See http://justcomm.org/jc-faq.htm#Q6.5 -------------------- FORWARDED MESSAGE FOLLOWS -------------------- At Prairie Hill in Iowa City we will have 36 units when complete; we’re about 2/3 built. There are two guest rooms on the second floor of the Common House, the Nancy Drew room and the Grant Wood. One has a queen bed and ensuite bathroom. The other, down the hall, has twin beds with a trundle type bed under one of them and a bathroom just outside the door that is also sometimes (but seldom) used by other guests or someone using our office. Both have accessible showers only, not tubs. They are small, no closets but we have hooks and a very small armoire in one room and wire shelves in the bathroom in the other mostly for sheets and towels. Everyone has a host who is responsible for cleaning the room and changing beds after the guests leave. We ask for a $25/night donation which almost everyone leaves. There is a one-week limit on reservations, with extensions possible if other guests aren't scheduled. We have a few people who will offer their homes if they are away and there is a need. We don’t lock the empty rooms because the splits in the guest rooms are helpful in heating and cooling our hallway. It hasn’t been a problem but we don’t have teens. ☺️ Noise has never been a problem. We invite people to use the kitchen and living room downstairs. We offer potential members two free nights to try us out. We have one person who keeps track of the guests on our internal calendar. It has all worked out very well. Slightly larger rooms might be nice but ours seem to work and people always sleep well. Good luck! Valerie
