The house is dog-friendly with many 'baby' gates. One is bolted into the door frame of the twin bedroom on the main floor. Another 'tall' (3' 4") gate can be moved around the house into different doorways, and a 3rd is 12' long with 2' sections. This one can be used to keep doggie safe on the outside deck, keep him in a little 'pen', and many other possibilities. Your dog will be exhausted from watching and listening to the 100s of chipmunks! He will need a vacation after his vacation.
The ground/1st/driveway level is a safe space to leave your dog if you are going out and don't want to crate him. It is an all-TILE space, approximately 11' x 25'. You can throw in the dog bed you brought, and keep him safe and happy while you are gone. No need to crate doggie nor the hassle of bringing the bulky crate! This room is also perfect for bringing in your non-motorized sports gear to keep out of the weather: bicycles, kayaks, fishing gear, ski boots and skis, luge sleds, on and on.
There are brand new appliances: microwave, toaster, dishwasher, oven.
There are plenty of pots and pans, a coffee maker and filters (and some coffee in case you forgot!) full-size fridge, and eating space for 16 (12 at the HUGE farmhouse table and four on stools (with backs) at the kitchen counter.
There is a new propane grill and grilling tools.
The 'spice' cabinet has: full peppercorn grinder, full sea salt grinder, basil, dill, sugar, coconut oil and more.
One of our FAVORITE features of Goslings' Nest is the HUGE floor to ceiling river rock fireplace, with a hearth deep enough to sit on while you enjoy some tea or chat with friends.
THE BRAND NEW WOOD BURNING STOVE IS !!IN! we just finished some improviements on the fireplace and installed a wood burning stove to get the house TOASTY.
This is the perfect space to disconnect, slow down and enjoy the forest with friends and family. However, the high speed Wifi and Roku t.v. also provide you with all you need to work from 'home'.
There is so much or so little to do in the area. We provide books and games. There are hundreds of hiking possibilities in the area, you can visit the Olympic sites, the Au Sable Chasm, the Wolf Sanctuary and on and on. PLEASE don't hesitate to ASK us if you are looking for anything in particular or something out of the ordinary to do. We so LOVE all the the adventures that are available.
The upstairs full bathroom has just been renovated, and the main floor bathroom is also clean and lovely with the bright, knotty pine that is throughout the entire house. There are a full size washer and dryer in case you are an athlete, for instance, and come home cruddy. Ha! Please note the house has spiral staircases.
