We hope you enjoy your stay at our home! We offer a few experiences that may make your stay a little more memorable. If you’re interested in any of these, just let us know and we can share the finer points!
Mid-Stay ‘Freshen-Up’ - $35.00
This experience has been most popular with our longer stay guests. With this package, we come through and change the bed linens, replace all the towels and do a once over clean of the bathroom. This usually takes about 30 minutes and can be done while you’re out and about running errands or exploring town.
Stock my Fridge - $35.00
This experience has been popular for the guest who is arriving late at night, here for business or bringing children with you and doesn’t have the time to go grocery shopping. With this experience, you simply complete an online grocery order from one of our local grocery stores (Harris Teeter, Wegmans, Publix) and we pick up your groceries, bring them to the house and unpack everything for you. This way, when you arrive, your fridge and pantry is stocked and ready to go! This is for one store pick up; each additional store or stop is $15.00 within 10 miles of the property. (Sorry, we can’t deliver alcohol, but there are local services)
Capture the Moment - TBD
If you’re like us, many times when you’re traveling, you’re doing so to celebrate a special occasion, visit family you don’t see too often or just explore a new town. No matter your reason, you may want to capture some special moments with professional pictures. We have a local photographer that we really love using and she offers a 15% discount to our guests. If you’d like to get an idea of prices or chat with her about various locations around town to take pictures, just let us know and we’ll connect you with her! (see packages below)
Surprise!!! - $60.00*
From time to time, our guests are in town to celebrate someone else - it could be a birthday weekend, graduation, new career celebration or an anniversary of some sort. Let us pre-decorate the home for you to surprise your loved one. We try to tailor the decorations to the celebration theme - is it a birthday? Anniversary? Something for your kid who loves a special Disney theme? It could be as simple as some flowers and battery-operated candles preset. Typically, we’d have a quick conversation with you once you make your reservation so we can discuss the celebration and expectations. *This fee is labor, install and delivery - it does not include the actual decorations. We will discuss your budget and ensure we stay under that amount, then simply add our fee. Receipts provided.
Morning Rise - $40.00*
If you’re like us, starting the day off with a fresh pastry (or 5) can really set the tone. We deliver to your front porch, the evening prior to your requested date, a box of fresh pastries from one of our favorite local bakeries. Typically, the treat box includes 2 scones (variety), 2 croissants (plain or variety) and 1 cinnamon or pecan roll. *This is unavailable on Monday’s as the bakery is closed on Sunday & Mondays and who wants day old pastries! Also, we deliver a variety of pastries and can’t offer specifics, as we don’t know what the bakery will have until we arrive. If you have specific food allergies, we prefer to not handle your food out of an abundance of caution.
Sweet Treats - $40.00*
Maybe you prefer your sweet treats in the evening to enjoy on the back deck with an evening coffee or glass of champagne. In this package we deliver 4 cupcakes from one of our favorite dessert shops. We have 2 that we really like in town! *We deliver a variety and can’t offer specifics, as we don’t know what the dessert shop has until we arrive. If you have specific food allergies, we prefer to not handle your food out of an abundance of caution.
Tour of our Favorite Places - $20.00
Sometimes the hardest decision when visiting a new town is where to eat. With this package, we’ll set up a dining experience for you! We typically will inquire about the kind of food you like and if you prefer any pre-dinner stops for cocktails or appetizers, then we’ll give you the plan of action! We typically leave the reservations up to you, that way if you have last minute changes you can make them, but we’ll handle the rest. If you can’t get a reservation, let us know and we’ll sub in another suggestion!
*Payments for these services are done through your booking platform - we simply add them as an additional charge*
