        2 with a shared bath

       One has 2 single beds with about a single bed’s width between, a night 
table with lamp, a bureau, a chair, and a luggage holder.
       The other has 1 queen bed plus a single, a night table with lamp, a 
bureau, a chair, and a luggage holder.
       Both rooms have overhead fans and light blocking curtains.

       They are used frequently: friends & family plus a host of other 
visitors.  There are some slack periods. Demand usually outstrips     supply 
around the holidays.  But then some of our members are traveling during that 
period, and many have offered their units as a backup to the guest rooms.

     No & no.

     Very rarely.

     We don’t charge a fixed fee. Guests or hosts can donate if they wish.  
Most do.
     Clean-up is the responsibility of the host; both bedroom & bath.
     The common house committee oversees supplies.
     Stays are limited to 2 weeks with exceptions by approval of the community.
     Guest have full use of the common kitchen.
