Payment by cash, check or echeck is much appreciated (but not required).
There is no tax on stays of 31 nights of longer.

Once you are booked we send a detailed confirmation email that you should look over carefully. It includes driving directions and a legal waiver for using the bicycles. Your reply constitutes our agreement.

There are only two major house rules: That you understand that you are renting one of three apartments in a house and that this is a poor choice for loud partying. Reasonable consideration keeps it a peaceful refuge for everyone. The other rule is a strong one: absolutely no smoking in the house! Smoking outside is fine as long as it’s considerate of other guests who might be annoyed by the smoke and if nearby windows or doors (where smoke might drift into the interior) are shut. There is a $1000 charge for detectable cigarette smoke.
