Who WE are:
I am a full-time visual artist. I am also a 3rd generation ceramic artist. There's hand-made pottery all over the place!
In a not-so-distant past, I was also a Sommelier at one of the best and most highly rated "farm-to-table" restaurants in Manhattan. True Hospitality and knowing how to make guests feel welcome are things I know so very well :)
My girlfriend, Kara, is a professional curator, art critic and an editor. She's amazing to get to talk to.
We have a new puppy. He's a special Eskimo/Samoyed mix. He has a hair undercoat, so he is very hypoallergenic. I have Asthma, Kara has bad allergies, and he does not affect us at all. He lives in our bedroom or his crate. He has NO access to the guest room. He loves all people, such a mushy, just please do NOT feed him human food. Everyone falls in love with him.
All together, everyone here is pretty awesome! We pride ourselves on having our guests leave with amazing memories!
All the best and we hope to meet you soon!
