Please Read The Entire Description Before Booking:
This is a 3 bedroom 2 and 1/2 bath house sits on U.S. Route 11 just south of Harrisonburg in the quaint village of Mount Crawford. Half bath is not usable at this time. The 3 bedrooms are upstairs as are the two full bathrooms. The master bedroom does have an floor model A/C unit as well as a king size bed. The other two bedrooms each have queen size beds currently although one of the bedrooms is large enough that we may add another queen size bed to it at some point.
There will be a charge of $30 an hour for guests arriving more than 30 minutes later than the arrival time that they give us on the day of arrival. Arrival times must be sent in the message thread upon booking.
One of the bedrooms upstairs and one of the bathrooms upstairs require you to walk through the other bedroom to access them (we will be changing this at some point).
There is a living room in the front of the house and then a dining room and a full kitchen. The living room has a couch with a queen size pull out bed. In the kitchen there are 4 stools at the bar in the kitchen. There are numerous plans we have to remodel the house in the coming years, but we are going to be renting it as is for now with lower rates until we make the improvements. To get to one of the upstairs bathrooms you have to walk through one of the bedrooms. There is another full bathroom upstairs in the back part of the house (there use to be two sets of stairs to access the upstairs, but now the second set of stairs only goes to the second full bathroom, which is very different to say the least). This is one of the things we'll be changing when we remodel. :) The kitchen is also a little unusual in that it has two sinks and one is set off in a corner (we'll be removing one of the sinks here shortly and making that area a breakfast nook).
There is heat upstairs, but no central a/c/heat upstairs. There is central a/c and central heat downstairs though and the master bedroom currently has a floor model A/C and heater unit which keeps it nice cool/warm in there. The upstairs has base-board heat in the two other rooms and one room has a small heater which keep it plenty warm. The lights in the master bedroom currently aren't working. We are working on getting them fixed.
There is also a sun porch (which we will replace all of the windows in to allow a breeze come through) and a medium size back yard for the kids to play. We own the land directly behind this house which gives you access to the North River for fishing or for tuning, canoeing or kayaking (tubes, canoes and kayaks not provided). The house does sit right on U.S. Route 11 in the front, but there is plenty of off street parking (for up to 5 cars). There is a fire pit available upon request. We require that all firewood be purchased upon arrival.
The house currently sleeps 9 in beds if you count the pull out couch. The maximum occupancy is 12, but several of those would need to be kids.
This house is located in a neighborhood in the quiet little town of Mt. Crawford and quiet hours must be respected between 9 pm and 9 am.
Beloved pets are welcome, but we do require a Pet Fee per pet. Multiple pets are welcome so those with more than one pet are welcome to stay.
Because this is an older house, there are things you should expect to find in a really old house such as spider webs (we clean them for every guest but they do reappear quickly sometimes), ladybugs, ants, critters, flies, insects or stink bugs during certain times of the year. In all honesty, many of these can be found in every house in America... but we are just stating the obvious. There will no refund of any kind should any of these be present during your stay (please do let us know though so that we may take appropriate action should any of these be found).
