Enjoy a unique, colorful, whimsical home on a private, forested 3/4acre. Within close walking distance to Sandpiper beach and spectacular sunsets. Arthurs’ Court is also close to the Farmers’ Market, the Community Hall, Ford’s Cove marina and store. Most special is that we are very close to where the Mt. Geoffrey’s hiking and mountain biking trails begin.
Our home sleeps eight comfortably (4 adults and 4 kids, and a smaller child), plus two fold-out futons and a single fold out portable bed. Upstairs is the master bedroom, which has a double bed, and kids’ room, which has a bunk bed with a single on top and a double on the bottom plus a nook in the wall for a child, although others have slept there for the novelty. Downstairs is a queen-sized bay window bed with dressers in a curtained off area.
We have two bathrooms. Upstairs is literally a bathroom, with a sink and a large claw-foot tub surrounded by mosaics, driftwood, a large skylight above the tub and a large window to the side to stare into the serene forest and watch the birds. At night relax, light candles and stare up at the stars. Downstairs is a flush toilet, composting toilet, a urinal and a shower.
Our home is an open concept with the kitchen and living room. There are three entrances into the house with a sliding wooden door to the downstairs bathroom and a colorful stairway leading up to the main bedroom, kids room, and the clawfoot bathtub room.
Everything you might want will be there, including lots of board games, a trapeze, landline and internet. We provide: bar soap, dish soap, dishcloths, tea towels, toilet paper, and paper towel. We don’t have a dishwasher, but pretty much everything else, including a juicer, large dehydrator, a microwave, stand up popcorn maker, a deep freeze and much more.
Guests bring their own bedding and towels, but these can be included for an additional fee of $10/ bed and $5 for each set of towels (bath, hand, and face). Outside you will find hammocks, a beautiful garden, lots of flowers, fruit trees, a tire swing, a hanging silk for aerial yoga, a firepit, a propane fire pit ($30/week), propane BBQ, a tree-fort, a trampoline and three outside cats.
My adult son and I live on the property, but we have a separate entrance and although we aren’t’ very visible we will be there should you need anything at all to make your holiday the Best Ever!
A great place for kids of all ages is waiting to provide you with bonding family time and lasting holiday memories.
