Our home was built in 1910 and has as much character as it does age! This 2-story house has enough space so that you can truly find a quiet spot no matter how many people you’re with!!
No matter when or why you need time away from the normal routine, Time Out is a great place for relaxing, area outdoor fun, and memory-making.
Here’s a quick tour of the house:
Kitchen: Whether you’re serving sandwiches & chips, letting the crock-pot do the cooking for you, or making a full home-cooked meal, we think you’ll find that our fully equipped/stocked kitchen will help you be successful!! In an effort to help all of our guests stay well-nourished and full, you can expect the following: Standard fridge w/ ice maker, stove/oven, microwave & dishwasher. Small appliances include: 3 crock-pots (a large size for meals and 2 small for dips), griddle, toaster, George Foreman grill, rice cooker, waffle maker, electric fry pan, blender, hand mixer, food processor & coffee maker. The cabinets are filled with the normal plate sets, casserole dishes, pots & pans, tea pitchers, plastic containers, etc, etc. In addition, you’ll find a tray full of extra utensils and stack of plates in a separate area that will be perfect to pull out for extra-large groups.
Bedrooms: You can expect to comfortably sleep (in beds) up to 11 people and 2 more on the sofa sleeper. Here’s the breakdown of the 4 bedrooms, all of which are on the 2nd floor:
Bedroom #1 - queen bed with a (seasonal) heated blanket. This bedroom has a door with direct outside access.
Bedroom #2 - queen bed & 2 twin beds. This bedroom also features a small fridge & microwave for late-night snacking.
Bedroom #3 - double bed with a (seasonal) heated blanket. This bedroom features a wonderful desk area for a quiet get-away to handle emails, book-writing, and other business.
Bedroom #4/Master - queen bed with a Sleep Number mattress and a (seasonal) heated blanket.
The Sleeping Porch (directly off of bedroom #4) - twin bed. This is ideal for families bringing a little one ~ it will keep him close, but not right smack in the middle of mom and dad’s bed.
There are bed linens, extra blankets and pillows in each bedroom. You’ll find additional linens in closet spaces. All that said, when you’re at Time Out with family, friends, church groups, etc, you are more than welcome to let folks crash on couches, air mattresses, and deck furniture. The only “rule” we have about that is to be sure that your group is comfortable and everyone is having an equally nice time and enjoying their accommodations.
TV Room: this area will comfortably seat 6-8 as you watch a big game or a great movie from our video library on the 42″ flat screen. DirecTV with 100s of channels & a DVD player will provide shows & movies for any age and interest.
Family Room: enjoy a comfortable spot to chat around the fireplace or surf the web with our WIFI access in this separate seating area. The wood fireplace provides a cozy atmosphere to cuddle up to read, play a game with the family, or simply enjoy the quiet crackling of the wood. This room also provides a sofa bed that will comfortably sleep 2 people.
Dining Room: the farm-style family table seats 10-12. There are additional folding tables & chairs that can be set up in/near the same area.
Porch: this enclosed sunroom-type area is directly off the dining room. This space is really great for reading, card games, 'outdoor' lunches, and bird-watching. It makes for an excellent napping area as well!!
2.5 baths: the half-bath is on the main floor. The 2 full bath areas are on the 2nd floor ~ both have showers, one being a converted claw-foot tub. So, feel free to enjoy a bubble bath when you’re in Time Out if that will help you relax! Each bathroom is stocked with all of the standard toiletry items and towels. Extra linens can be found in closet spaces.
Laundry Room: you’ll have access to a full-size washer & dryer. Washing detergents are available for you to use.
Game Room: complete with a Foosball Table, Board Games, and various electronic fun.
The Deck: feel free to use the charcoal grill and enjoy leisurely meals outside. You’ll also find several great napping chairs!
The Yard!: a really great place to take a leisurely walk, sit and read in the sun or play Croquet. You'll also enjoy the fire pit just off the deck ... roast marshmallows, enjoy the warmth, tell family stories ... make memories!
Parking the Car(s): this will be especially important to know if you’re planning on sharing Time Out with a large group or if you are visiting the area for equestrian purposes. There are 2 driveway spaces from 2 different roads which means there is plenty of parking space without anyone needing to be on the road.
We really want you to have a home-away-from-home vacation experience that makes your packing a little lighter. Be sure to take note of all that is provided at the house ~ no need to bring things that we already have here for you.
To be super-honest with you, if you’re inclined to vacation in a home that is decorated with high-end furnishings, then Time Out may not be the spot for you and we won’t be offended if you look at other options!! Our place is comfortable and we really like it … it’s the kind of place that you can put your feet up on the coffee table (even with your shoes on). Our stuff is nice, but it is also comfy and lived in. If this sounds like your kind of place, then we can’t wait for you to come on over and enjoy some Time Out!!

CHILDREN. Families are welcome! Our home is child-friendly, but not necessarily child-proof. If you choose to bring your kiddos to Time Out, you’ll want to keep an extra eye open in regard to safety. We also ask that you set high expectations for your children and help them understand they are in someone else’s home and need to respect the home contents and property.
WIRELESS INTERNET. You’ll have access to wireless internet and will be given a passcode closer to your arrival date. If you choose to have a completely disconnected Time Out for yourself, kids or entire family, just let us know and we’ll keep the code to ourselves!
SMOKING NOT ALLOWED. Absolutely no smoking of cigarettes, cigars, or pipes should happen in the house. The Mrs. is highly sensitive and allergic. Smoking on the deck and in the yard is fine if that is necessary for you during your Time Out.
PHONES. A landline with free U.S. long-distance calling is provided for your convenience.
RENTER’S AGE. The renter must be 21 or older. No exceptions.
… because everyone needs an occasional Time Out!!!
Maybe you need a Time Out from a crazy-busy schedule or a stressful situation or just your normal routine.
Maybe you need a Time Out for some great family time or a chance to catch up on your sleep or quiet moments to start that book-writing project.
A Time Out can be for a number of reasons … and this is the perfect place to make it happen!!
