SEASONED HOME & LOCATION To be clear although everyone who has come has enjoyed the home I want to point out that you should keep in mind that this a 100-Year-Old Authentic Early Rustic Log Cabin and NOT YOUR TYPICAL PRISTINE HOME. Hopefully you took that into account with the pictures I have online. What else that means is that this home was heated by a fireplace in the early years and still has a slight scent to it that has been baked into the woodwork and is part of its charm. Additionally it is on a fieldstone foundation that presents its own unique features. We are surrounded by woods and so seasonally we participate in the annual cycles of insects and wildlife. You will see deer especially frequently in our private yard. To be sure it is a wonderful experience but some in the past have arrived and not expected the unique seasoning of the home. I just want to make sure I manage expectations and be sure you understand what you are getting. I believe you will love it as much as we have... Additionally depending on the foliage cover you can sometimes hear the COMMERCIAL CEMENT BLENDING DISPENSARY which operates during business hours down over the hill but also serves to insulate us from any neighbors resulting in greater privacy. PETS: WE LOVE dogs but PETS MUST BE PRE-APPROVED a $50 flat rate per dog. Dogsitting about $25/day should be older than 18 months (due to house training) Should be under 50 pounds (we can talk)) TREATMENT: fleas & ticks (must be treated within 2 weeks of arrival) NOISE (barking that would disturb others and so we prefer you not leave the dog alone on the property) (we may be able to arrange a sitter if you need one) AGGRESSION: (strictly enforced) and general dirt (no pets on white bedding (pet stains are charged to Credit Card on file) and prompt pooper-scooper required).
