Zugang für Gäste
Guests can enjoy the outdoor room and also my ever evolving garden. Our neighbors occasionally gather on the porch next door on pretty evenings and our guests are always invited and welcomed if they would like to join in. Guests may host small gatherings in the outdoor room or inside as well. We only ask you keep it to a small number (4 to 6).
Interaktion mit Gästen
We are always available and encourage our guests to approach us with anything they may need or answer any questions. Your comfort is our priority when you are here. We are acutely aware that some guests traveling for business may desire less interaction. Some guests vacationing may prefer more interaction. We pretty much let our guests determine how much that is.

I worked in the medical education field for most of my career. During that time, we often hosted medical students, interns and residents for month long stays during their away rotations. Some of those individuals still contact me occasionally. My husband and I raised three daughters and we now have five grandchildren. My husband enjoys spending his spare time in his workshop. I enjoy cooking, gardening, boating, going to the beach, and being an Airbnb host.
