New Harmony is a charming historic town of approximately 900 people. It is a diverse haven for creatives of all types including artists, writers, musicians, and those who support and appreciate the arts and culture. The downtown area is just one block away and is composed of 20 square blocks of Victorian buildings housing a shopping mecca (Mews Gallery) antique shoppes, art galleries, restaurants, quaint cafe's, a deli, a brewery, a tavern, wine shoppe, pharmacy, soap shoppe and more. There are several museums, historic sites, community parks, churches of several denominations including the iconic non-denominational Roofless Church. There are two labyrinths and many parks. Since there is currently no grocery store, the town has a convenience store only that serves decent pizza and a few other hot items. Guests should consider stocking up on groceries in nearby Evansville or Mt. Vernon.

I love hosting travelers in two spectacular locations: Coromandel, New Zealand at the Koru Riverside Retreat, and in New Harmony, Indiana at the AC Thomas House, an elegant Victorian bed and breakfast inn. Myself and my partners enjoy doing everything possible to provide our guests with a relaxing, pleasant and memorable accommodation experience. My main line of work is for the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau in the Office of Financial Protection for Older Americans. I specialize in working to prevent and improve response to the financial exploitation of older people. To feed my soul, I have diverse interests in social justice, environmental protection, travel, photography, fine art, music, cultures (particularly Maori) and more. I enjoy cooking, eating, wine tasting, and conversations with folks from all walks of life. I throughly enjoy being out in nature and observing all manner of flora and fauna. My main residence is in Snow Camp, North Carolina, where I live with my husband, a golden retriever, 3 black kitties, a llamas, a Belgian draft horse, a retired racetrack thoroughbred, and a cockatiel named Elvis. Please reach out to me with any questions you may have.
