I'm a sustainable tourism consultant and have traveled, worked and lived in over 30 countries. My favorite places are NYC, Washington state, Washington DC, Vermont, India, Mexico and the North Shore/Great woods of northern Minnesota.
In the summer you'll find me in the garden - I love pesto and make it fresh all summer. We also grow our own grapes and make our own maple syrup from the trees in our yard. My husband and I are a bit bohemian in our travels and tastes. We love all kinds of music and I volunteer often at the Cedar Cultural Center (website hidden) which has some of the best live music in north America. Some of our favorite travel is to music festivals (Winnipeg Folk Festival is a true favorite).
We spend most of our time on the first floor and will not bother you. We are low maintenance guests and welcome same. However, if you need anything please let us know! Whether its a suggestion for a nearby coffee house or a fantastic restaurant, the music scene, the arts scene, outdoor activities, museums, shopping, local food and locally made brewskies, how to get around - we got you covered! We love hosting artists and musicians!
We love learning about our guests and have had some AMAZING experiences - one of our favorites was a Japanese guest who taught us how to make sushi and wrapped all of our Christmas gifts (that we were giving) for us in origami style. She was here during the tsunami and nuclear crisis in Japan so we became family!
