Interaction with guests
We leave guests to their privacy and you are free to come and go through private entrance. We enjoy meeting our guests but leave it up to you regarding the level of interaction.
Please don't hesitate to reach out if you have any problems or questions. We are social, busy professionals and will be available via phone/text for assistance during your stay.
We typically enjoy our upper deck while leaving our guests to the sanctuary of enclosed backyard. In the summer months, please look forward to occasionally sharing the lower area.
Other things to note
We share our home with our dog Blue, an Olde English Bulldog. She loves people, and is completely kept out of the guest areas. If you would like to meet her we are happy to make introductions. She plays hard and sleeps hard, so you may occasionally hear her snoring!
