So long as you let us know about your dietary needs before breakfast, we should be able to accomodate you within reason.

Due to allergies, we do not allow pets.

Are you child friendly?
Yes, of course! However, we do not provide cribs or toddler-sized mattresses.

What's the bathroom situation?
Every room in the house has a bathroom, and every bathroom has a toilet, sink, and tub shower except for the Attic Hideaway, which has a toilet, vanity, large stand up shower and stand alone soaking tub.

Just how private are the rooms?
You could be partying in the Attic Hideaway and we would have no idea. We used a mixture of fiberglass and denim insulation in the rooms, as well as blackout curtains to cover the windows, it's your own little world in there. No interior wall is shared with another bedroom and every room has it's own passcode lock.
