As this thread progresses I am adding the changes suggested and posting the ‘latest’; please scroll down to see, as this version has changed a LOT:
We prefer guests who will be comfortable with these house rules. Please read them carefully and consider before booking. Please do NOT book my home if you feel that any of these rules are going to impact your stay negatively, because I cannot offer ‘exceptions’ to them.
This is a quiet place for reading, surfing the net, and sleeping; We prefer folks who are out and about during the day.
No smoking or vaping inside or outside
No shoes in the house or your room. Shoes REQUIRED outside, remove them when coming back in.
No food or drink in the room. Food or drink are allowed the kitchen only .
Only confirmed guests are allowed on my property. ‘Visitors’, deliveries, and 3rd party bookings are not allowed. Everybody on the reservation must read and agree and abide by the house rules. Parties, animals, immature or insensitive guests are prohibited. No illegal activities anywhere on the premises or property.
You have access to your room, the kitchen area, and the bathroom assigned to your room ONLY. We share the public areas; please be considerate of sleeping guests.
