    Guest room in house with private bath . I live on 28 acres of land in a small town. I have beautiful views from the decks. The house is large and has plenty of space for privacy and
    great space for entertaining . I have a large kitchen and would love if my guest cooked something they would have as a typical meal at home. The house is three floors. And includes a in home theater, sauna and recreations room with pool table. We have a built in heated pool and enclosed gazebo with awesome views for relaxing. It is walking distance to downtown but we do live On a hill. The town is small with a grocery store and a few others but there is bus service to a larger city with more stores
