This is our Home away from home and we hope you enjoy it as much as we do.
The Channing Cottage sleeps up to 3, there is a brand new queen size mattress in the bedroom that accommodates 2 people and a foldout couch in the living room with a twin size mattress that accommodates 1 additional person comfortably. There is a “mini” kitchen with a sink, refrigerator, microwave and toaster-oven along with silverware, cook and dishware. (no stove). There is a sweet, serene garden around the cottage and the entire property is gated and fenced.
You are welcome to spend time in the cottage garden, relax and enjoy the living green wall installations, or pick some rosemary, sage, thyme or parsley from the raised beds in the yard. We love to garden so you may see us tending it.
As we are traveling for business, we don't have very much person-to-person interaction with our guests, but we are always available via phone, email or text. We also provide complete check-in information prior to your arrival.
