My two-story 157 yr old farmhouse is a quick drive from Buckhannon on a quiet country road. I am < 30 min from EXIT 99 on I-79, 28 min from Elkins & 30 min from Weston. My dog Sadie is friendly and my cats make an appearance. In town events- Farmer's Market, Jaw Bone Park, River Walk & WV Wesleyan College. Area attractions- Trans-Allegheny Lunatic Asylum, Stonewall Jackson Resort, Audra St Park & Campground, Holly River St Park & Campground, Stonecoal Reservoir & WV State Wildlife Center.
My home is a large two story farmhouse built in 1860. Your bedroom and shared bath are on the second floor. The other shared bath is on the first floor off the kitchen. When you first see my home you'll probably notice that the outside needs some work. :) As an old farmhouse, it always "needs work" somewhere!
When you walk inside you'll see the warmth of the living room and the old large kitchen. Please utilize these rooms. The fireplace is double once serving the kitchen and living room. I have a phone booth in my home- my Dad salvaged it from the WVWC Benedum Campus Center when he was the director there. One bath, with shower, is off the kitchen as is the back door. By this point you will likely have seen my dog Sadie, super friendly, and probably one cat.
Upstairs there is the second bath, with a tub and shower. Your room room is up the hallway first door on the right, look for the sign on the door. I have two other listings at this end of the hallway both with signs on the doors.
Please close your door when not in your room or a cat is likely to run in (my rooms are pet-free). You have two full size comfortable beds (one's memory foam) in your room with extra pillows and a throw in the closet. You have two windows with attractive blue blackout curtains, numerous lamps and a ceiling fan. There is a wall mounted TV for viewing Netflix along with a desk for your use. A mini fridge is located in the first closet on the right as you enter the room and you have a large second closet too. It's a generous size room with a wing-back chair for relaxing. Please turn off lights, air conditioner, heater and TV when you leave the house. Thanks! Enjoy and ask if you need anything--
Guests have access to my shared living room, kitchen, front and back porches, and both shared full bathrooms.
Unless I notify you otherwise I will be at my home to host you while you are my guest. I do work during the school year but I will keep you updated.
Please leave your shoes at the door. You may use the fridge (there is a small fridge in your room as well), the microwave, the coffee maker and basically anything you need to make yourself at home in the kitchen. I'll show you where the dishes, cutlery and such are. Please recycle and use my compost.
Don't feel a need to make the bed when you leave. :) It's easier on me if it's unmade. Thanks for your help my wonderful guests.
