Guests here can indulge in the indoor hot tub, enjoy the sunshine deck and relax in the infra-red sauna. Guests will also find outdoor showers, a labyrinth and 900 plus acres to explore.
The main floor is an open area with the kitchen, conversation area, dining table, and built-in hot tub. The nicely equipped kitchen comes set with equipment for cooking and preparing meals, as well as a dishwasher, a gas stove and an oven. The hall leading to the upstairs brings guests to a half-bathroom and the laundry-workout room area with the infra-red sauna, and other equipment.

We rest our houses 24-hours before cleaning (our post inspection and garbage removal is done with masks and gloves), and then at least 18-24 hours after we clean (if something happens and we have to go in, we go in with masks and gloves). We have supplemented our natural, non-toxic cleaners with EPA approved disinfectants/sanitizers, and a spray we use on our way out. We also leave these and other supplies for guests to use, should they feel the need. We wash all linens and bedcovers between guests. When we can, we hang bedcovers and linens outside for that extra solar cleanse. We have removed things, and changed things (pillows, throws, toys, extra spices, condiments in fridge) we didn't feel we could disinfect thoroughly. We monitor ourselves for signs of Covid-19, and when off the ranch, we wear masks, spatial distance and avoid crowds, theaters, restaurants, etc.
