The Loft

Featuring 2 extra-long twin beds and a large seating area, our spacious loft has room for airbeds to accommodate up to 5 guests on the finished 3rd of our home. Because it has no private bath, it is available only to parties who reserve at least one other room in the house. We usually make it available to parents traveling with older children (age 10 and up), so that the children have a space of their own in the Loft on the 3rd floor, and parents have privacy in a room of their own on the 1st or 2nd floors. Children staying in a the loft share their parents' bath. Add $20 per night per child staying in the Loft to the price of their parents' room.
