Interaction with guests
We will try to help with questions and spend some time, if they desire, before they set out for the day/evening. Our house is next to the garage apartment. One of us is usually around being retired. We are not out early morning or late evenings thus being available.
Other things to note

Please respect this apartment and our rules. We try to be flexible for our guests. Please no pets - please don't ask. It creates a problem if our next guests have allergies. Our pet NEVER enters this space out of respect for those who may have allergies. There is a boot tray just inside the door for your shoes as you enter.
No smoking on the property. This is a smoke free zone. Our expectation are that you treat this apartment with the same respect as your home.
We are empty nesters living in a lovely home in the Upper Valley of the Dartmouth College area. We are both active and involved with the community. There are many, many attractions and restaurants in the area. We love being in an area where one feels at one with the outdoors. We have a brook that intersects our property with a gazebo overlooking it being a lovely spot to read, bird watch, enjoy the tranquility. Yet the interstate is within 5 min. So even though we are in a very quiet area, attractions and stores are quickly within reach. We can easily direct one to the many attractions in the immediate and surrounding areas from hot air balloons, hiking the Appalachian trail or shopping in tax-free N.H.
