My stay with Rick was absolutely lovely. I flew into Willard airport and didn't have use of a car, so Rick very kindly picked me up. It was a little late for me to head out to find something for dinner, so he also offered me a very tasty roast that he already had in the oven! …

Rick's place is a lovely gem, and Rick is a delight. The place feels like an artist's retreat in the woods, yet all my planned activities were within blocks. Relaxed atmosphere, incredible artwork, beautiful light and a host who thought of all my needs.
