Jeff is a father of 3, high school math teacher, Blues singer & harmonica player, athletic, lover of the outdoors, yogi, Jesus follower. I like to travel the back roads trying to find the hidden wilderness that still exists, or perhaps a really cool thrift shop. Enjoy meeting new people and learning always. Treading lightly on the Earth and leaving places better than I find them is my way of enjoying anyplace, whether it be a natural area or your home that I am staying in. Penny and I travel airbnb exclusively, when possible. Our hosting style is laid back and accommodating, as we're hoping you'll find the comfort and character of our neighborhood and home as relaxing to stay in as we do. Penny and I were married in 2018 and are hosting rooms in our two residential properties. We enjoy these two homes, and we are sure you will too.
