We are a Baby Boomer couple who are in love with the Pacific Northwest (I moved here about 12 years ago as a wide-eyed innocent). I am still blown away with the surroundings here and my passion is sharing them with others. What better way than through Airbnb and the discoveries we've made here over the years?
In my past lives, I worked in the hospitality industry, had various sales positions, was a Chiropractor, rode and showed horses, was a professional violinist, and most recently, a Realtor. I left that industry awhile ago, but retain my knowledge of various areas and neighborhoods.
My experience in living in 8 other states has helped me appreciate this area exponentially. I love having a temperate climate and enjoy the rainy season as well... at least until late spring when I get antsy to get into my garden.
I love to cook and create tasty dishes featuring the freshest local produce. I've been told I'm a fine cook and a great snack inventor.
When hosting, we like to provide peaceful surroundings with a comfortable bed, clean bathrooms, and easy access to the kitchen, and amenities here and in the area. This is a perfect and affordable jumping off point for your adventures - especially if you wish to explore further east of Portland to the Gorge. .We try to provide as much useful information as is needed to help make the your stay better.
My husband, was a professional artist who is now enjoying an entirely different line of work. We still have a huge art studio as a separate building on our property that we use from time to time.
He has taken up guitar and does spend some time playing when he's not working. You are welcome to join in if you have an instrument. He has both electric and accoustic. Could be fun.
