Ruth: I'm managing the Big Water Rental AirBnB for owner, Jacquie Chandler. I'm a writer and artist, generally working on projects while I enjoy meeting our wonderful guests from around the world!

Jacquie Chandler: What do a leather fashion designer (from Santa Barbara), A Corporate Story Coach, Geotourism Guide and co-founder of Sustainable Tahoe have to do with hosting...

As an AirBnB Superhost, I combined my ability to design and serve, by hosting visitors into a Tahoe story of fun, meaningful, low-carbon geotourism* adventures that enrich memories while ensuring Lake Tahoe's beauty endures.

And as the co-creator of The Earthgym with Mick Dodge, I share an earth-landing practice for remembering the forest and crafting an Earthgym wardrobe (seen on Nat Geo TV show "The Legend of Mick Dodge.")

It is very rewarding to see visitors choose 'geotourism' activities that enrich their sense of place while sustaining or enhancing the unique watershed of plants, wildlife, heritage and culture. Visitor feedback demonstrates the mission of Sustainable Tahoe; connect to care and then share from that caring. My hope is that the desire of visitors to go deeper into the treasure of Tahoe with less carbon footprint will inspire our hospitality industry to host geotourism as well. This way the water clarity we love will be here for the future

My favorite (geotourism) activities in Tahoe include:
1. Walking the 'lower loop' in my backyard forest
2. Earthgym training at the beach
3. Running in the Lake
4. Mtn bike 'Incline Flume' Trail
5. Biking or Kayaking to Hidden Beach
6. SUP at dawn or sunset
7. Dancing to live music at CBC
8. Taking Bus w/bikes to Tahoe City and bike along Truckee River
9. Sunset dining at Sand Harbor (3 mile drive south)
10. Resting in the backyard hammock watching wildlife play

* geotourism; is tourism that sustains or enhances the unique geographical, aesthetic, cultural, historical, environmental and local well-being of a destination. Created in National Geographic in 1997 to help world destinations retain their unique assets, through educating locals to Identify, Develop, Promote and Sustain what is special while preserving the uniqueness. It's an Art and a Science of destination stewardship.

May the forest be with you!
