all so it is older and not remodeled, but there is a new washer and dryer you can use. A couple of the door handles (older style door handles) to the laundry room and the second bedroom are either loose or missing. The baseboards are original and when we ripped up the carpet, the OSB and the glued tile that was under that (there were 3 layers of flooring covering the original hardwood floors), that left about a 1" black line on the baseboards. We've yet to decide if we're going to sand down the baseboards or replace them. We also need to have one of the two outlets in the kitchen replaced. The yard needs a good bit of work and we hope to get started on some landscaping here soon. We also plan to redo the front porch and the front dormer windows too. Some of the houses on the street have been updated and others have not. There is free parking on the street right in front of the house.
Pets are always welcome with the paid pet fee(s) and the pet fee depends upon the length of the stay. Nightly and weekend stays are $55 per pet. Longer stays like two weeks are longer will depend on size and type if pet. If you send a reservation request without including a pet in your request, but are bringing a pet, a request for a pet fee will be added. Pets are not allowed on furniture including, but not limited to, beds and couches. Please don't let animals on the sheets and comforters are not to be used as animal beds.
Noise must be kept down and parties are NOT permitted.
Check-in time is 4:00 pm until 8 pm and check-out is 11 am. A late fee of $20 an hour for check-ins after 8 pm, with prior approval, before booking. $30 an hour without prior approval and possible cancellation of the reservation without refund. If guests have any problem with any noise from any neighbors we ask to be made aware of this so we can address it. One house down the street has a dog that barks too often for our tastes... and your letting us know allows us to call it in and have the issue dealt with by the city. Kids count in the amount of people. Please include all kids and babies in our count of people.
No smoking in the house. No beer pong or Hookahs. Noise must kept to a minimum and quiet hours are 9 pm to 9 am.
Guests are required to sign a rental agreement prior to arrival and provide a photo ID. For this reason, the person who makes the reservation has to be the there at the time of check-in, unless the contract is signed and arrangements are made for someone else to check-in in advance. We may use Docu-Sign to have the contract signed. If not signed before arrival, lockbox access will not be given. This Document is agreed to at booking but we have to have the Docusign version for our insurance.
Because this is a real old house, there are things you should expect to find on occasion in an older real house such as spider webs (we clean them for every guest but they do reappear quickly), ladybugs, tiny critters and the occasional stink bug during certain times of the year.
All pet fee(s), early/late check-in or late check-out, firewood or extra person fees are not refundable once paid. Failure to show up/check-in or contact owner before midnight of day of arrival will result in cancellation with no refunds. Host reserves the right to re-book property if guest does NOT contact owner and/or fails to show up for the reservation. This is a nonrefundable if cancelled property.
Let us know if you have any other questions at all and we're looking forward to you staying ourselves, whereas we really think this is a cute little house and Sallisbury is a nice town.
No check-ins or checkouts on Holidays such as but not limited to: Thanksgiving, Easter, or Christmas Day. Owners only have the right to cancel a reservation without refund for reservations made to check in or out on these days. If owners allow the booking, a charge of $100 will be charged to check-in on these days.

About Katie & Steven Robert Jones
We have 5 daughters. One who is 7 another who is 4 and then the third daughter is 3, our 4th daughter is 2, and we have an infant. :) We moved from Texas to Virginia for me (Steven) to finish my college degree and Katie was a middle school teacher until 2013. We fell into the vacation rental business accidentally when we bought the cabin next to our house in Virginia to keep it from falling into disarray and had to figure out how to make the mortgage payment on it. We started by renting out that first cabin in June of 2011, we now both do this full time while raising our girls. This is far harder than anything either of us has ever done and we are now at 55+ months without a single day off. Neither of us had ever heard the term, "the innkeeper never sleeps" and now we live it everyday. This is all we do every single day of the year. If you need something on Christmas or any other holiday we're always available to help. With that in mind, please know though that we're not a big company and we have no outside investors... we are just a husband and wife (with 4 young kids) trying our best to create great vacation memories for our guests. We personally own every property that we rent out. Our cabins are not perfect, but they do have character, history & warmth. We believe that we are far more honest than any of the competition when it comes to our properties listings. You will find full descriptions of each property that list the good and the bad (our properties are not perfect, but that is only because we do not yet have the finances to make them perfect... they will all get there though as funds permit). Our properties are always improving though since we put every last dime back into the business to keep improving things. If you are looking to stay someplace that is unique then you'll love it here.

Very responsive - even in midst of other issues
Katie is the most attentive owner we have worked with --- even though she and her husband have other homes "in trouble" from the sever storms in other states. Communication at this level makes everything so much easier for us.
The inside of the home has been renovated -- a beautiful place. This place is centrally located to all needed shops, cafes, "ladies" things, etc. Five to Ten minutes gets you anywhere you need to go.
Great weekend stay for Catawba Homecoming.
Very cozy and comfortable
Very nice layout and very clean. Great that there was a washing machine and dryer.
Excellent house. Close to everything.
We had an excellent stay at this house. Attentive owners and super accurate listing. We appreciated their honesty. Cool A/C, WiFi worked great. Comfortable beds and a well stocked kitchen (just bring food). Liked how close to all of the restaurants and stores this house was. We will stay here again when in the area.
We enjoyed our stay immensely. Just be careful of the missing stair ay the front of the house, in broad daylight it was no problem though. The house itself was perfect, clean, neat but very homey. I would stay there again without question, and hope to again at some point.
Great cozy place to stay
Nice quiet place to stay. Enjoyed the cozy feel of the house made me feel at home.
