Save $$ by sharing this dorm style room, by booking this bed only instead of a whole room. Get jump on this best bed. Pool resources with friends without taking responsibility for or depending on their ability to pay rent and security with you. Reserve by booking. Shared bathroom/shower/tub. Shared common areas of living room, kitchen, patio, bbq, piano, laundry & bathroom/tub (sometimes in unfortunate state of squalor if those sharing don't pitch into clean.)
This listing is to share this room with other guests or tenants. Pillow top queen bed part of this 1/2 room split. Additional Single or queen beds available on demand if requested advance enough. See photos for optional additional bed layouts.
Euro style guest house. PLEASE PARK WHERE ASKED. Frugal communal use of shared spaces promotes social interaction like sharing meals, games, music jams, beer, & wine. Some guests have shared back country snowboarding, hiking, biking and bear watching together in the past. But sometimes ski resort workers get focused on their own lives, work & play, so don't take it personally if they aren't as inclusive as you &I would prefer. We rise before the sun to catch the bus, to set up the resorts with fencing, shoveling, signage, everyday so you can have fun in the snow &sun. We ride and ski hard on our breaks and jibs built in the woods after work, often passing out in our beds wet & hungry in our uniforms, just to do it again the next morning, & barely pay this rent.
This room needs to keep doors to hallway & Lions' Den open for heat to travel to rest of home. No real privacy. Try Purple Room or Veg Room if you want privacy.
Share kitchen/dining rm, patio, living rm, piano& accordion with ski resort workers &guests. Live like locals, put up with squalor in communal parts of home or help maintain cleanliness I bring evry 6wks, before it ensues. Don't book if you can't contribute to cleaning or cope. Central location, walk to woods, restaurants, G.O &bars.
Cozy & quiet home. Fall asleep to coyote song. Spectacular starry sky view from old vinyl patio couch. (You may have to untarp patio furniture, even shovel snow to use patio and fire pit or wood burning stove outside in winter.) Walk to wooded trails, Grocery Outlet, College Campus, restaurants and bars. Bike to beach (in summer.) Play piano and accordion. If hotel sterility and polish is what you're looking for, please don't book my place just to cancel or give bad review. This is like when you stay at your high school friend's grama's house in the basement. (unless said grama is rich. This is low income grama in Chicago or Detroit. ie busted door molding, unpainted drywall patches, stained carpet, holes in wall from doorknob opening over-exhuberantly, etc. Your room clean and cozy when you arrive, but kitchen and living room is how you & housemates choose to keep it. Sometimes filthy as some bachelors &over-privileged J1s choose to be til I come home to be mama.) I drive down from Portland to clean, be home, actively host &work at Homewood as often as possible. Sorry if I miss your visit while I open my home to you. I have more time to chat, show my favorite hikes, ski with you, go out for drinks and dinner, make friends, if I don't have to clean so much.
SHOES OFF AT THE DOOR PLEASE. Access to rest of home includes kitchen, living room, patio, laundry, piano, and bathroom. I come clean it at least every 6 weeks, much more during ski season, but this is your bathroom. Its your job to clean up after yourselves, or live in your own squalor if you don't, til I come be your mom. I'm sorry if its dirty on arrival. I do my best scheduling my work to avoid that. If you book last minute, its harder to avoid. Usually you start with a clean bathroom, but its your responsibility to help maintain it. Speak up if there is a problem. (Many ski resort workers are here on their first jobs, first time away from mama, or have servants at home in Latin America, Europe, S. Africa, Japan, Singapore, NZ & Australia. Be kind, show them how its done, or let me know who I need to show.)
Please park where specifically asked to avoid pissing off neighbors. Shared bathroom/shower/tub. Shoes off please in the house, all the time. Your friends too please.
Live like real locals by putting up with their squalor in shared areas of communal home. I will be home in & out during Dec., cleaning. Its these salt of earth gondola workers and pizza deliverers that make this town run. So don't book if you can't deal. Some smoke a lot of pot. Friendly dogs or cats may jump on you & your bed. Central location. Walk to woods.
Call/text me with any questions or problems, anytime of day or night. Otherwise you may not see me, if you miss my visit. However, please plan to interact with incoming guests; that is the point of me opening my home to a variety of people, sharing communal spaces. Please pool resources such as sober designated driver or Lyft/Uber, be generous with your cooking, beer & wine. I hope you'll make life long travel friends, and therefore return carpooling from the bay. Pardon resort workers if they are self interested & oblivious to you. Ski season is our busiest funnest season. We work & play hard, often passing out in our wet uniform to rise before the sun to catch the bus &do it all again. Please enjoy the solitude of your room if so. Consider it bonus if you get a word, beer, bong hit or pizza slice from them.
Please park where specifically asked to avoid pissing off neighbors. Keep dab rigs & use of that crap & incense in your own room. Tobacco products strictly prohibited. Shoes off at the door please. Please help sweep the foyer and vacuum the living room often, especially if you have a pet. Expect to sign a lease about this stuff upon arrival, especially if you are staying for more than a week.
LGBT, Pet and 420 friendly. (Lesbians, Gays, Bisexuals & Transgenders come and go freely. Also people of all races, religions, and class. Bigots prohibited. There may be cats, dogs, rats, snakes, Tigers, furries or other pets guests may bring. Allergies discouraged. People smoke pot in California and in this house. Tobacco strictly prohibited.) Please keep your pot, incense and paraphernalia in your own room. Keep your crumbs, resin, dust and wax out of the communal areas.
Please take your shoes off at door to save beige carpet. Please separate your trash and take it out on Wed. morning before 9a when you're around. Shoes off in house always. Quiet after 11p, unless playing piano & carrying on with other guests. In that case, party on all night. No overdrunkeness. Be considerate and mindful of all other guests and neighbors. Don't let the dogs out unless you are watching them closely. Don't let coyotes eat my dog. Please sort trash. No tampons or sanitary napkins, wet wipes in toilet. There is a paper sack under sink in bathroom for that stuff, or use kitchen trash. Kind consideration and tolerance of LGBT, pet and 420 friendly lifestyles.
No TVs or shoot em up video games. Shows or movies on small laptop in own room ok. Rpgs or other quiet puzzle video games like tetras, or indie "Ludum Dare" type or VR games ok in own room. But no loud shoot em ups, horror films or Cardashian type "reality" show watching or video games in routine. Certainly not in common areas of kitchen, living room or patio. I prefer to live with and host birds of same feather who choose books, board games, music, art, cooking, sharing, quiet or socializing over tv and video games.
If you have a dog: You must make arrangements for it to be let out, walked etc during the day while you work full time. No dog shall be cooped up for longer than 7 hrs at my place. Really, I'd prefer it be let out every 5 hrs min. That is simply humane. This is a communal guest home meant for pooling resources. Ask your housemates to help with your dog. Pay them if you must. Please offer to walk working housemates dogs. Charge $$ if you must.
Cleaning: Help with general house maintainance. Cleaning your own dish is not enough. Everyone puts wear and tear on the home by being there and using it. Please contribute to regular vacuuming, sweeping, countertop wiping, toilet cleaning, tub scrubbing, mantel dusting, snow shoveling, patio tarping etc. If you are paying weekly rates, you are expected to help keep the place in good order for ourselves and others. This means cleaning up after one another if need be, not going to bed leaving the place a shambles even if its not "your" mess. Take pride, responsibility and stewardship in "your" (our) home. Show a better proactive example of maturity & life experience to those younger or less fortunate of classy upbringing & problem solving skills rather than demoralized resignation and passive coping please. If you are the younger or less fortunate of life experience or class, please open your eyes and benefit from this opportunity of widened horizons. Take notice of the effects of your housemates' contributions and develop similar admirable helpful new habits to become more desirable guests and housemates to secure better housing options for yourself.
