Please NOTE: I am a nurse and also in a higher risk category for Covid 19 impact on my health. I am keeping up with the updates, from several sources, on this virus. For now, I am not honoring instant book, even though it is "on" (because of the effect on listing placement per Airbnb algorhythms,) without direct communication with the potential guest. While I use sterilization tools, like UV light and ozone, to help deactivate germs and viruses, both guests and I need to feel comfortable with the risks involved. PLEASE send an inquiry before booking. Just click on "contact host" and let me know the dates you want to stay, the reason you will be in the area, who (if anyone) will be coming with you, and from where you will be traveling (I can not accommodate anyone who has traveled by plane, bus, train, or ship in the past 30 days until this virus has abated). Ask any questions you have for me. We'll take it from there so that we both feel the risk of infection is minimized. Thank you.

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.
For additional privacy, just place the provided screen at the top of the stairs. SEE FLOOR PLAN IN PHOTOS.
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. Because of the layout of the furniture, 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 to use and enjoy the space -- living room, kitchen, dining area, and back porch.
Each Bedroom: Comfortable twin bed, with pillow top or mattress topper; essential oil diffuser, sound machine, reading chair with ottoman/footstool, desk with chair, TV .
(Roku, Hulu, Amazon Video, live TV, other apps).

Chesapeake Room: room darkening shades, mini-kitchen: mini-fridge, ice machine, microwave, toaster, K-cup coffee maker, dishes, utensils, etc.
Bathroom: Full bath, chair height toilet, shelf space for your toiletries. Soap, bath gel, shampoo, conditioner, hair dryer, towels, wash clothes and hand towels are provided. Extra items in closet (in case you forget to bring something).
Thermostat located in upstairs hallway for comfort control.
You will find breakfast items to make a breakfast of eggs, toast, juice, coffee, tea, oatmeal or cereal, and fruit in the downstairs kitchen. Regular half and half and non-dairy milk are in the frig. IRS regs won't allow us to prepare breakfast for you, unless we pay additional taxes, which would cause us to charge a higher rate BUT you can "raid our fridge and kitchen" at no extra charge and make your own.
The downstairs kitchen has filtered water, 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.
When the weather is comfortable, our guests often enjoy the screened-in back porch and deck for conversation, eating, rocking, reading, relaxing, or taking a nap in the hammock. A ceiling fan helps to keep the breezes going. If you like to eat outside, there is a bistro type table for two. Because we have the property sprayed with a natural substance every three weeks, you will be hard pressed to find a mosquito 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"!
We have a 12 pound terrier named "Bizzy" who enjoys being petted once she gets to know you. She is not allowed upstairs in the guest suite.

Even though we live in a small community, it offers several places to eat. In addition to fast food places, close by is one of the best Japanese restaurants one of the best barbecue places and one of the best Italian restaurants (the chef is from Naples), in Hampton Roads. A Mexican restaurant, and a seafood restaurant offer good food. Urgent care, a grocery store, drug store, and gas stations are about 5 to 10 minutes away. More shopping and restaurants are located within a 15 minute drive.
