Beautiful Arts and Crafts bungalow featured on the cover of Old House Journal, Sept-Oct 2009. The home previously belonged to noted bluegrass musician Curly Dan Bailey, a radio announcer and bluegrass artist who played in the Grand Ol' Opry and toured with Dolly Parton. We even have a letter from Dolly about the house, which Danny purchased in 1965, the same year Dolly went to Nashville.
The house also features original artwork by Doug's great uncle, John Alan Maxwell, including original paintings Maxwell did for John Steinbeck and Pearl S. Buck.
We are happy to adapt a breakfast menu for you, be it kosher, gluten free, allergen-specific, non-dairy, vegetarian, paleo, or pre- or post-race food. Just let us know in advance and we will design a breakfast just for you. We use organic foods as much as possible without going crazy about it.
We love our guests. We have been Airbnb hosts since January, and can unequivocally report that our Airbnb experience has been utterly amazing.
Our guests are the coolest. We've met actors, organic farmers, photographers, international travelers, college moms, business professionals and retirees, and we just want to thank each and every one of them for allowing us to host.
