Hello, my name is Jack, and I live in Amherst County with my wife Melissa and our three daughters. We enjoy travel, hiking, baseball, homebrewing, and meeting up with old friends to check out restaurants and breweries. The Vixen House was our home for many years, and if you choose to stay with us we hope you feel at home there as well. As we live a few miles away, you will have the whole house to yourself, but we do enjoy meeting travelers to our area and will gladly stop by to welcome you to Amherst if you would like. If your plans bring you to Amherst, we hope you will consider staying at our place!
