  • The shingles of Guest House are an interesting grey that looks blue in some light and brown in another. We love the lemon yellow of the door and the red roof!

  • The second bedroom is as comfortable as the master, with cool breezes at night thanks to the cross ventilation windows and an overhead fan. Plush bedding makes for a great night sleep. Cool art and posters warm up the room, making for a pleasant stay.

  • The porch overlooks a backyard where you can relax. We planted maples and crabapple trees, arbor vitae, and other greenery, such as lilacs and raspberries. The birds love the backyard.

  • The screened-in porch is cozy--great place to have coffee in the cool mornings, or to be out of the sun, but still outside. The screen does its job well, the bugs won't bother you!
