Breakfast, lunch and dinner are available for an extra fee, just ask me and I will send you the menus!! The studio apartment is on 1.5 acres of wooded area with everything except a kitchen. The room is above a detached garage & independent of the main house so if you have to come & go at various times of the day you will not bother the owner. We also have DISH TV, a DVD player, movies & multiple games and toys for the little ones. Wifi & internet are also available.
The host is a retired chef and is offering a breakfast, lunch and dinner option for an extra charge. If you'd like to see the menus please feel free to ask and they will be sent to you! Prices start at $7 (breakfast), $9 (lunch) and $13 (dinner) with an a la cart menu to pick from.
We are not extensive travelers and usually plan out our vacations well in advance so coming back to our little neck of the woods over and over is entirely possible!!
A microwave, toaster, coffee maker (Keurig bring your favorite K cup or use our reusable filter and enjoy the complimentary coffee) and a small refrigerator to keep the all important wine and beer (or anything else) cool while in the unit.
A DVD player with 68 movie choices (many of them kid friendly) are available for your use. Dish TV with HBO, Showtime, Cinemax, Starz, Epix, and several On Demand and Sports channels are part of the package. We have added a USB charging station to keep your electronic toys powered up!!
There is no smoking in the apartment but there is a small balcony (not screened in) for your enjoyment and also is the only place that smokers can smoke, please don't smoke in the apartment.
You are given a key to your space so your privacy is assured.
We also have a hot tub for your use as well as a gas grill if you want to cook some steaks, hamburgers, etc. while you are here.
A California King bed, a queen sized sofa bed are immediately available for your use. If there are more than 4 of you and you require additional sleeping accommodations we have two queen sized air mattresses, and one single air mattresses that can be set up to help you out, but, space is limited when all of the extra mattresses are being used. In the closet next to the bed is an iron for your use.
Mini shampoo, hand soap, body wash, toothpaste, extra toothbrushes, dental floss and travel Kleenex are available in the bathroom in case you forgot yours when you get here. A hair dryer is also available and under the sink in the bathroom.
There is an air conditioner, and a separate ceramic space heater for your comfort (you control both).
We get very little traffic around our house. Only locals use the road that goes by us so it is very quite out here. On the turn on to Holly Berry Drive you will see a "Dead End" sign just ignore it as you are on the right path to our little slice of heaven. Also if you can, try to get here in the daylight, if possible. It is easier to find the house but we do have the house number well marked and we also have a street light at the entrance to our driveway so seeing the sign that we put in the pictures is entirely possible day or night.
For those of you that use a GPS to locate places our Geo Position is (PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN) Latitude (35 deg 0' 49.70' deg N) by -(PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN) deg 4' 12.05' W)
Servicios y zonas comunes
There are paved road all the way except for the last seven tenths of your journey
There are 18 steps up to the studio, so those with bad legs, backs or other problems may want to think hard about being up at 1,977 feet above sea level and adding another 18 feet, lol.
When you get here just pull right up to the front of the garage (we don't have a car in it) and park there. We suggest that you pull into the parking area in the front of the house and back into the space in front of the garage to make it easier to unload any luggage, food and kids as well as leaving the property. Guests have access to the 3 person hot tub (will fit 4 but not comfortably) and towels for the hot tub are in the screened in porch on the way to the hot tub that is on our deck. We keep the blinds closed in the house while you are here for your privacy while you are in the hot tub.
We also have a gas barbecue grill in our screened in porch that is attached to the main house that you may use.
There is an additional key outside the door to the apartment inside a lock box in case you loose the one that we give you. Let us know if you have lost it so we can make a duplicate.
Atención a los huéspedes
Guests are free to interact with us on an as needed basis or call on the home or cell phone numbers if we are not available. Ring the front doorbell or the back doorbell in the screened in porch anytime you need us, no matter the time. Jean usually stays up late and John is usually up very early (old military habits die hard).

The owner is a retired Chef so Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner is an extra charge on a per person basis if you would like it. We will send you a menu of choices to pick from for each upon request and a price listing for each meal. Meal selections must be made from the menus 24 hours prior to arrival. This gives the chef time to buy the freshest ingredients and prepare for your culinary delights.
