The space

It is a 'lived in' 125 year-old home with creaky doors, bookcases filled to capacity, old bathroom fixtures, etc. and not to be mistaken for a space out of Martha Stewart Living. The space is cozy, lamplit, and has character for those who appreciate such features.
There is a choice of air conditioning or ceiling fans in both the bedroom and sitting room in the summer months - whatever your preference.
There is 2-hr street parking from 10-3 pm Mon-Fri in front of the house. Free street parking also available on surrounding blocks 24 hrs/day. Street parking permitted 24 hrs/day on Sat. & Sun.

Guest access
The suite is located inside a private home and has its own locking door. A set of keys are provided upon arrival. The space also includes a private sitting room. A large front porch is available for morning coffee or evening relaxation.
A lockbox is available for access to the suite if you arrive after hours.
