Hello Hotelier by trade, now co-owner of an import business. Hosting on AirBnB gives me the opportunity to fulfill my passion for hospitality. I love cooking, entertaining traveling and planning projects. If we don't have guests we live in Old Lyme, if we do, in Boston. Since we purchased this home in the picturesque city of Old Lyme we have made significant improvements to the modern yet luxurious house, built in 1977. And we love to share this special place with cool people that appreciate a unique and fun but quiet environment. Please drop me a note if you have any questions whether that be on the house or the lovely area of coastal Connecticut.
