We are a non-smoking family and no smoking is permitted in the home. Smoking is allowed outside, but please leave the area clean of all cigarette butts.
No subleasing is allowed. This only leads to problems for yourself and your reputation.
We encourage you to enjoy yourselves, but remember that we have awesome neighbors within a short distance who enjoy quiet country living. However, where the house is located you cannot see the neighbors. This is not a party house. Absolutely no street or illegal drugs.
We hope that you will respect our wishes as honorable hosts and we will respect you as a welcomed guest.
We are an adventurous bicycling family who has stayed in many rental homes around the world. In 2014 we traveled 3 weeks through France and England by bike. We slept alternately in our tent, hostels, and many "gites" (rental homes). We do have some stories to tell!
We recently purchased The Blue Maison (aka Bleue) as an unfinished home in 2015 to customize it in hopes of giving fellow travelers what we have enjoyed in our travels. Also, it gives us an occasional weekend "staycation" only 12 miles from our home here in Calhoun. We are a very "green" family, always recycling or up-cycling. We were once featured on local tv as Dalton's "family of the week".
In the past we have visited Germany, Spain, Switzerland, France, Nigeria and many places in the US. Before we had our children we lived in Honduras for several years and became fluent in Spanish.
Reading about science and cooking are two of Richard's most favorite pastimes. I enjoy outdoor activities and am a "newbie" to running 5 and 10Ks. Also, I love dark chocolate and NOT getting up early! Richard and I both love "hanging" with our two children who enjoy biking with us. Friends are very valuable to us and we try to be valuable to them.
The house we offer is made for relaxing, cooking, hiking and shopping nearby, reading, finding unusual adventures and bicycling with friends and family. We also keep an updated list of fun things to do in the area.
