C.J. (pictured) and Ellen (not pictured). But we bet the golden retriever in the photo gets the most attention.
We are professional pilots and emergency responders who partner working dogs. We are 30-year colleagues with a love for travel and an eye for what makes a stay enjoyable. Home-away-from-home should be a place of comfort, cleanliness, beauty and renewal. As travelers, we seek these things and enjoy seeing Mockingbird Cottage and our neighborhood through the eyes of visiting guests. Our favorite trips are those where it is possible to thoroughly explore a place and live like a local, coming "home" to a space that we can be happy is "ours." We hope to make that possible for our guests, as well.
C.J. is an author who has slept in the back of cars while on emergency search-and-rescue missions and five-star hotels while on book tours. She has retreated to places like Mockingbird Cottage just to achieve Zen with a manuscript. By choice, she has stayed in more than 200 B&Bs all over the world since 1977. She takes good notes in guests' behalf!
Mockingbird Cottage has two human owners, but the golden retriever above likes to think she's the one in charge.
