My 3 bedroom (each with private bath) house rental, includes the shared use of the kitchen. Your host (me) still lives on premises at rear of first floor, but somewhat private. I use the kitchen partially. Warmth, a sense of place and real experience is at offer. If you wish to cook, bake, light the fireplace, or settle into a chair to read, get to know others, watch a movie after a day of activity, or just kick back, by all means ….feel at home. If needed I'm around, and can tailor your stay.
