Our guest suite has its own private interior entrance and consists of a bedroom, sitting room, private full bath and small hallway. We only host one reservation at a time so there are no other guests.
The bedroom has an antique 4-poster double bed with featherbed and vintage Laura Ashley linens. A large awning window looks out on the view and more light streams though a 2nd window and skylight. There is a wall-mounted flat-screen tv with built-in DVD player, and a Bose radio with CD player. The adjoining sitting room has a sofa and computer with internet access and DVD player. Wifi is accessible throughout the house and on the deck. All rooms have individual thermostats you can set to your own comfort level.

We encourage our guests to enjoy the living room, sunroom, deck and yard. Use of the deck's hot tub is included in our additional "Spa Package" [see that section for details]. Most of our guests enjoy feeding the chipmunks on the deck - we'll supply the seed (they may eat right out of your hand). In the living area for your enjoyment are a fireplace, flat-screen tv, DVD player and our DVD library. Our panoramic view can also be enjoyed from chairs in the sunroom -- especially nice in inclement weather. The 'overlook' in the yard has a sitting area with a chiminea (if you're in the mood for an outdoor fire); it's a nice spot to enjoy a glass of wine at sunset. Feel free to chill beverages or perishables in the refrigerator. Just ask if you have need for ice, ice bucket, beverage glasses, corkscrew, firewood (for the living room fireplace or chiminea), or for deck chair cushions if they've been stored away.
