Q: How many people can comfortably stay in your home?
A: We have a king bed in the master (2) and a full bed in a bedroom upstairs (2) . There are two twin sized beds in a private loft room (2), as well as a full sized futon and another twin bed in an open loft area (2). We also have a separate queen and twin convertible bed in the living room (2). Depending on how much privacy you desire, our home will sleep 6-10 comfortably. The sleeping arrangement works great for multiple families as well with parents in the bedrooms and the kids in the open areas. We generally suggest no more than 8, but 10 can sleep comfortably. There are two bathrooms with showers on the main floor.
