Enjoy complete privacy and 500+ square feet of living space in our ground floor suite.
There is one king bed, one queen bed, a comfy sectional couch and two toddler airbeds. There is a small kitchenette for simple cooking and an alfresco BBQ patio for bigger cooking. There is plenty of living space both indoors and out.
This is really a nice, cozy apartment - with ample living space!
Pull into a private garage that is attached to your suite. There is a full sized refrigerator in the garage you may use.
From the garage you enter a serene sun room flooded with bright, natural light. This room is perfect for reading or to enjoy a glass of wine and a quiet chat. The radiant floors are super cozy on your feet during the winter, and year round you can enjoy the great view of the woods.
Take a left through french doors into your living room, and stretch out on the large sectional sofa and enjoy a program on the big screen cable TV. Order take out and sit down at your 4 person dining table.
We have installed a new kitchenette in this suite, with Keurig coffee service, toaster oven, microwave, mini-fridge and electric griddle (great to make pancakes or grilled cheese sandwiches). There is no stove in the suite. Big cooking is done outside on a good quality gas BBQ grill with side burner; it is for the exclusive use of our guests, and is directly outside your suite, on an alfresco patio with picnic table.
The bedroom has a roomy closet and a king bed. The bed can remain a king or can be separated into twins.
There is a queen size Murphy bed (wall bed) in the main living room. It can be pulled down as needed. It has a comfortable 10 inch foam mattress with topper. We have two blow up toddler beds (with bedding) that can be placed on the floor, if needed. There are black out curtains for the comfort of those sleeping in the living room.
All bed linens are 300 thread count Egyptian cotton.
The three piece bathroom has a shower. We have lots of complimentary toiletries to use, if you forget something.
Directly outside the sunroom, just steps away, is a large in-ground pool to enjoy from Memorial Day thru Labor Day. The pool is gated for the safety of small children. If you want to take a snooze or read a book and listen to the birds, there is a hammock nestled between two shade trees on the side of the house. There are two swings for the kids. We also have lawn games for the family to enjoy: soccer balls, a croquet set, Frisbee and boccie ball.
On cool evenings you may come up to our family deck and enjoy a nice fire in the outdoor fireplace, any season of the year. Just ask!

Hello! We are the Laleman's. We are a tight knit family of four. My husband (Aster) and I in our early fifties...married for 30 years. Life is good! Elizabeth and Katelyn are both graduated from college and are beginning their careers. Our dog, a friendly little Maltese, named Lexa, completes our family portrait.
We enjoy food, entertaining and travel. We like visiting and meeting people from interesting locales and different cultures. We really enjoy opening the ground floor of our home to visitors. Jokingly, we have always said we should hang a vacancy sign on the house. We've had many guests stay with us over the years; so being an Airbnb host family feels natural to us.
We have family in Europe and across the United States. Over the years, we've had 14 nannies and au pairs live with us, all hailing from different parts of the country and the world. Our family has been deeply enriched by the warmth and generosity of these young women. We've also hosted four Chinese teenage boys, who came to town on an educational and cultural exchange.
Retirement is a concept that we're beginning to think about, well, 10 or 15 years in advance. Hey, at least we're being proactive! We're considering where we may want to retire to when we're older. Our plan is to travel, enjoying other Airbnb families and properties to explore prospective communities where we may want to live in the coming years.
We understand that you are trusting us to either provide you with a comfortable and welcoming place to stay, or with your home, if we are a guest of yours. We will do our best to honor either situation.
We look forward to meeting you!
Marybeth and Aster
