Jack and Peggy
We (Jack and Peggy in the picture) love life and are living in the moment, as much as we can. Jack is retired and I am holding a full time job. We like to entertain and make our guests feel at home.
We love the outdoors, travel, hiking, camping, and we love our home's setting. It is where we can relax and enjoy the pleasures of nature.
One unique benefit is that the guest cottage is so tranquil and has a positive energy flowing through. Our guests did pick up on that and are saying our homes have a 'heart' and that it does affect their state of mind in a good way.
The cottage has an open floorplan, a cozy corner, and a lovely veranda with two rocking chairs looking out on the roses. Next to the guest cottage is another seating area with a fire pit and a two seat swing canopy, which we invite our guest to use and enjoy.
The Crafthome and the guest cottage are located on a corner, which gives us some privacy, and a perfect place to entertain people. We are growing our own vegetables, fruit, and flowers we love.
