Disponible para huéspedes
Our guests will have access to all areas of the barnhouse except the basement and all of the yard except the trampoline (it is a liability issue). We do have some personal items stored in the closets.
We love our neighbor's and ask that you do not venture further down the lane in order to protect their privacy.
We also suggest that guests limit the use of our property to the yard and driveway areas around the yard and toward the church, especially for those guests who may be unfamiliar with poison ivy and allergic to bee stings as a local beekeeper has honey bee hives on the upper portion of our 8 plus acre property. Please ask us how to get to the top of our hill while avoiding passing to near the bee hives.

We are a family and service oriented married couple going on 34 years of marriage. We have three children and four grandchildren. We are active with our extended family and love our church community.
Having retired earlier from a 30 year engineering career, John recently entered his second retirement, this time from teaching math at our church's school. I continue my career as wife and mother and recently have added grandmother to my resume'.
John and I are serious about our projects as you may see as there is usually something happening around here, (we pause for guests).
John and I enjoy traveling but there is no place like home. Since having young marrieds in our family, our motto has become, "have tools, will travel".
Airbnb has given us another opportunity for meeting people. As you can see from our reviews, we host in both Berks and Wayne County.
Your rental fee helps us to maintain, continue with restoration, and improve our buildings while allowing the flexibility we need to care for Erika's octogenarian mother.
We will strive to be welcoming and accommodating to you.
