Hello! Bonjour! Salut! 你好! We are a young and adventurous "tribe" of 4 (my husband Joel & 2 kids Ben + Caleb) with a passion for different cultures, food, art, travel, and technology. Joel & I are fully-vaccinated with Moderna & Pfizer shots, respectively. While a New Yorker at heart (& born in Beijing, China), I love traveling all over the USA as well as internationally to Spain and Italy with Joel, France, China, Mexico, and Canada. My hobbies are jogging/running long distance races, relaxing with my family, volunteering at church, tech-blogging, cooking & dining out, and painting. Joel, my husband, is originally from Montana and enjoys playing recreational basketball, tennis, volleyball & video games. Joel is an Instructor Mentor at a training company and I work in technology.

My listing is always a work in progress but we describe it as charming with comfortable & clean linens, a guest basket with free snacks & extra toiletries for guests to use, and little luxuries such as organic soap. We try to make you feel like you're staying with friends/family by adding these little touches.

For me plugging in to the local area is what first got me hooked to hosting & traveling on Airbnb. I always try to provide as many local tips as possible. We encourage everyone to tour our nearby towns especially Sparta & enjoy what our lakes, farms, stores, & parks have to offer!

Thank you for reading. Please let me know if you have any questions!
