Hey, I'm Ellen!
Altadena, California, United States · Member since September 2011

I have been hosting people with love and joy for decades! I love Mexico, Africa, China, folk art from all over the world, great food, books, theater, wonderful conversation and giving people what they want and need when they travel.

We also have a dog door if you can't stand the idea of traveling without your dog. While we have some house rules about dogs, if your dog is a good guest, we want them with us! For an extra fee, we'll even watch them, feed them and let them play with our dogs while you go to Disneyland all day long.

The bed in our guest suite is designed for readers. You don't even have to get out of bed to shut off the lights when you're reading into the wee hours.

Do you need an escape to finish your thesis or your book? We just might have the right solution for you. You tell us what kind of office chair you need, and we'll rotate in the style that you want so you can hide and write all day.

My husband, Ken Gruberman and I, are people folks but we also are privacy people and know how to leave guests alone.
