Nice location, approx. block and a half from town. The home was Full of antiques and collectibles, very cool and interesting. We all agreed the beds were very comfortable. We pretty much lived in the outdoor kitchen, there was everything you needed.( temps in the 90's, a ceiling fan would of made it more than perfect!). Many extras throughout, the kitchen was loaded! If you forgot something, Peggy probably had it. Approx. an hour from the eastern entrance, the scenery made it a short trip. Thanks Peggy, from us four, almost seniors.

She's a Grand Old House - Be Gentle
Because it has taken me 15 years to slowly bring back most of the home's historical presence, it is important to me that you treat the house and it's furnishings as I do everyday....with a gentle hand. Slamming doors is frowned upon. There are drink coasters everywhere please use them.
Do not leave wet towels on the wood floor or furniture, you will find hooks and hangers in every room or closet. Our white bath towels are for your bathing, not for cleaning your horse, hog or auto. Walgreens or the Dollar Store has great Microsoft towels for purchase. There are cleaning rags under the kitchen sink. There is a bucket and bike wash under the stairs outside. There is both HOT/COLD water available on the alley side of the house.
Fire Pit/Gas Grill
You can buy packages of split logs at Albertsons or The Maverick C-Store on Big Horn Ave. Please keep your fires small and make sure to use the water hose and put the fire out completely before going to bed. Do not leave the fire burning and leave the property. Since the house is entirely "made of wood", we don't use flame burning candles or the interior fireplace. There is a fire extinguisher in the kitchen for emergencies.
Walgreens has some groceries and is walking distance from the house, 2 blocks East on Rumsey Ave. on Big Horn Ave. If you find the Gas Grill is out of propane, you can take the bottle and have it filled at the local Exxon Gas Station down town for $15. They are open until 8 pm.
Media Room & Library
The Media room is downstairs. You will find tapes, videos, PlayStation2 console/games in the wood buffet against the wall. The library upstairs is my personal collection, please feel free to browse and read but return the books when you leave. The artwork and collectibles are my personal passion over a 20 year period, please do not move art around or take souvenirs as you will be charged. There is plenty of that for purchase at one of our downtown retailers.
Again, this is an old house and has old plumbing. Only use the washer when no one is using any of the showers. Do not leave the property during a wash cycle as we have had the sewer back up on occasion. If this happens turn the washer OFF immediately and call ((PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN).
If the toilet backs up, shut the water off below the stool and call ((PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN). The toilet in the lower level is a very expensive toilet. It has an electrical pump inside. Please do not flush anything but POO & PEE or it will cost you lots of MONEE to fix.
Please turn off all the lights as well as the AIR CONDITIONING when you leave the house. You can leave the ceiling fan on in the main room just to keep the air circulating. There are small fans in the CABIN QUEEN bedroom closet.
When using curling irons and blow dryers, do NOT plug them into to old looking outlets (dark brown), they will not support the wattage. Use the NEW outlets (white) near the bathroom sinks or the black power strips in the bedrooms. Please make sure to unplug your curling irons after use or before leaving the house. If for some reason you trip the breaker, you will find the breaker box at the top of the stairs to the lower level.
If a storm knocks out the power, there are battery back up flashlights located in the main level bathroom, kitchen and in some bedrooms.
Please do not park any motor vehicles on the lawn, it will kill the grass. The sprinklers are set to come on automatically TUE-THURS-SAT. Do NOT unplug the timer or it will loose it's settings and there will be a fee to reset. If you move the lounge chairs on the grass be advised they will get wet from the sprinkler system, please move them pack to the patio so they do not rust.
We have had more storms than usual this last few years. The hail, wind and rain can cause the antenna to loose connection with the TV. So, if you find you have no channels make sure of the following:
INPUT - should be set to TV
NO SIGNAL - go to menu and do an "auto scan", when finished it should show 6 DIGITAL CHANNELS found.
If the remote is still not working, check the batteries. If it still does not work then it has lost communication with the TV, use the TV buttons direct on the TV and leave a note for the housekeeper.
We have the pleasure of regular visits from the growing population of "town" deer. They like to visit in the morning, afternoon and at dusk. Don't be surprised if you run into them in the yard. "Dutch" is my Australian Sheppard dog. She is 16 years old, friendly but partially deaf and very retired. If you see her in the yard approach SLOWLY. "Calamity Jane" is the neighbors cat however she spends her days roaming around the neighborhood and napping on my furniture. She is very friendly and likes to be petted. We mow and clean up the yard on the weekends (usually) weather dependent. Once in awhile the neighborhood dogs and deer will make deposits in my yard...fair warning.
Please be careful walking off the porch into the alley. We do have some neighbors that speed down the alley. Make sure the kids do not PLAY in the alley, it is HIGHLY not recommended.
Parties & Unregistered Guests
Unregistered guests are not allowed on the property. Private parties must be approved by the property manager PRIOR to the event. Additional charges may apply. This is a quite neighborhood and you need to respect the neighbors around you. Outdoor music must be kept at a reasonable volume and shut completly off after 9 pm.
Leave it as you found it
When you leave, please make sure to turn down linens on beds used, please leave them ON THE BED, not on the floor. You can leave the wet towels in the bathtub/shower or on the bathroom hooks. Wash dirty dishes and put them back where you found them as best you can. Bag up all garbage and put it in the dumpster just outside the kitchen in the alley. If you have moved furniture around put it back where you found it when you arrived the best you can.
Again, I hope you enjoy your stay, if you need anything please call
((PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN) and welcome to Cody, Wyoming!!
