Interaction with guests
I have a new queen size air bed that can be set up in the room to sleep up to four people. I'll ask another $20 per night for each guest beyond the first two. I might ask an extra fee for dogs and cats and other pets that call for extra cleaning. I live upstairs so I'm readily available to help answer questions and assist with your needs. Lee, my roommate upstairs, is also available for help. He's an IT specialist.

Thanks for the great review. It was a pleasure to host you. Melchior and I enjoyed our evening walks over to the peninsula to visit the llamas and miniature donkeys (and I'm sure they enjoyed the visits and the grass Jeff pulled to feed them)....More
