We moved to Stonington three years ago from Washington, DC. I have been visiting this house where my father lived on and off since 1975 and always loved being in a seaside village. My family includes Stuart, my spouse; our children Gwen and Dillon and our cat Vance. We all share in the hospitality of our Airbnb, and really enjoy it!
I love to read odd books, teach yoga, sing in local choirs and acappella groups, am a songwriter and guitarist, work with my hands at anything I feel I can tackle, and generally try to live as a perennial student of life.
Stuart is an artist who makes whimsical figurative pieces, and is a professional gardener and caretaker who loves listening to his diverse rock album collection. Stuart often explores the coastline and inlets in a kayak and I enjoy sailing. Recently we both joined the Stonington Harbor Seals who enjoy long distance swims in the surrounding waters. We all love the beautiful beaches in nearby Rhode Island. Stonington is like an enchanted island on which we live year 'round, even through the howling nor'easters!
We have a son Dillon, age 29 and a daughter, Gwen age 24 who works in the village. Gwen and I went on a one-month backpacking trip across Europe during the summer of 2015, visiting the great art centers and lodging with our first AirBnB hosts. Stuart and I walked as pilgrims on the Camino de Santiago (The French Way) in Spain during the autumn of 2012, and recently the Camino Portuguese in May 2017. We want to taste the pilgrim life now and again, practicing gratitude and openness while encountering the world.
On the other side of the hospitality equation, it has been our great joy to host many Airbnbers over the past two years, and we have been amazed at the diversity of interesting and wonderful people coming to stay with us.
Alice, Stuart and Gwen
