I was fortunate enough to stay in the loft for a few weeks while working in town.

Do you need to treat the grandparents to a getaway?

Thanks, Nick for taking time to write a review. Returning guests often check themselves in, and check themselves out, leaving a check on the table. This allows them to enjoy total privacy and a quiet time for just "being".
