We will be available to offer recommendations or guidance concerning the area throughout the stay.
Bottled water dispenser is provided for drinking. We have our own well water. It does have a slight sulphur odor which is common in this part of the northeast. We do have filters on the water system which makes it less noticeable, safe and healthy. We have chickens and we have three honeybee hives to pollinate our orchard and flowers. The hives are well away from the living space.
Note that the loft bedroom is accessed by stairs to be considered challenging by elderly, handicapped, or small children.
Because of the nature of the property and the country setting, we will ask all guests to sign a liability waiver. No smoking in the building.
My husband and I retired in 2014 and are enjoying it very much. I love to garden and have many gardens to keep me occupied. We have a large pond where we have koi and trout. We love to feed them at dusk and watch them go crazy. I also have another small pond between our house and the BNB where I have goldfish. This pond is edged by smooth stones harvested from our stream and also from stones I have found on our camping trips to the beaches, lakes or rivers we like to camp at. We grow lots of our own food in our large veggie garden. The large stream running thru our property is a constant joy.
