I am only steps away if I can be of any help during your stay. I will also provide printed mapquest directions to any place you would like to go. I am willing to share my garden seating area, but you will have to meet my dog first. She never goes out unsupervised, and this is a seperate fenced area away from your rental. She is friendly once I have introduced her. I've included her picture below. She, nor any other pet has ever been in the rental unit, I keep that a pet-free zone for people with allergies.
