About
We live in a small town (pop <5000). It is rural yet close to major highways. We keep bees, and there is room for your dog to be off leash---please clean up after. We hear wild animals around-- coyotes, racoons, skunks, turkeys, hawks and deer. Our game camera caught a bobcat! No need to worry, just be aware. Suggested Local Attractions Nearby: Lyman Orchards has seasonal pick your own; Powder Ridge Mountain Park and Resort has mountain biking, zip lines, winter sports, great restaurant and more. Restaurants of all kinds (Tibetan, Indian, Japanese, Middle Eastern, Italian) are in the nearby town of Middletown, which is home to Wesleyan University. Lots of hiking spots nearby, including Wadsworth Falls. We keep bees, so if you are interested in buying local honey, talk to us!

HOST
Active retired couple Details: My husband and I are retired, starting to travel in our small travel van. We keep honeybees and we built our own passive solar timber frame home in Connecticut. Our 20 acre property includes a stream, fields and woods, which you are welcome to wander. Home Town: Middlefield, CT. Halfway between Boston and New York. Skills or Expertise to Share: My husband had a 33 year career as a practicing licensed arborist, and knows a lot about trees, pruning, removal and tree diseases. In retirement, he is making furniture from large old trees that have had to be removed, for whatever reason. and keeps almost 20 hives of bees; some are on our property. We have a large organic garden.
