I've stayed in several cohousing guest rooms and been welcomed with open arms in all of them even though I wasn't a potential buyer but working on my own cohousing project in Corvallis. Cohousers gave me tours, fed me, and were open about what worked for them and what didn't. A learning experience for me and a tribute to cohousers! Every cohousing group did seem to have their own guest room system. I've had money refused, a nominal fee of $20 or $25 asked for (one community paid a member that amount to clean the room), I've been asked to just clean up after myself, I've helped clean the common house, helped make dinner, bought my host dinner, and contributed to one group that was doing environmental work. I really appreciated the groups that were up front about what they expected or posted the expectations in the room. I think it's good to leave a thank you note in the room as well as thanking your host personally. I look forward to welcoming people into my community soon.
