We wish to keep the "process" of enjoying our and your ARThouse simple, serene and worthwhile. We may allow access to the Maumee River via the property on a select, supervised, case by case basis. But in general, and strictly so, no river access is permissible. This is for the protection of the guests and our peace of mind. Trust us, the Maumee River is one dangerous lady. If you do not know the holes, the rapids and the undertow currents, you can be swept away in a flash. And this has happened before on this river many times : ( We also wish to make it crystal clear (in case it is not already evident in our name "ARThouse" : ) that there IS a fully functional residential art studio downstairs where we live at times, have business meetings, entertain our own valued guests and yes, ART HAPPENS THERE. We come and go at our pleasure and choosing to keep an eye out, ensure supervision, protection and safety. This should be self-evident and well understood within our mutual agreement. So to re-iterate, we are the ARThouse and ART is the essence of who we are. Thanks folks! We know you understand : )
