Ursa Major : the cook's boarding house

"Casa Ursa" — The Boarding House

Josephine logoURSA MAJOR KITCHEN is at the heart of the home known as Casa Ursa. You can learn more about Casa Ursa’s community focus, events, and meals on our Facebook page, and sign up with Josephine.com for delicious homemade meals to go. You can also arrange to have the services of a personal chef on a regular weekly basis in your home. We will design a menu especially to meet the needs of your family's diet and schedule.

The outstanding quality of our kitchen and dining table is a comfortable family atmosphere that encourages conversation and community. We ask that our guests leave their phones on a charger, rather than bring them to the dining room.

Facebook logo/linkCASA URSA is our small boarding house with accomodations for overnight stays, including dinners. Neighbors and friends are invited to fill out the table and share meals and conversation together. Two- and three-course custom dinners are available weeknights as well as a three-course breakfast on Saturdays. There will also be occasional Sunday salons and holiday events.

You can book your stay at Casa Ursa through Airbnb. We have two accommodations for overnight stays. The West Bedroom is a large, comfortable room with a queen bed and is suitable for a couple. Book the Western Bedroom. The Eastern Bedroom faces the morning light and is comfortably furnished including a queen bed for a couple. If you are traveling with an extra person you can rent the Suite which adds a connecting room with a double bed to accommodate up to three guests. So "make a suite" by choosing the extra person charge. Book The Eastern Bedroom or Suite.

Both of these rooms share a handsomely remodeled bathroom as well as a Butlers room, which houses amenities such as water, wine, tea, a reading library, iron, and an ironing board. Our nightly rates include a European breakfast served from 7 to 8 am. For an extra fee you can arrange for a later and much larger breakfast. And we also encourage you to book a place at our table. If you would like to entertain guests or hold meetings during your stay, we will make every effort to meet your needs.
