Our home is a peaceful, friendly atmosphere, with a retreat-like feel.
Family is very important to us and Sunday evenings some of our family gathers in main house and plays cards and games.
Family, grandchildren and family-friends may be using the pool or hot tub at any time.
Occasionally there may be some of our family members staying in the room next to you. They will try to be quiet and leave the bathroom for your use only.

No smoking or any tobacco products; no pets on premise
Al and I are both Cleveland natives. I am a retired race horse trainer and boarding stable owner/operator and my husband, Al is a retired master photographer. We've been happily married for almost 50 years.
We put a lot of energy into creating and maintaining a beautiful and welcoming living space. We are all about family, but when our four grown children and fourteen grandchildren are busy with their own lives we are busy with various hobbies. Al is a senior olympic medalist in volleyball, as well as an avid card and game player, Japanese garden enthusiast, and forever a brilliant photographer. I love birdwatching, reading books, helping people through volunteer work, walking in the park with our dog Chloe, being active in my church community and gardening.
We've always opened our home and hearts to friends and sometimes even strangers in need of a bed or a family for the holidays. Airbnb seems like a natural fit for us. It makes us happy to provide a welcoming, comfortable space for people and we enjoy learning about other's lives.
