Interaction with guests
Having had long and rewarding careers, my husband and are I now happily retired. We love traveling and sharing our home with fellow travelers. We'll probably be traveling during your stay. That said, we so look forward to meeting you, showing you around our home, and answering any questions you may have.
Please enjoy yourselves but no loud parties. And, be especially considerate of our wonderful neighbors by not hosting loud gatherings on the porch at night. And, please, no smoking in the house. Be sure to call us with any questions or if something isn't working properly.
