Interaction with Guests
When I am home, I am happy to provide information on sight-seeing, shopping, dining. When not at home, I will be available by email or Skype. My daughter lives nearby and will be available as needed for key exchange or any other matters.
Lovely, quiet, walkable neighborhood near Elizabeth Park and all local universities. Great restaurants and shopping in West Hartford Center (one mile from home). Places of Interest: The Wadsworth Atheneum; The New Britain Museum of American Art; Elizabeth Park and its world-famous rose garden; The Mark Twain House & Museum; The Old State House.
Public transportation is not terrific in Hartford. It would be useful to have a car or a bicycle for getting around.
No smoking. Well-behaved pets. Leave house in condition you found it.
About the Host, Janet
I am a retired Trusts & Estates attorney who recently returned from two years in Ukraine with the Peace Corps, where I taught English at a pedagogical university. Before that, I taught English for two years in Hunan Province, China. I have two grown children, one who lives nearby and one in New York City. I love reading, movies, theater, art and art history, photography, walking, and bicycling. I grew up in Charlottesville, VA, but have lived in the Hartford area most of my adult life. Five things I can't live without would be books, the internet, food, friends and family. My all time favorite travel destination is France.
