There are three bedrooms, all on the second floor. Two have queen size beds. The third bedroom has a full-size bed. The master bedroom also has a comfortable sitting area with a settee and chair. All bedrooms have ceiling fans & seriously luxurious bedding.
The upstairs full bathroom features a 2-person Jacuzzi and two skylights. The downstairs full bathroom has an oversize tiled mosaic shower and a double vanity. Plush towels, bathrobes and soaps are provided.
The kitchen is fully equipped with a new electric range, full-size refrigerator, dishwasher, microwave and garbage disposal. Dishes, pots and pans, silverware, etc. are all provided. The pantry will be empty upon your arrival except for coffee (both drip and Keurig) and tea and spices. So bring any groceries you might want, or shop at a nearby grocery. There is also an outdoor gas barbecue grill.
The vaulted ceiling is light-filled and airy, boasting a stone hearth at one end and a wall of windows at the other. Here you will find a couple hundred books: some a century old, others as new as the most recent best-sellet. Some of the books were written by authors staying at Maple Wood Lodge. Also board games and a t-v with DVD player and DirecTV. We stock a few dozen movies, but you can always bring your own. A dining room table with six chairs is also in the great room.
This may become your favorite room. Light floods into this room and a nook with two bent-wood chairs provide a sweet spot for reading, conversation or gazing into the hummingbird garden. There's a desk and a lot of open space, perfect for kids to play or for just hanging out.
