Charming updated farmhouse w/amazing view of Mt. Washington and Presidential Mountain Range. Private balcony & keyed entrance to a bright and spacious guest room that has the best view of the house. Kitchenette stocked with breakfast items. Open concept kitchen/dining area downstairs. Renovated (2017) full bath upstairs for (almost) private use (Master suite downstairs). Marvel at starry nights from balcony. Driving distance to dining, skiing, amenities, Littleton 25 min, Lancaster 10-12 min.
-PLEASE READ EVERYTHING IN ALL THE SECTIONS BEFORE BOOKING. I try to be thorough and communicative to facilitate your stay and my hosting.
-Spacious guest room has distinct bed, living, and kitchenette areas.
-Private balcony and keyed entrance.
-Full bath upstairs. The master suite is downstairs so the full bath upstairs is practically a "private bath" for the guest room. Renovated 2017 w/hardwood flooring, marbletop hardwood vanity, European faucet, brushed nickle halogen lights, oval beveled mirror medicine cabinet, water efficient toilet.
-The room gets great light throughout the day owing to a northwesterly facing balcony door and southeasterly facing window.
-Some people may find the stairs leading up to the guest balcony to be narrow, please be careful. Guests are welcomed to access their room through the main house.
-my neighbor across the street sells hay for a living and fertilizes their fields sometime late September through mid October. During this time there may be increased fly activity and 'farm smells' in the area. I keep an air freshener in the room, use fly spray and monitor the room throughout the day, but there's only so much I can do!
-Guest room, upstairs bath, guest room balcony. Arrangements can be made for use of kitchen, front porch or other living spaces downstairs.
-Washer/dryer available for guests staying at least 3 nights. (but please be mindful of the environment and the wear/tear on our appliances by not washing more than 2 loads)
-Morris has taken over the guest room closet. But, there is plenty of drawer space to use!
-I am friendly and helpful but am respectful of our guests' space. I am from the Boston/MA area; even though I opted for a 'quieter' rural environment, I enjoy interacting with guests from all areas and walks of life. I am happy to give pointers to area amenities like restaurants or hiking/skiing.
-I am sometimes away on business but when I'm home on weekends I offer to make omelettes or pancakes.
-Breakfast items and snacks are in the guest room kitchenette and may include any of: milk, cereal, bread, butter, English muffins, fruit spread, fruits, eggs, or pastries. Please let me know if you have specific preferences or allergies, I am happy to accommodate.
Dikkat edilecek diğer şeyler
-I have one chinchilla, Princess. She is nocturnal, but I keep her room door closed. (All doors in the house are solid-core-- versus hollow-core-- which helps to sound-proof the rooms).
Although I do not have cable television, our guests have found adequate media entertainment from the Internet.
-I have a home office and often work late into the evening. The office is also upstairs and I try to be quiet entering/leaving it when guests are around.
-The house is equipped with a water softener so the water may feel more 'slippery' owing to the minimal amount of dissolved minerals. Water is safe to drink from any faucet because I have a whole-house filter.
Last, but not Least:
...this is an 1850’s farmhouse. The foundation settles and there have been additions made. Floors may not be even and doors may ‘stick’ from frames that are not square. I get occasional bugs and flies not because I keep a dirty house, but because some insects find it a cool relief in the summer and warm relief in the winter. My neighbors keep horses and livestock. In September and October my neighbors fertilize their fields to sell hay for a living or make hay for their livestock so there will be increased fly activity. It’s simply not possible to seal every crevice to keep every bug out, given the continued settling, nature of original construction & later additions, and that my (very friendly) neighbors make their living in agriculture. I do my best to monitor the guest and bathroom windows in the morning and after dinner and remove what bugs I may find near the windows and doors. I love that this house saw so much history and that its imperfections add to its character. I do my best to honor and care for the house as it marches into modernity. Much thanks to you in advance for understanding in the spirit of Airbnb’s “experience a place like you live there!”
I want guests that are clean, quiet, trustworthy and responsible. Please, no parties or events. No smoking. No pets. Please also have read *EVERYTHING* in the listing description before requesting to book (esp. about the fertilizing and increased bug activity in the fall), as I try to be thorough and communicative in order to facilitate your stay and my hosting. =)
