We are happy to introduce a new member to the Fertile Ground family of lodging options. This small house is 2 blocks south of Fertile Ground off Union Ave. It is set back behind another larger house which happily blocks it from the traffic noise of the busy street. We were happy to find the owners' taste in furnishings to be similar to our own, so we gladly accepted their offer to help keep it occupied in their absence.
The Union Place has only one official bedroom with a queen size bed. But there's a pull out, full size bed in the Media Room which could hold another person or two. There are sliding french doors that can close off the Media Room and dark curtains to pull across them for privacy. The large flat screen TV comes complete with full cable access, On Demand, Netflix and more. There are speakers you can hook your iPod up to. Wireless Internet? But of course!
The kitchen is our favorite part. It's very large for such a small house, meaning you won't be alone when you're cooking! It's surrounded by dark tile with glass accents. All the small appliances you might need are there, as well as stainless steel cookware, plenty of dishes and fine glassware. Speaking of glass, the owner's son is a glass blowing artist so there are several of his pieces sprinkled into the décor.
We think you'll like the Union Place and enjoy the contentment of having your own house with the convenience of being downtown. We're just 2 blocks away if you need anything or just miss the garden and chickens and want to visit.
There's a two night minimum on the Union Place.
We've priced the Union Place at the same rate as the Bamboo Bungalow:
One bedroom = $130
Two bedrooms = $160
plus $25 Cleaning Fee
Here's a little comparison chart to help you choose between them.
