Arthur and I love sharing our environment with fellow adventurers. As frequent travelers, we know what it is like to be on the road for long periods of time. Created as a personal retreat, Zen Garden offers a peaceful place to return. Coming home to the embrace of a welcoming, beautiful environment is always the best part of the journey. We offer our guests a safe, gentle place to land, to retreat and to explore–an environment you can enjoy as much as we do. If Arthur is home, he is sure to share a moment with you or a tale of his recent travels around the world building community through rhythm. As a health care practitioner, I work to keep body, mind and spirit in balance. We are both writers and artists and enjoy sharing what we create with our visitors.
