eorge graduated from USAFA in 1969 and was stationed in Colorado as a young Intelligence officer. He and Lynn met and married in Hawaii after George’s return from Southeast Asia; a son and daughter soon rounded out their family aloha. In 1978, a visit with friends in Colorado convinced them that this was eventually to be their permanent home. 14 years later, after living overseas, experiencing many cultures, and watching the Soviet empire fall, they finally made it to Colorado! They originally bought their Woodland Park and Cascade houses in 2002 as long-term rentals, but found that converting them to comfortable refuges for vacationers offered them better opportunities to meet and interact with great families from all over the world. George is now retired; he and Lynn have raised and shown some wonderful Bernese Mountain Dogs, in addition to having the honor and pleasure of hosting many visitors to our corner of paradise.
We love Colorado and especially the Pikes Peak region. Living only 15 minutes away in Divide, we saw that the Narnia cabins, (called "Narnia" because of the lamppost!), could be a great way to share our hospitality as well as provide a modest income in our retirement.
