This is not a rule, but some information that apparently I cannot enter on the Airbnb site. This site simply lists the beds, not the types or locations. The bedroom upstairs has a queen bed. On the landing upstairs are two pull out ottomans that are twin size. On the lower level there is a pull out queen sofa bed and a twin bed/chair and a half pull out. If you were to read our listing at Vacation Rentals by Owner, you would see the bed arrangement in these details. Recent guests did not have the full picture after reading the Airbnb description. Please let us know if you have any questions about the house before you decide to stay. Read the house guidelines that you find on the table. Be careful. Have a good time. Remember this old house is a non-smoking residence.
Your dogs are welcome. The charge is $10 per dog per night. There is no place to put this information on the pricing page. We love hosting bicyclists. We say rest and relax at Antietam Guest House. Park your bike and put up your feet. We usually do not meet our guests, and that can add to your true getting away feeling. When we do meet our guests, we have wonderful exchanges and new friends. Either way, we would love to have you stay at our house, other details at the Vacation Rentals by Owner site. Thanks for your time.
