About the Host, Sarah
I am a museum consultant and caretaker of my family's historic home. I have a deep and abiding interest in local history, historic preservation, art, gardens and the natural world. I am happiest when engaged in conversations with people who are curious about the world and open to experiences. I enjoy meeting Airbnb visitors, finding them generally interesting, friendly and open. I want you to feel welcome in my home and tend to be a relaxed hostess. I leave you to yourselves, unless you'd rather engage, in which case I'm happy to talk.
