This is a very comfortable small house with a large yard on its own private lot. My wife and I live next door. The yard has fruit and nut trees, hedges, and low rock walls. We are close to Fairhaven and Western Washington University. This is is a gem of a house with a seating area on the wrap around porch, all wood floors, high ceilings, open floor plan, queen bed, large couch, breakfast area, kitchen bay window, baseboard electric heat, laundry area in half finished basement, WiFi, and Roku.
It is a lovely one bedroom house, about 800 sq. ft, that has been rented pretty much continuously for the past 20 years when I built it. Everyone who has ever lived here has loved the place. I recently had the opportunity to remodel and landscape, and the house is now a furnished vacation rental. The yard has mature plum, apple, pear, and fig trees, laurel hedges, wood fencing, and low rock walls, with seating areas and a hammock. Deer wander in and out the yard. The house is welcoming and inviting with its high ceilings and open floor plan. It is well insulated and stays quiet, and is cool on hot days, and keeps in the warmth a long time.
Disponible para huéspedes
The entire yard and house is available to guests, very private. The house has its own parking area near a small studio outbuilding. A gravel path leads up to the house.

My wife and I occasionally do dog sitting at our home next door for friends and neighbors. We have a large, fully fenced yard, and only take in a few small dogs at a time, some for the day, some overnight, and some for folks on vacation - only small dogs that have been vetted by us with a Meet and Greet. This means that there might be some barking heard next door when people arrive and pick up their dogs. The rental house is very well insulated, and there is a tall wood fence with two gates, an alley, our parking area, and a laurel hedge between our house and the Orchard Cottage Guest House, so the noise is minimal.
- Check-In time is from 2:00 pm to 9:00 pm. Check out time is 11:00 am. We would consider well behaved small dogs that stay with their people and are not left alone in the house or allowed to roam the yard. The dogs need to be house broken and be with their person at all times.
