However, if you ever need my assistance with anything please do not hesitate to contact me directly by text or call and I will be happy to assist you.
I can also give you directions to local stores or recommend you to a few restaurants around the area.
Keep in mind that we are situated in the countryside with plenty of mosquitoes, so don't forget to bring bug repellant. Also if you plan on hiking through our trails it is recommended to wear long pants and long sleeves to protect yourself from bug bites.
Our septic system uses a deep well for water system with a water softener
Another thing to add, we have a Rottweiler named Misty who is part of our family. She is a protective and territorial dog who will only be in our part of the house during your stay, but nothing to worry about :)
