The front bedroom is sunny and has a new queen bed. The bedroom next to it is a cozy room with an antique 4 post double bed. The 2 bedrooms share a full bath with double sink and tub/shower.

This can also be rented with the guesthouse. Guests should note that the pool is used for swimming lessons from May into September. It's OK for guests to use the pool during lessons as long the child being given a lesson isn't distracted. Most young kids love the opportunity to perform in front of others.
We respect your privacy and will help give suggestions of what to do, you can join us for a cocktail and visit or we will leave you totally alone, your choice.
