  • Guests are not permitted upstairs, as this is the owner's private residence. The kitchen is also restricted due to the COVID-19 virus.

  • There is a TV, mini-fridge, a microwave, iron and ironing board in the guest room.

  • The owner splits her time between New York and PA. She is there about 60% of the time and never knows when she will be present. As a consequence, some guests will have completely private stays and some will not (unless a private stay is booked).

  • The owner has a cat, Tarot, who is curious but not a lap cat. Tarot prefers to be left alone and usually does not socialize with guests often. She spends most of her time upstairs and is also easily scared!

  • The room rate includes 2 persons. Each additional is $20 per night, per person. Extra person charge will be made via an emailed invoice and must be paid in advance online (payments accepted via credit card, debit, or Paypal).
