We normally do not allow animals but I have made an accept ion once. It is a case by case issue and we would have to talk about the conditions and so forth. Secondly, about using my kitchen for cooking, that is also something we would have to talk about. It is an insurance/liability issue. You would be more than welcome to prepare dishes in the dining room and if I am present, I would be happy to bake it for you. I'm not sure what my schedule will be that far in advance. We can discuss this in greater details. I would love to be your 'home away from home' during the holidays. I had two families last year and it was so much fun. For a week long visit using two guest rooms or more, I would gladly provide a discount. I hope the information was helpful in your decision making. Thank you for writing. Deborah, owner and innkeeperg
