My wife, Christine, and I are a semi-retired couple who remain very active, and share a close affinity with nature. Our property has extensive gardens, and hosts a Spring House feeding a small stream, waterfall and pond, surrounded by wildflowers and patios for relaxing. As an Advanced Certified Wildlife Habitat, our property hosts songbirds year-round, accompanied by foraging White-tail deer, the occasional Fox, and Great Blue Herons stalking the pond fish. We enjoy travelling whenever possible, in the Continental United States, Alaska and Hawaii. We've also traveled extensively in Europe, Central and South America, and Japan. We plan our travels by researching and developing our own itineraries to include both adventure (hiking, backpacking, mountaineering) and leisure. We enjoy good wine, (sourced locally when possible) , Italian, French, Japanese and Thai cuisine. Our favorite cuisine, however, is prepared by Chris and myself utilizing our fully functional and original open-hearth fireplace, combining our sense of adventure with hearth-side cooking in an innovative way to entertain friends. Our perfect evening is a meandering meal by the crackling fire in our Keeping Room illuminated only by candles and the fire, bringing old friends and new acquaintances together, to make hearts one. But, I have to confess, my homemade pizza and bread, cooked by the flames in our wood-fired beehive oven, is to die for. We love to meet new people and share their experiences. Our home begs to be shared with others, as it has been lovingly restored by the owners (Doug & Chris) to its Pre-Revolutionary roots, bringing the past alive and enabling visitors and friends to immerse themselves into the charm and ambiance of life as it was over 250 years ago. At the same time, the house has been completely brought up to modern standards, enabling our Airbnb guests to combine old charm with modern amenities. Chris and I realize it's a big world out there just waiting to be explored, but we also realize that there simply isn't enough time to experience it all. But we can experience a great deal of the world, by vicariously sharing experiences with our guests.
