I am a wilderness educator from Woodstock, N.Y. As someone who has enjoyed many adventures in the U.S., Asia and Latin America, I am especially aware of the power and importance of magical accommodations. I love providing the enchanted destination, and love arriving at them too! I appreciate guests who dwell in my home with joy, care and respect, and happily offer the same when I am visiting others. As a life long teacher, I love nurturing my guests with the beauty of nature, plenty of wonderful books, an array of lovely teas and plenty of privacy. I am also thrilled to be able to offer advice on local venues and wilderness trails. I look forward to a quiet contemplative stay and to offer the same to my guests.
