About Damon Rogers
Damon and Mark Rogers feel privileged to be the custodians of Damon's family home where in 2000 they retired after 30 years of Navy life. Mark is a retired Naval Officer and as a couple they have lived and travelled the world. It is evident in their surroundings they collected during their Navy years, however, the Southern influence and love of antiques abound. The family home was built in 1919 and Generals Retreat and Captains Quarters (VRBO Listing #496791), the two out buildings located behind the original home, were built in 1970 as a guest home and office suite
Damon Rogers purchased this cottage in 1919
