Our charming Craftsman home was built in 1915 and is only one block north of historic San Pedro Springs Park. It has been lovingly updated to provide guests with a comfortable, convenient place from which to explore this vibrant city. Only minutes from the Riverwalk, Convention Center, the Pearl, access to I-35 and I-10, you are sure to be able to get wherever you're going quickly and easily. Popular local restaurants and other venues are also nearby.
Our guest room is a pleasant reminder of the Craftsman period, decorated for the casual comfort of our guests. There is a comfortable queen size bed complete with freshly washed linens and extra pillows. The room has an en suite for your convenience and privacy. That bathroom leads to a private shower garden that, during the season, many of our guests have come to truly enjoy. Additionally the room has a beautiful light filled studio with a large antique roll top desk. The room is perfect for reading or even working if our guests need. The studio also contains a day bed giving the space the ability to comfortably provide for three guests, or simply allows for additional space to enjoy and relax. Amenities in the space include a small refrigerator, a 32" TV with HBO, Amazon TV, and Netflix, a coffee maker, plenty of plush towels, some toiletry items, a stereo, a small chest of drawers, hanging space for clothes, and WiFi connection. Additionally, our guests are invited to enjoy the public space in the house, a delightful living room, a large dining room, and a gourmet kitchen. For guests who plan extended stays additional use of the kitchen is also invited, and for our travelers who need to do a load of laundry in the midst of their travels, they have access to our washer and dryer. In short, what we have tried to do is allow our guests an experience of a comfortable welcoming space, a home away from home while they enjoy this wonderful city.
Accès des voyageurs
Our guests are provided with keys that will give them easy access to our home. They are welcome to enter and leave through the front door of the house, but most of them find the convenience of their own private access to be preferable. They can come and go as early or late as they wish without feeling that they are disturbing the house in any way.
Échanges avec les voyageurs
We really try to let our guests take the lead on interaction. We love to meet our guests and learn about their world, but also realize that a lot of people come here to get away or to engage in other activities, and we want them to be able to do that. We're generally around and more than happy to interact and share information about the city, but if our guests want their space, we want them to have it, as well. Usually this all works out very well, and we realize each situation is an individual case. We also have two cats in the house and another that comes and goes, though we're very careful not to allow the cats access to the Guest Room. We've had people with allergies stay with us with no problem at all. We try to keep the room and the house very clean, and so far are pleased that it's worked out so well.
We don't allow smoking inside the house. There is a front porch where you are welcome to smoke if you care to.
I've been fortunate to have this wonderful old house for over fifteen years and I love to share it with others as they visit this dynamic city. I enjoy good food and good friends around the table and there's always room for a couple more. I love the opportunity to make new friends and celebrate diversity and tolerance in all life around me. When I'm not working on something for the house, I'm probably in the garden, and if I'm lucky enough to have caught up on my projects you'll likely find me on the screened-in porch with a good book. I also refurbish and sell antiques which you will find all around the house. I'll be retiring in 2016 which will allow me time to revive old passions, among them travelling and pottery. #HostWithPride
