This has been or family Home and Design Studio for the last twenty years.
The peace and quite and surrounding Nature provides an inspirational setting for raising our children and working in our design business.
Currently, in efforts to stave off an adverse situation and reclaim Life, we are welcoming AirBnB guests. As such, for this phase, we are happy to share many of the amenities and idiosyncrasies of this place we love.
The Studio Space: a private 15' by 28' former design Studio is attached to the main house through a hallway. It has it's own separate entrance, (10' patio door / window) and full bathroom, (shower only). Separate climate controls for a separate heating zone and AC. The home has three heating zones with three thermostats, supplemented by two fireplaces.
Downstairs Studio in the Forest space sleeps 4 in Full bed and Futon couch that opens up to Queen size bed. Facing East in Studio is the 10foot patio window/door offering great views, any season, anytime of day and lovely to wake up to.
Downstairs also is second bedroom in Main house available with two single beds and private half bath. This is usually used by add'l family, children or guests wishing a separate bedroom and half bath. This is associated with the Studio in the Forest Listing.
These two spaces are in separate, opposite wings of the home.
Please view the AirBnB website opening photo: Studio, green shakeshingled addition on far left, second bedroom in Main house brick wing on far right.

Upstairs rooms share a full bath. Upstairs is not fully finished fixups, but can accommodate up to 7 add'l people. See photos.
Use of upstairs is add'l $50/night booking. This add'l cost accounts for expanded group entire home impact. This balance payable either by adjusted AirBnB billing or upon arrival; (due to limitations on the AirBnB booking site, only half of the $50 add'l guest is accounted).
Simply, with a group requiring entire home, Studio, Main house, downstairs and Upstairs, the price adjusts accordingly. The AirBnB automatic calculator does not account for this variable. Please inquire for accurate pricing to establish an Entire Home rate.
Also, note with groups the impact and imposition of the neighbor's that share our private 1/2 mile road is greater. Please share your plans.
This is important to note:
This a tranquil retreat in the Nature to be enjoyed. Not a party house.
Please inform Host about any planned gathering, events or parties that include add'l Guests not booked staying overnight.
The single lane private road shared with neighbors also shares traffic annoyances. Important for all to be considerate of the number of cars and traffic. Thank you.

I grew up in Finland and studied and worked in Sweden and Norway. After a few years in Paris I finished my studies at the Basel School of Design in Switzerland where I met my husband, Douglas (from CT, USA). We have lived here for 30 years now, raised two sons and enjoyed our design business. We love to travel, meet people and we recently added the last continent of South America to our list this spring. Art, culture and nature are things we enjoy and traveling with AirBnb has allowed us to get closer to the authentic experiences we like.
