Our guest house sits about 30 yards from our house on 1.29 acres of hilly, wooded land full of deer and birds. The guest house is one room with a full bath (bath and shower) and an alcove kitchenette. One full-size bed, desk, views of woods, Wifi, large closet, garage parking. I also have a 20' by 30' photo studio in the main house that can be rented for an additional fee. Photos are included at the end of my photo stream.

ที่พัก

The guest house is small, about 200 square feet. It comfortably fits one person -- but can certainly fit two (depending how they feel about each other...haha...or even three if that third is very small.) The optimal number of guests is one, as, in size only, it's a bit like one of those New York City studio apartments. Several single working people have spent months here, working out of the apartment and have claimed to be quite satisfied with the experience. The Wifi has recently been upgraded and people who need reliable web access should be fine.

The bed is full-size. (IKEA Malm frame.) I recently swapped out the single bed and a photo of the new, bigger bed is forthcoming...

The bath is full, with nice water pressure and ready hot water, and there is a kitchenette -- stove, refrigerator, toaster oven, coffee maker -- in an alcove.

You would be about 30 yards away from the main house where I live with my husband. The main house is of historical interest because it used to belong to the modern artist Jasper Johns. Indeed, Johns designed some of the unique features of the main house and he turned part of the house into a huge, light-flooded studio where he painted his famous flag paintings.

ผู้เข้าพักใช้อะไรได้บ้าง

There is plenty of parking. If you would like to park in the garage that can be arranged. The guest house has a small deck but you would certainly be welcome to wander around our 1.29 acres (not a huge area but nevertheless...) There is a small brook at the bottom of the property and some people like to follow its path. Deer like to hang out in the backyard. You'll probably also see wild turkeys, hawks, turkey vultures, chipmunks, squirrels and many kinds of birds, including the odd crane near the stream.

Always be aware that you may be near poison ivy. I recommend wearing long pants, socks and shoes if you walk in the woods around here.

การสื่อสารกับผู้เข้าพัก

I recently suffered a huge personal tragedy and am not feeling very social but I am always happy to help if some problem arises or if you want information about the area.

สิ่งอื่นที่ควรรู้

Besides the possibility of poison ivy hiding in the deep grass?....If you plan to walk around in woodland and tall grass please be aware of the danger of deer ticks. There is abundant information about deer ticks and tick bites on the internet. I recommend reading up. Tick borne diseases are a serious matter. A more minor hazard: My wood chuck lives down by the steam bank, near the big pine trees. He's dug about four holes and you don't want to catch a leg in them.

If you arrive after dark please be advised that the driveway is dark. There is an illuminated street address sign but not much light around the head of the driveway, and it's a bit steep and sharply angled if you approach it from a westerly direction. There's not much I can think of to do about the lighting situation short of putting in lights that would disturb my neighbors and just generally look crass and garish. Just be prepared to turn on your brights and proceed slowly. This is a more rural area and the street as a whole could be a lot darker than you are used to if you are from a city.

But please also bear in mind this is not a remote-forest-experience (not in the least.) We are situated in a town that's a mixture of rural and suburban. The house is bounded on one side by an acre (not a large area) of trees and stream, but on the other side there's a two-lane, paved road that gets plenty of traffic during the day. (Though not so much at night.) It is DARK up here after dark, so house numbers are hard to see and you'll do better with a GPS.

Winter Is Coming (well, eventually.) Most people around here have 4-wheel drive cars. This allows us to cope with slippery roads and snow-choked and steep driveways. Our 4-wheel drive Subaru Foresters are awesome in snow -- just like little tanks. (There's a reason the Subaru Forester is the National Car of Vermont -- Just kidding, but they are ubiquitous up there.) If you have one of those flimsy little Zip Car tin thingies...um...how do I put it...life may be harder for you. The little oil-fueled heater we keep in the guest house is powerful, silent and doesn't blow that awful dry heat you get with an electric heater. If you find the air too dry, however, you will find a humidifier in the closet.

* No smoking inside please...
* If you bring a dog please clean up after him and have him sleep on something other than the coverlet (on sheets is ok). Dog hair sticks to those coverlets like crazy, even after they've been washed.
* You can check in after 4pm; check out time is noon.
* You agree to be kind to my septic system. A septic system means I have underground pipes emptying into a septic tank on my property. Since it's on my property, I have to maintain it and replace it if it breaks down. It's very old and I want it to last many more years. Please do not put anything other than paper in it (except for the obvious.) That means no paper towels, wipes, tampax, and droppings from a cat litter box as they will probably contain some gravel.
* Please talk to me if you have a problem. Solutions to most problems CAN be found...

I had a lovely stay at Stephanie's place. The forest views out of the windows were so nice. As she says, the place is not in the middle of the forest, but since you are below the street and looking down on the trees, it has that feel. I also like that that one is surrounded by books, that has a comfy feel for me. I did not have a car, but Stephanie let me borrow her bike, which was great to go to the park nearby and to pick up dinner. I am not a writer, but this seems like the perfect place for a writer to be alone and get some work done in a quiet, comfortable setting.

If you're looking for a different type of lodging, Stephanie 's place is for you. Though small (ideal for one person, but can fit two), her guest cottage provides comfortable facilities in a woodsy setting, with trees all around you. Cooking is a little tight--there's a two burner stove, with a small refrigerator, and sink. There is one bed, but Stephanie brought in a second one, both of which were very comfortable. The location is very convenient, less than half a mile from Route 9W with stores and restaurants. It is five minutes from the Palisades Interstate Parkway, with easy access to New York City, any many other destinations. Definitely worth your time.

Stephanie's place was the perfect spot for a quiet weekend away from the hectic work life of the city. Her bookshelf rivals the best collections out there. The maple trees in the woods provide a sonic escape, especially as the rain falls and the winds rustle the leaves. The birds sing and the air is sweet. It's a lovely, modest spot of you need solitude. Car required.

My husband and I are hard-working editor/writers (is there any other kind these days?) and former long-time residents of New York City. We miss the city a bit but love the amount of SPACE we have out here. We're both also big nature enthusiasts so we like waking up to bird son…
