*** THE SETTING ***
"Home Away from Home." *Peaceful* country setting bordered by an extensive woodland and close to the center of town.
In a quiet enclave, but this cottage is just a 15 -- 20 walk to downtown and the inner harbor.
Open space all around. (NO close neighbors, street corners, or busy traffic closely crowd this cottage, although there is * very occasionally* an event next door. This happens perhaps once a month.)
Restful residential neighborhood. Ample indoor space for privacy and to stretch out and relax.
Private, off-street driveway and parking for exclusive use of guests.
Many colorful informal gardens feature 50+ different flowering trees, shrubs, perennials and annuals on an acre of land, with woods adjacent. Separate screened-in summer house overlooks the gardens and catches the breezes.
Owners live next door for easy communication, and love to give personal recommendations. Friendly assistance available at all times.
We have a safe, large lawn where the kids can run about. You can keep an eye on them from the balcony/deck, or just enjoy a cup of coffee there in the morning or your own refreshments in the evening.
Comfortable indoor open floor plan living and dining space.
2 bedrooms, each w/ a queen and each with its own full bathroom -- all on one floor. Privacy for two couples is assured.
Washer and drier is on the living floor, not in the basement.
Second and 3rd bedrooms are great for traveling companions or your visiting guests.
Usual occupancy is 2, 3, or 4. A 5th guest can be accommodated for a $100 additional linens fee.
