PRIVACY FOR EVERYONE
We respect your privacy and will not enter your suite unless requested.
The upstairs of the house is exclusively for our family.
We both work and may therefore be out of the house -- or at home working -- for much of the time that you are here. At times our family members will be visiting and staying in other rooms.
We serve breakfast in our kitchen, or you may prefer to eat in your suite (or on our patio in good weather).
We love animals -- and pets are allowed under certain conditions (please call or email to discuss).
Guests have their own private bathroom, living room, bedroom, and entrance (and key).
WiFi is provided, as well as a desktop computer; and we can provide printing if the guest needs it.
The suite has a TV (not cable).
The suite has an electric tea kettle, water (Cambridge tap water is excellent and very safe to drink), and a small refrigerator. We also put out a few snacks in the suite.
