And now... the kitchen!
This is the entrance hallway: to the left for the bedroom and bathroom, to the right for the kitchen and living room.
Here's the kitchen!
Carol will give us a tour of the full-size kitchen.
You get a full-size refrigerator/freezer with an automatic icemaker that makes plenty of ice. You don't have to leave the room to get any.
And then you have a full fridge with room for butter, your vegetables, meat, drinks... plenty of room!
That's an awfully small-looking coffee pot! But it's not the only one that's here...
Look in the pantry, and they give you a bigger one! A ten-cup one - - so you have two coffeemakers. When you first arrive they give you complimentary coffee and creamer and sugar -- enough for two cups. They never gave us any more but the Mousekeeper probably saw that we brought our own, plus we never asked for more.
They give you plates, a platter, bowls, small plates, six mugs, six glasses (one not shown is in the dishwasher), a Pyrex measuring cup, and a casserole dish.
They also give you two saucepans, a skillet, a large pot to boil pasta in, a water kettle to heat up water, a colander, and lids.
A toaster, cutting board, the kitchen sink (so you can't say "they give you everything but the kitchen sink!")...
...a dishwasher, and you get a recycling container, a garbage container, dishwashing liquid for the sink, dishwasher detergent, a paper towel.
They provide forks, knives, spoons, a manual can opening, a tablespoon...
They give you steak knives, a larger knive you can use for cutting vegetables, plastic spatulas (for indoor use -- bring your own metal barbecue utensils for the grill), and a can opener/bottle opener.
This is an electric stove with a full oven and a glass cooktop. We're used to gas, but it works. There's a spoon holder shown on top of the cooktop -- Don't get it too near the heat when the stovetop's on!
The stove has a timer, and a microwave above it.
The microwave has a rotating tray inside so you don't have to turn your food to have it cook evenly.
The big gas oven has a tray inside it, too.
To the right of the stove, there's lots of storage space in the pantry.
Another look at the pantry. This upper one is to the right of the microwave.
And to the right of the pantry is the living room - - next up on our tour!
