                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 1999

                          About the owner: We are Steve and Tracie Silkwood and we have 5 children, almost all grown now. We live in Houston, Texas and attend Calvary Community Church.

                          Why the Owner Chose Wears Valley:
                          We found Tranquility Gate in October of 1998 while on a retreat with several other couples from Texas. The vision for the cabin is for couples, families and businessmen to have a place where they can 'retreat' and find a time of rest and rejuvenation from the business of this world.

                          The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
                          Our cabin is very spacious allowing folks to spread out either inside or on the wrap around porch. There are plenty of bathrooms as well!
