Creekside patio, small cottage deck and use of our barbeque.
I have received feedback that the steepness of access is "not suitable for older people". I think this depends on one's level of fitness since, as a senior myself, I have no problem taking stairs or carrying a suitcase where it cannot be rolled. However, this is something that I want to acknowledge so that guests have no surprises so I would ask that potential guests review the photos which show 12 rock stairs into the back yard, the steep driveway and the additional steps up to the little verandah. It is definitely not a spot for people with mobility issues or huge suitcases or coolers!

As little or as much as the guest wishes.
Your will have breakfast in the privacy of the cottage - your fridge will be stocked with yogurt, muffins, milk and cereal and you can make coffee or tea. I don't enter the cottage once you have checked in but will offer fresh towels every other day.
As mentioned above, NON SMOKING guests only, thank you.

Non-dog owners can be assured that I use separate bed linens and on the slate floor I use mats not used by dog owners. Cleanliness and the absence of dog hair is very important to me and to you too, I'm sure!
We have also been honey bee keepers, whenever the honey bees decide to grace us with their presence. At the moment the bees are away.
All cottage windows are fully screened for your bug free sleeping pleasure. A fan is available for your use for warm nights.
NON SMOKING guests only, thank you.
I will allow a dog, providing it is well behaved, quiet and friendly (especially with my dog); they do not chew furniture or bedding, and owners pick up all droppings. Please do not leave your dog(s) alone in the cottage.
Sorry, no cats, out of respect to many people who have allergies to cats.
