During your stay

Roger and Sabina live in unit 1 and we are almost always around. We often enjoy being invited to join guests at campfires and such, but we respect your privacy. Roger plays guitar and sings. If you would like to be entertained just ask him. He also has some good campfire stories. Sabina is a wealth of knowledge and can offer suggestions for things to do in the area.

If you need something just let Roger or Sabina know. If we don’t answer indoors try hollering for us in the stables or in the pasture area.
