What is your pet policy?
"Front rooms get street noise, but I do not know if the rooms farther back have private bathrooms."
"Probably upstairs in the back if you are able bodied"
"There is a main house with rooms and then motel style rooms on the outside"
"Worth paying for own bathroom."
"Just tell Juanita what you need, she will find the right room or rooms."
