Our beautiful home is shaped around a flagstone patio that looks out on a large koi pond and magnificently landscaped pathways winding through the property. The house has two bedrooms and two baths, a Viking gourmet kitchen with Travertine floors. Hot tub is located on deck outside of master bedroom and overlooks the koi pond. Property is on 5 acres that are completely fenced with a locked entrance gate
Our home is tastefully decorated with real wood furniture, marble kitchen counters, stainless steel appliances, thick carpets and glass shower doors. Because we are trying to keep our home as nice as possible we request no shoes in the carpeted areas, use of protective cutting boards for food prep in the kitchen, no cleaning, no scrubbing of stainless appliances with rough sponges and taking care not to scratch stove back splash while cooking, wiping shower doors after use, use of coasters and placemats when eating and drinking in the living room and gentle appropriate use of furnishings. We do allow dogs on a case by case basis. Owners must clean up after their pets ( bags are provided), wipe muddy paws (towels are provided) and provide a sleeping area ( dog bed preferably) for their pet. Owners must monitor their pet, not allow them to dig in the landscape or leave them unattended indoors or out. Smoking is allowed outdoors only. To stay at Middle Ridge Retreat you will need to sign and return a copy of our rental agreement and a Waiver of Liability prior to their visit. Each person staying must sign the waiver. Please allow time time for signing and returning these documents to us. We will email them to you. Scanning and returning by email is the fastest. We cannot accept same day bookings as there is inadequate time but we are happy to working with you for bookings that are less the 48 hours.
Retired Contractor who enjoys music, photography and training my border collies for sheepherding. I enjoy sharing my beautiful home as guests have been so appreciative of their stays. I created my home to be a place of relaxation and rejuvenation. So it is very nice to have that confirmation that our guests appreciate the experience of staying in my home. My style of hosting is to be vary available but allow my guests their privacy. I like to know the purpose of their stay (vacation, visiting friends, special occasion). I do allow dogs on a case by case basis. When making a reservation it is helpful to tell me about you and your dog if you want to bring him/her. My home is very high end so am looking for guests that will be respectful and careful and do not mind taking extra care ( no shoes in the house, wiping dogs feet, being careful with the marble counter tops) during their stay.
