Kapra’s childhood collection of cat pictures will make “purr”fectly quiet sleeping companions in this basic “economy” room.   One comfy queen bed with a shared hall bathroom with shower(shared with Maxwell Street Room) makes this a very economical choice.  Great light from window facing west onto Greenview.  Maximum occupancy 2 guests. Children 10 or older allowed as part of maximum occupancy.  SF: 100

Amenities: Full hot breakfast, free wi-fi and free off-street parking space; Satellite TV/DVD; iron and ironing board, hair dryer, spa robes, slippers, shampoo, conditioner, soap, shared guest kitchen with coffee/tea service, house phone with free local calls, commonly shared guest sitting room, central heat and A/C. There is a lovely roof-top deck for outdoor seating during the summer months and side garden where we grow our fruits, berries, tomatoes and herbs.

We often get American guests unfamiliar with the concept of a “shared” bathroom.  Beyond personal choice, they often wonder, “How does it work?”  Well, if you ever attended college and lived in a dorm, co-op or frat/sorority you most likely shared a bath with your other house or floor mates.  This bathroom is down the hall for the Cat guests and there is only a key on the inside that you can lock so that no one can surprise you.  If the bathroom is being used by another guest, you wait your turn.  Generally, we find guests all have different schedules, so it is rare that both guestrooms have guests all needing to get up and out at the same time of the morning- so rarely is this an issue.  This bath is shared with no more than 2 other guests in the Maxwell guestroom.  We clean this bathroom daily.  Hope that helps to explain the concept of how a shared bath “works” at the Two Urns B&B.
