We raised our three children in this home and have enjoyed the diverse beauty and activities of the Bay Area for the last 22 years. Now, David is the president of a liberal arts college in the Midwest and Sylvia is on sabbatical after a successful career as a leader of non-profit organizations engaged in local and international work. We have extensive family and friends in this community and return to our home for short stays several times during the year. During these years of living and working in a different part of the country, we carefully nurture this family home and relish making it available for others to enjoy. Having traveled extensively in other parts of the world, we are able to anticipate many needs of vacation travelers and have tried to equip our home accordingly. Having lived in this area for much of our lives, we take pleasure in giving visitors guidance to many of the fabulous sites and activities of this exciting region, including those "off the beaten track."
