You'll enjoy a super comfortable guest room upstairs on the second floor with a full size bed, four pillows, down comforter, flannel sheets in the spring, fall and winter and cool cotton sheets in the summer. There is a closet, shelving and wall hooks for your belongings. It's a pretty quiet neighborhood but a small fan is also provided, mostly because I personally can't sleep without one and bring my own everywhere so I want to offer my guests the same white-noise option.
The bathroom is shared. Towels are provided but please bring your own shampoo, soap, etc. Being an independent traveler makes me a fairly hands-off host, meaning your independence and privacy are greatly respected and I hope you'll do the same. I'm a photographer and social media manager for our local police K9 units, so criminals will want to stay elsewhere. :) I often work from home. I'm pretty quiet both day and night, and expect the same from those who stay here. You're welcome to use the kitchen's refrigerator to store food and the microwave, but no cooking allowed. A load of laundry may be done if you stay here more than a few days.
You should know right away that staying here means sharing space with a lovable, social, exuberant, nutball of a dog named Ramona. She LOVES having guests, humans and dogs alike, so if you're traveling with a friendly, well-behaved canine companion, s/he is most likely welcome here too. Just ask! (Also, please remember to pick up after him/her.)
Other amenities include wireless internet, easy street or driveway parking, a fenced backyard, 1/2 block from the bus stop and two minutes from I-90.
I absolutely love my house and neighborhood and bet you will too. Enjoy Spokane and happy travels!
My home is smoke-free and alcohol-free, meaning no alcohol or drugs (including marijuana) allowed in the house. Although I go out of my way to be quiet when I have guests, you are free to keep whatever hours you like. By all means, have a good time! For unseasoned travelers, just please be respectful that this is my home and not a hotel.
Also, I have two very friendly and social dogs who love having guests. Turns out not all guests like dogs. Inconceivable, but true. If you fall in that category, our home isn't the right accommodation for you.
