This wonderful 1891 farmhouse in the country features sunrise/sunset vistas. 2 guest bedrooms sleep 4. Private bath w/soaking tub & shower. Ambiance is rich, warm, & peaceful. Sunny kitchen & garden. Catering available. LGBT yes.
Vibrance & tranquility coexist here!
The house is, literally, out in the country, sitting on an acre & surrounded by cornfields. (The movie, "Field of Dreams" comes to mind.) The rooms are beautifully opened up from Victorian days, yet still maintain original oak floors and trim. The kitchen is state of the art; windows & light abound, air flow during summer is perfect. (We do have central air conditioning, but rarely need it thanks to ceiling fans in all rooms). During winter, an efficient wood burning stove augments the central heat.
4 people sleep comfortably, 6 if your are renting the whole house. The Guest Suite is upstairs, completely private, 2 bedrooms (1 queen bed, the other has 2 singles), sitting room has piano, laptop table & lamp. Bath is full of light, with soaking tub and shower.
Large yards north, west and east offer plenty of outdoor entertainment possibilities, and there is an apple orchard to the south. A fenced in back yard (south) offers a patio, herb & vegetable garden, along with a barbque.
This property is an ideal location for meetings & small retreats, or an escape from more formal or work related activities. Catering is available. I am a fabulous cook and love to host. I can offer anything from light brunch, to elegant dinners or buffet style international feasts, indoors and out. Cost to be negotiated.
I do expect to travel some throughout the year, and can make the house/property available for a week(s) at a time while I am gone. A property manager will be available for emergencies.
The whole house, and gardens, is accessible to guests, except my bedroom. I encourage guests to explore it, as it is full of wonderful furniture & folk art from my years of international living and travel. The
refrigerator is available and ingredients for a continental breakfast provided, along with a coffee maker, coffee & teas
I am a combination of gregarious host and hermit. I love interacting with guests in so many ways, then retreating to my own room for privacy.
Because I respect privacy, I can be interactive or relatively invisible, depending on guests preferences. I expect to be staying in my house when guests are here, but if guests want to rent the house privately, I can spend a few enjoyable days staying with friends.

There is a 1300 sq ft pole barn on the property housing a dye studio and fabric design studio. I commonly spend time there with friends. Guests are welcome to explore that as well, when I am present
This place is LGBT friendly. I always expect people to show respect for each other when they are at my place.
I have a dog, Lilly. She's a shy but friendly 1 1/2 yr old English Creamy Golden Retriever. She loves guests and other dogs.
Pets are welcome, with some reservations!
No smoking inside the house or studio.

Can't live without working with food - creating dishes to eat, growing, touching, slicing & dicing, learning food origins and cultures and economics. Garlic & lime very important
Can't live without learning people's stories, and life's lessons. Can't live without close relationships. Can't live without color and texture and shape.
Could easily disappear to the north and east coasts of the Mediterranean - red wine, olives, & honey, music & sunshine.
