A 30-something professional with western roots, I've enjoyed spending the past 17 years living in the Washington DC region, working for community banks, traveling, being a living kidney donor & advocate, and spending time with my husband and Jack Russell Terrier, Phil. I purchased my first cabin, Moss Hill, in 2009 and spent many years renovating it and enjoying it on weekends. In 2015 I decided to try Airbnb, and much to my surprise, the cabin was very popular. I was so pleased with my experiences with being a host, that in 2016 I added another cabin, Horizon Hill, to use and share with Airbnb guests. In 2017 I purchased an 1880's cabin in downtown Berkeley Springs and, along with a friend, renovated over 9 month into what is now Hidden Hill. Being a host has been an incredible experience! I love how guests treat my cabins as if they were their own and I love sharing the West Virginia/Berkeley Springs experience with others. Berkeley Springs is a great town filled with wonderful people. I encourage my guests to get out and meet those who make Berkeley Springs such a special place.
