We'd love to have you visit and stay in our upstairs guestrooms. The rooms are quiet and roomy plus you have a private bathroom. We're close to downtown, UNCG, the Coliseum, and the Proximity and O'Henry Hotels. Park in our driveway or catch the bus.
Our friends often describe our home as comfortable, cozy, and warm.
Your rooms are upstairs; we call the main room the "River Room" because of all the prints and books about the Mississippi River that decorate the space. You'll have closet and drawer space, plus a reading nook where you can curl up with a good book. Plenty of space for yoga or stretches in the room.
If you'd like more space, the "Green Room" is across the hall and is included as a bonus. It has a twin XL and a twin trundle bed.
We will not rent the rooms to separate parties, so you'll have the upstairs bedrooms and bathroom to yourself, regardless.
Please note that I work from home--my office is upstairs as well--but I usually work from downstairs in the morning and evening if we have guests.
You're welcome to relax on any of the porches or decks, as well as the living rooms. You can prepare food in the kitchen and eat in the dining room.
And, of course, you'll have your own bathroom with shower, sink and toilet.
As you like it! We love meeting new people, but also understand if your time is limited
We've got three pet laying ducks in the backyard, Cay (short for Cayuga, her breed), Gordita and Little One (Welsh Harlequins). Most people don't know they're there, but we enjoy just sitting and watching them wander and play.
We have an English Springer Spaniel, Lolly, born in September 2016. She loves people, but we can keep her away from anyone who lets us know they prefer a little distance.
We compost and recycle--just ask where the bins are for each.
We'd expect the same from you as we expect from ourselves as guests: free to come and go as you like, but respectful of keeping common areas tidy and being mindful of noise late in the evening/early in the morning.
As a host: My husband and I have lived in our home in Greensboro for about 10 years now. He's originally from Illinois and I'm from Texas, but both of us love Greensboro, particularly for the wonderful trails, local dining options, craft beer and welcoming community. Our house was built in 1941; we love all the fine touches like the moldings, bathroom tile, and cozy fireplace.
