Overjoyed :  those pictures look awesome! With that kind of arrangement I wouldn’t even give them a heads up at all. 

Bee, I just wanna say that you sound lovely in all of your posts (not just this one) so I have a feeling your friends are also wonderful people and will appreciate whatever hospitality you can provide.

Be grateful and don’t complain if you aren’t happy with the arrangements a hotel is always an option

my guest bedroom is set up this way because its how my parents prefer to sleep, and they’re the ones who use the guest bedroom the most.  Other guests have either not cared at ALL or have pushed the beds together.

I dunno if this will *always* hold, but so far if the couple lives together they’re pretty much fine with not cuddling through the night, for a couple nights. 

Personally–while I’d be annoyed if we had to have that setup at a hotel, I have no plans of having sex in my friends guest bedroom, especially if sound travels well in the house (it does in mine..)

I really like sleeping in twin beds, and as long as “visitation rights” are liberally extended THAT is no big deal, BUT- Darling Husband snores, so I sleep better in the long run if I can punch him on the arm and tell him to roll over.

I’d be thrilled. All the blankets to myself!

Given your options, I would prefer to sleep on the pull out with my partner than in twin beds separately. But if pushing them together is easy enough it’s a decent second option.

Overjoyed :  I would LOVE IT. Anything to get me a bit further away from DH’s snoring.

Chiming in again to add that when I was growing up, my dad’s favourite sister loved to entertain but wasn’t bothered about things like enough beds to go around. It wasn’t unusual to have to share a bed with a sister or cousin or two or to sleep on the floor with a comforter and pillow. Occasionally I’d fall asleep in bed and wake up to find another female relative in beside me. Once my younger sister peed all over me and once I woke up to find my great auntie May snoring half-drunkenly a few inches from my face with her dentures clacking in and out with every garlic and onion and whisky scented breath-  lol so the bar was set pretty low for me early on and y’all are spoiled if twin beds for a few nights would make you consider a hotel tongue-out

We have nieces and nephews stay with us most the time so we have this set up in the guest room. Never had a complaint from a couple.

I would not care at all. I loooove sleeping with my husband, but a temporary bed separation wouldn’t be an issue in the slightest.

I’ve stayed at several places like this. My hubbys best friend has a vacation home in palm springs. All the guest rooms have 2 twin beds. We could care less! If we want to have some fun, we usually don’t need more space than that lol! I’m just grateful to be spending time with friends! We’ve visited family and had to sleep out in a living room (squished on a couch) and didnt bother us a bit. I would never want to say anything that would make someone feel not appreciated for opening up their home to us.

I wouldn’t care. Bed is a bed.

I’d have no issues at all, my husband and I have a king at home and honestly if I don’t have space to spread out in the king I’d prefer 2 twins. We actually have booked two twin hotel rooms when the only other reasonably priced options were double or “semi double” which is a horrible size between a twin and a double haha.

My aunt and uncle were visiting my parents a few years ago, and the guest room only had a twin bed. One of them was supposed to sleep on a fold out cot. That didn’t happen. They’re not tiny skinny people by any means, but they still managed to both sleep on the twin bed for a week. Ahhh, the power of love 🙂  Of course, they did complain a lot about how hard it was on their backs, so after that my mom got a queen air mattress.
