I am a retired Social Worker with two grown sons. My life's motto is "worrying does not stop bad things from happening and it keeps you from enjoying all the good things in life ". My passion is my family! I am proudly " county raised" and happiest in my garden or my kitchen preparing and enjoying the family table. I am homebody extraordinaire; an avid reader with a love of DIY projects, cooking, gardening, foraging and preserving nature's bounty. My husband and I are knowledgeable and proud of our beautiful county and take great pride in our efforts to tend to "all those little details" while hosting guests from all over Canada and the world . We offer guests unique local knowledge of our wonderful PEC and invite you to enjoy a little " home away from home " in our "Barker Suite "guest quarters.
