First Floor, quiet neighborhood. Stay includes coffee/tea, house-keeping and extras. Kitchen privileges on case by case basis. Quaint renovated 1800's home. Babbling brook on premises. 4 miles from High Point State Park. Bathroom for your use only, just down the hall. Organic herbs and vegetables available seasonally. EIGHT friendly cats also share the house.

The space
The house was built circa 1862 according to my neighbor. The original was a post and beam barn and later, time unknown, a newer house was added to it. The house sits on approximately 1.67 acres, the rear portion being wooded. The property is bordered by a brook (frith in old English) which is usually quiet in summer, but babbles in rainy weather. I have noted frogs and tadpoles in it. I bought it in the summer of 2019 and soon moved into it with my cats but it needed a lot of renovation to make it livable. This continues now in early 2021 but it should soon be finished. It is already quite comfortable.

The house is in a small village just 4 miles south of High Point State Park. There are close neighbors who are quiet and friendly. Across the brook and a patch of woods, is the local fire house. There could be some noise of the engines coming and going but that is infrequent. I have not been awakened during the night by it although could be a rare possibility. There is daytime traffic on Rt. 23, a 2-lane country highway that runs past the house, but the house is well-insulated now, and has new windows. Bring ear plugs if you are abnormally sensitive to noise.
