Where you’ll be

Aurora, Minnesota, United States

We live in northern Minnesota because of the relaxed atmosphere, natural beauty, and proximity to outdoor recreation. Being located next to Giants Ridge, the Villa provides endless year-round activities right out the door. Skiing, cycling on the Mesabi Trail, boating on Wynne Lake and the Embarrass River, golfing at Giants Ridge's top ranked courses, and just enjoying the great outdoors are our favorite activities. Plus amenities, dining, and some fantastic "tourist" attractions (MN Discovery Center, Soudan underground Mine Tours, and the international wolf and bear centers to name a few) are just a short drive from our location.

I am a degreed professional with a variety of passions and interests. In addition to an engineering career, I have worked in the natural foods industry (various roles over several years at a food co-op), nutritional counseling, and residential construction and interior design. For the past several years, I have been dedicated to the design/build of Green Gate Guest Houses- 10 unique lodging options within the Giants Ridge Recreation Area. I have a passion for all areas of construction, design, technology, sustainable living, renewable energy, etc., and enjoy putting ideas into action through the myriad of projects I always have going! I enjoy nature, outdoors, exercise (running, hiking, cycling, skiing, etc), as well as the culture and arts of the city. I've traveled domestically and internationally, and value the insight gained from experiencing new cultures. I often bring back design ideas that are eventually incorporated into various projects around the property. Looking forward to some time in Scandinavia next. Having operated my vacation rental properties for about a decade now, I have been fortunate to host such a variety of wonderful guests from all over the planet, and have enjoyed being part of the Airbnb community in my hosting and travels.
