Atmosphere

Having mostly two guests dictates our feel
Our pairs of guests typically check in and then walk downtown
Guests don't tend to hang out much, possibly in the front yard from time to time
Guests commonly mention having the house to themselves
Which is good for sleeping, but may mean less social interaction than commonly found at other Hostels

Property


The house was built in 1916
Hardwood floors that are perpetually mopped
Sound can carry through the house so we accommodate for that
We sell sleep, so this reality has a lot to do with how we are set up
Every bedroom has an AC unit when it's hot out controlled by the guest.
Heat is centrally controlled, it's kept warm inside when it's cold out. Fans help with noise masking and keeping bathrooms dry

Kitchen

Shared simple kitchen for food storage and basic prep
Coffee, tea & pancake supplies provided
A small number of guests use it a lot, but most eat downtown
Let us know if you plan on cooking, & what will be needed
