Interaction with guests
We will be on site in a private apartment attached to the house, so we'll generally be available to answer any questions you might have, give detailed advice about local attractions, etc.
- No pets, no smoking, no loud partying. Please treat our house as your own; this is not a hotel. No guests are to be brought to our home without first approving them with us, and definitely no overnight guests that are not registered.
Sebra and I enjoy making our home a happy and welcoming place for our friends and family. She loves to cook; I love to make things. Our house is not a museum; it's a home. Life is busy for us: I am a pastor and involved with two educational institutions; Sebra is a home maker. We have six sons (four all grown up, two little ones left at home). We also have one grandson.
I am also the craftsman behind Steelcroft Supply, a new online provider of custom lighting and home furnishings.
We look forward to meeting you and making your stay here peaceful and easy.
