THE SPACE: (Scroll to the bottom to read about discounts, long term stays, etc.)
We have been Airbnb guests as well as hosts, so we believe that providing a lot of information will help you determine if our place is a good fit for your needs. Your private sanctuary consists of two bedrooms and one bath, plus a mini-kitchen. No one outside of you or you and your co-traveler will be sharing the guest suite space. See floor plan in "photos". NOTE: SURRY POWER PLANT WORKERS, PLEASE SEND AN INQUIRY ABOUT SPECIAL RATES. WE ARE LOOKING TO HOST TWO WORKERS FOR THIS FALL'S OUTAGE. DATES: OCTOBER 19 TO NOV 17 2019. ALL OTHERS WANTING TO STAY AT TURTLE COVE DURING THIS TIME: WE ARE SAVING THESE DATES FOR POWER PLANT WORKERS.
Our place works best for a solitary traveler on business or personal trip, two friends, relatives, or colleagues here for a conference, work, or touring; a couple who prefers to or don't mind sleeping in separate bedrooms (snoring? sleep issues?), etc. Business travelers can sleep in one room and set up an "office" in the other bedroom. We host one person per bedroom BUT YOU or YOU AND YOUR CO-TRAVELER are the ONLY guests in the suite. Because of the layout of the rooms, we may not be the best fit for a couple desiring a romantic getaway.
Our guest suite is well appointed so that if you don't want to come downstairs, you won't have to -- although you are very welcome, like many of our guests, to use and enjoy the space, which includes the living room, kitchen, and dining area, and back porch.
For additional privacy, a portable screen is available at the top of the stairs.
There is a Roku TV in each bedroom providing you with a large selection of movies on Amazon Prime, TV shows, including Hulu, and even live Spectrum TV.
Each room has a comfortable twin size bed (with pillow top mattress or mattress topper) and a chair with ottoman or footstool for relaxing, reading, or watching TV.
Each bedroom also has it's own aroma therapy diffuser, with therapeutic grade lavender essential oil to help you relax and enjoy a good night's sleep -- or nap. A sound machine is in each bedroom for those who prefer white noise for sleeping at night or when taking a nap. The Chesapeake Room has room darkening shades.
There is a "mini-kitchen" just off the Chesapeake Room. It contains a K-cup coffee maker, toaster, ice-machine, microwave, and mini-fridge, plus a variety of cups, dishes, utensils, etc. and storage space for your foods, and to make snack or light meal prep convenient. If you prefer, you can use the downstairs kitchen for preparing your breakfast, or other meal.
You will find breakfast items to make a breakfast of eggs, toast, juice, coffee, tea, instant oatmeal or cereal, and fruit in the downstairs kitchen. You may bring your own dairy items to store in the frig. (We provide non-dairy "milk and butter".) You are invited to eat in the dining area or, if the weather permits, on the back porch or patio.
The downstairs kitchen has filtered water (Berkey), which you can use in the ice machine upstairs, as well as for drinking . You are welcome to use the Keurig, one shelf in the frig, the stove top, and toaster in the downstairs kitchen if you would like.
A full bathroom with tub/shower is located between the two bedrooms. It contains a "chair height" new toilet. This private bathroom is for you or you and your co-traveler only. Enjoy a shower, or a bath with fragrant bath salts, before relaxing by reading a book in one of the comfy chairs, or watching TV.
An iron and ironing board is located in the closet in the Garden room. An electric floor fan is available in the Garden Room closet for those who enjoy turning on a fan at night.
A zoned central AC and heating system allows you control the temperature in the guest suite to your liking.
When the weather is comfortable, our guests often enjoy the screened-in back porch for conversation, eating (on trays), rocking, reading, relaxing, or taking a nap in the hammock while listening to the sounds of water cascading in the fountain. A ceiling fan helps to keep the breezes going. If you like to eat outside, there is a bistro type table for two on the patio. Because we have the property sprayed with a natural susbstance very three weeks, you will be hard pressed to find a mosquito (or tick), so you can actually enjoy being outside! You might even see a heron or a crane going fishing or frogging for its meal. Ducks and geese love this end of the lake, and a three member otter family or a beaver or two also swim and fish from time to time. If you take a look at the log in the lake on a warm day, you will know why we have named our home "Turtle Cove"!
