Work-Glamping… Part Three

image

The Laundry Room is located in the building behind the garden.

It is my pet project,  as we wash and dry our clothes on average of every 9 days. Oh, did I forget to mention that Charlotte gives us all the quarters we need? This is an unexpected perk indeed!

Everytime I do laundry I wipe down the 4 machines with lavender scented

which smells so good and reminds me of Ollie Land as Jen and Brian use this product in their home. The fragrance is so calming and it is my crazy way of thanking the gods of the washers and dryers. It just makes me happy, that’s all!

Then I sweep the floor and shake out the rugs. Periodically I de-cobweb with the “webster”,

clean the windows, and “windex” the collection of bathroom ladies’ pictures.

Finally, I sweep the sidewalk area around the rest of the building that includes the water treatment room and storage room for cabin supplies and other miscellaneous items.

Charlotte’s personal touches encourage the pleasure of taking extra good care of things, as if I owned them myself.


The 2 bathrooms rest on an old trailer chassis that was gutted and remodeled.

Each one has a toilet, sink and counter, and a fiberglass shower. The showers run on $2 tokens for 10 minutes. These facilities are for the exclusive use of guests. However, many, many cars pull up asking about using a bathroom! I know first hand, that Sandy Creek Wayside, about 2 miles west, has 3 public restrooms.

Other folks slyly pull in looking for coffee to buy (aka, a bathroom too!) I just send them 8 miles west on 42 to the town of Bridge. Coffee is available in the General Store and outside there is a public restroom. I personally checked out this option too!

Jeff is the bathroom guy, always has been since we were married. He cleans, spruces, and stocks them. I like to sweep outside and “webster” away the cobwebs.


The 3 cabins are Charlotte’s responsibility, although once Jeff and I helped her daughter-in-law to clean them.

They are so adorable inside, reflecting the rustic flavor of the northwest. Two cabins have a large soaking tub and all three offer the ammenities of a first-class hotel room, complete with a fully stocked kitchen, an electric barbecue grill and mugs in the freezer for your favorite beer!

Each cabin has a back porch view of the Coquille River that babbles along and sings guests to sleep.

One of my chores was to rake up all the dead leaves, weeds, and other debris between cabins 2 and 3. I think Jeff hauled about 5 loads in Miss Daisy to the burn pile!

image

Jeff and I washed all the windows inside and out. I raked up the old dead leaves and the rhododendrons’ fallen blooms in the beds in front of the cabins and helped Charlotte spread new redwood bark.


When I help to enhance a slice of paradise, I feel a sense of ownership and pride. Maintaining paradise then becomes a joy and not a chore.
