About the Host, Ann
I'm a retired corporate executive and my spouse, Bill, is a retired executive from the Federal Government. We live on the adjoining property, Ashland Farm, which is 150 years old. Bill is a gardener and raises vegetables which are sold to a broker who sources restaurants in the Washington, DC area. We raise chickens and provide fresh eggs to our guests at Rockwood, also fresh vegetables in the summer. Both of us are active volunteers in the community. We also have a condo in the New Orleans French Quarter and in downtown Baltimore--we are avid Ravens and Orioles fans. We love to travel and our favorite destination is Italy. From 1997 through 2003 we lived in Hong Kong, Singapore and Shanghai and we treasure that experience.
I've attempted to make Rockwood Farm everything a vacation renter would want with attention to the smallest details. I want our guests expectations to be exceeded.
