Interaction with guests
We live on the property in a private suite of rooms and are available between 9 am to 9 pm if needed (unless there is an emergency). We interact with guests as little or as much as they prefer. We are on site when guests arrive to show them where everything is located and are available to open and close the pool (has an automatic security cover).

We ask our guests to treat our home as they would their own home--make themselves comfortable, put things back where they find them, relax and enjoy themselves. We ask that guests let us know in advance if they wish to use the kitchen and that they leave the kitchen in the same condition in which they find it. We also ask that guests who have meals at the house, other than the gourmet breakfasts that we serve, clean up after themselves and leave the space in the same condition in which they found it.

I grew up in Chicago where I lived until I moved to the east coast to go to college and graduate school. After grad school I moved to New York City where I lived and worked for 22 years. During those 22 years I worked in academia, philanthropy and in the non-profit sector and met my husband. In 2007 we purchased a bed and breakfast and relocated to Elkhorn, WI. We also started a vegan food product company, the Elegant Vegan. I love traveling to Italy and reading conspiracy theory novels. Our guests come as strangers but leave as friends.
