My partner and I are going on a lecture tour from April 2 to May 5th approximately.
Dates to be firmed up in the next few weeks.
We are flexible with sitters who may need to stay a couple extra days at either end.
We have three little yorkies who are friendly, albeit talkative. Their ages are 11 years and 8 years. The two older boys are brothers.
The 8yr old female, Lilou, is super friendly and will lick your face off. She's their daughter and neice.
I keep them in a pen in the kitchen because the boys are jerks and tend to pee everywhere. Even with diapers.
THe girl can have free reign but then the boys get jealous and complain. They get let out on a two hour basis, but they can hang out all day in the pen while you tour the city. Though there may be a bit of a cleanup needed afterward. XD
You will not need a car! Unless you have an emergency.
Our townhouse is a seven minute walk to the train with about a 55 minute ride to Manhattan. trains come every half hour or so.
A seven minute walk to Jacob Burns Film Center with great films, coffee houses, pharmacy, Anytime Fitness gym, restaurants all over the place, two minute walk to grocery store, liquor store, etc. Pleasantville is an amazing walking community. With a fantastic library.
We also have a couple of very close friends in town who you can call for help if there is a problem or you need advice on the area.
We have a large guest bedroom with brand new Queen bed where you would stay. It is actually the master bedroom with attached bathroom.
We opted for the smaller bedroom with Southern views. King bed. You could stay in there too! Try out the king!
An office with two Ikea stacked twin beds is where we normally work and for overflow guests.
Large kitchen with granite counter and huge fridge, fabulous new gas stove, and all the appliances a cook could dream of.
Eat-in kitchen. Living room (originally formal dining room) with 3D TV, cable, apps, 1G internet speed, the whole shebang.
Huge library, still in boxes as of this writing. We just moved back to US from Belize, still unpacking.
Plenty of local restaurants to walk to just two minutes down the road, or to order delivery.
No gardens to look after, sadly. But some indoor plants that need love. If they are still alive.
The town house is on a culdesac in a very old neighborhood. It was not designed with cars in mind. :D
We luckily have a two car garage and guaranteed a spot every night. If you absolutely need the car.
