Marc and I have lived in many different places, including Nicaragua and Tanzania, East Africa. We love to travel and have been to many countries and 49 of the U.S. states. Our three children are young adults now and we are enjoying hosting guests in our 16-bedroom country inn/B&B. Marc is an engineer and a creative problem solver who is always working on projects to improve our historic building and grounds. I am a teacher and administrator and enjoy cooking breakfasts and baking pastries for our guests. We are available to share information about the Amana Colonies with our guests if they are interested.
