"I stayed in "Alice's Hideaway" for about 5 months. I can't give enough praise for how enjoyable it was. If I could give it 10 stars I would."
"The Alice apartment I lived in is beautiful, just like a fairyland. It has everything one needs to have in order to live comfortably”
The LIVING ROOM offers a comfortable sofa, chair and original art above a wood-look Pergo floor. The comfortable sofa is actually a queen-sized sleeper for an extra guest or two.
A separate SITTING AREA offers a love-seat and arm chair to enjoy viewing the cable flat screen television with DVD player or playing a variety of board games.
A tiger-oak desk is the highlight of the STUDY, and there are dozens of books on the floor-to-ceiling bookshelves, as well as a deep closet.
The DINING NOOK on a raised platform faces south via a large sunny picture window overlooking the garden. Shelving is convenient for keeping extra kitchenware handy.
The KITCHENETTE includes a full-sized refrigerator, 2-burner electric cook top, coffee maker, microwave, blender, counter convection oven, granite-like counters and sink and all kitchenware.
BEDROOM #1 is decorated with hand-painted furnishings modeled after a Victorian "painted lady." Even the queen bed, covered with a handmade quilt, is topped by a large headboard reminiscent of a Victorian gabled roof line, with its round vented “attic window”. A delightful carved armoire can house one's clothing, as can the large triple dresser.
