A Note from the Owner...
I just wanted to share with our prospective guests a bit about why spending time at this "home in the hills" has a special significance for me. I was born and raised in Trinidad. As a youngster, I would often climb up the small hill at the top of Tillotson Street (there were no houses there then) and perch on one of the large rocks, surveying the town below and Fisher's Peak in the distance. It seemed like I was above everything, except the clouds in the sky overhead. This was my "thinking time", and those are treasured moments of my childhood.
That was almost 70 years ago, and a lot of livin' has transpired since then. College, Army, broadcast career, marriage, small business, born again in Christ, grandchildren, retirement...and now the sense that things are coming full circle. The reason for building our "home in the hills", was a desire to share some of those childhood moments when life was simpler with family members. Now that we know the wonders of nature seen in the trees, the rocky hills, the passing thunderstorms and the rainbows that follow ...are all works of the Creator, and are manifestations of His awesome power and wisdom. You may not agree with us about that, but you are still welcome to come and enjoy our "home in the hills" and maybe have a little quiet "thinking time".
