Retreat to a sun-filled home two blocks from downtown restaurants and shops. The Bee House was named for a love of bees and how vital they are to our well-being (there are no “kept” bees at the property). In the same way, this home is vital to our health. Once you have settled in, please read the house manual which is attached to the entry wall to the right just as you walk in the front door. Check out instructions are in there too.
It has all the charm of 1935, when it was built, but with all the modern conveniences of today. There is free high speed internet/wifi and cable tv, including Netflix. The two bedrooms and a cubby room gives ample room for 5 people to enjoy a stay. The Bird Room has a cal king bed, the Polo Room an eastern king bed, and a regular twin bed is in the Cubby Room (my granddaughter's favorite room!). The bathroom and kitchen are new. The kitchen is a cook's delight with stainless steel appliances, including 2 ovens, built-in microwave and a pot filler over the stove. Coffee maker, mixer, slow cooker, double waffle maker, blender... anything you need to either bake or cook. We have recently added a Nespresso "Vertuoline" Coffee maker. You can buy the capsules at Macy's, Sur La Table or online at Nespresso's website. You cannot use any other capsule with this machine because it reads the code on top of the capsule. At times, you may find capsules leftover that you are welcome to use.
The bathroom is supplied with plush towels, towel warmer, first aid kit, hair dryer, curling iron, shampoo & conditioner & bath gel & a wall mounted, lighted magnifying make-up mirror. The front porch invites you to relax with a morning cup of coffee or to recline on the daybed and read a book. Other amenities include a hammock under the tree in the front yard, outdoor patio set and Weber bbq gas grill in the back patio. In late November 2017, we added a Sundance Spa.
The property is not suitable for children under 4 years old.
The driveway will accommodate 4 cars if there isn't any street parking available. The key that opens the front door also opens the kitchen door.
My husband is a MFCC, Ph.D, so this is a nice retreat for us to get refreshed. We love to escape here too. We hope you enjoy your stay.
