Annette & I have been together for 43 years. We met in college in Springfield Illinois, where we still live. She grew up in Peoria IL. I grew up in Sheepshead Bay, Brooklyn NY. Our son, daughter-in-law and two small grandchildren live in Flagstaff just around the corner from Parker House. When it came up for sale, we couldn't resist. After purchase, we completely renovated every room in the house during trips to Flag over a year's period. We had designed and built the first sustainable house in our local community of Springfield, and have had many years experience with remodeling projects in the past. Our goal was to produce a comfortable, cozy house we would enjoy living in during visits with our children & grandchildren, one that would also live up to the standards of a modern hotel for our guests. Annette has been a biology teacher and a master gardener. She is quite involved in the Illinois Native Plant Society, the Springfield Civic Garden Club and has done horticulture for local clients. Her knowledge of insects, animals and plants is quite impressive! I (Harv) own Avrom Systems, a computer company which has taken care of the IT needs of small businesses for over 35 years. Over the years I have been a Scoutmaster, worked to organize many camporees for our local Boy Scout council, and headed up a high school aged co-ed Venture Crew. I am a bicyclist, currently on the board of the Springfield Bicycle Club where I coordinate the Annual Capital City Century Ride, and am the vice president of Sustainable Springfield, a local group helping our local community move in a more sustainable direction. We have stayed in Airbnbs in the past, and always thought it would be great to show other groups and families the same hospitality as hosts we've received as guests in the past!
