My wife and I, Lauren, currently live in Richmond, VT with our newly born daughter Abigail. We recently bought the house next door to make room for our growing family. My wife Lauren is a reading teacher and I'm a CPA. We are well established in our professions and are honest, reliable, responsive, and responsible. Lauren is an avid reader and likes working on picture projects and I enjoy home brewing and golfing. We enjoy all things outdoors, especially going for hikes from our back yard or canoeing in the pond just down the road. We are blessed to have found such a beautiful place to live and look forward to sharing it with our guests. Thank you for considering staying with us. Good luck in your adventures!
