Originally from the Hudson River/Shawangunk region of New York State, Tom and Gail re-located to Colorado in 2006 to explore the amazing southwest culture. Through Airbnb, we enjoy opening our home and hospitality to people from, so far, over 36 countries. A guest from Belgium once said she was trying to determine if she wanted to be a desert or a mountain dweller, and here in the "Four Corners" of the United States, we have ready access for both choices. All seasons have their beauty, and are easy to adapt to, thanks to a moderate climate.
Tom is a craftsman who can build or fix anything! His warm personality and smile is his trademark, and his Irish roots are part of his love for sharing stories, ideas, and conversation. Tom is great at noticing your needs, and offering his assistance. He loves to ride "the orange carrot" his road bicycle, and explore the natural scenic beauty of the area.
Gail has been everything from a cook, to a singer, to her current work for United Airlines at Durango-La Plata Airport. She is also a very "hands on" type of person-with landscaping, homeschooling, and massage therapy, in her background.
We appreciate the heritage spirit of the Southwest, the scenic beauty, and laid back Western style of Durango, with friendly people and a strong sense of community, culture, and connection with the outdoors.
