My place is close to the city center, shopping, and Chico's crown jewel, Bidwell Park. I am also about a mile from Sierra Nevada brewery. I have a wrap around porch and back patio where guests can relax, read or enjoy a a peaceful moment in my quiet neighborhood. The guest room has an attached bathroom for extra privacy.
My home is part of a walkable community. It has Starbucks and other shopping about 1/4 of a mile away. It also abuts the cities current green line, so there is a beautiful walking trail right outside my front door. Along the trail you will see a 200+ year old blue oak tree, and in spring, swallows that nest under a bridge, as well as a carpet of wildflowers. The trail is not strenuous and is a little over a mile long.
As a guest, you will have access to a private bathroom that is attached to your room. You can also enjoy the backyard fire pit and front wrap around porch. Guests are also free to use all the common space in the home.
I love interacting with guests, but I leave the level of interaction up to my guests. I have made dinner and eaten a meal with guests, and I have had guests that preferred to keep to themselves. I am happy either way. This is about YOU, the guest, and I will follow your lead.
I do not mind a smoker staying here as long as you are willing to smoke outside.
I just ask that you be quiet, respectful and clean up after yourself. Basically, be a good human.
