I love to travel and hate the cost, so I decided to be part of the solution. When I travel, I like to be relaxed and informal (most of the time), but I love being surrounded by unique spaces. I love architectural history, and this home and airbnb make the perfect match. Preparing it for guests has been great fun I love decorating (not the cleaning!). I used to take over small towns for a living (city manager), then I tried to take over a small state (ran for statewide office), now I'm a realtor and airbnb host! A cache of historical books came with the house, so I am indulging myself by curling up with one whenever I get the chance. My husband is the biggest help in the world, and I couldn't do it without him. We've been married 42 years, and I hope we have many years together meeting new friends in our new venture. And, this is the best of all!
