We are taking a break from hosting. Hope to be back up soon. Between Covid and our own vulnerable health (cancer surgery this summer for Ed), I do not have the will to take on the added responsibility that the pandemic requires. Thank you for bearing with us for now. We hope to be back in action in 2021.

The space
The living quarters are separate from our home and are used for our friends and extended family. Pets are part of our family, so we will accommodate well behaved family pets.

Guest access
There is wifi and antenna TV (30+ stations) with dvd player and roku. In addition to having your pet sleep with you in the apt, guests have access to an outside dog pen for well behaved family pets.

Other things to note
The apartment is newly constructed in a former carpentry shop that the previous owner built off the detached garage.

Location

Defiance, Ohio, United States

We are located at the edge of the Thoreau Wildlife Sanctuary. You might see wild turkey, deer, and a variety of birds or take a short walk and visit the conservation area. Defiance College, shopping and restaurants are all close by. Visit the historic Carnegie library on the confluence of the Maumee and Auglaize Rivers.

We are retired teachers: I taught composition courses at Defiance College (adjunct) and Ed taught Sociology at Northwest State Community College for 31 years. We enjoy family, friends, and sharing this space with travelers. Our faith in the goodness of humanity continues to be strengthened by so many kind and interesting guests who have stopped here.
