                          Manager info

                          Year Purchased: 1993

                          About: I have been a professional artist all of my life and I grew up in this house. Turning it into vacation rentals was a labor of love. It is a family run business: Gramma Shirley moved out of her home in order to convert the house to vacation rentals. Cousin Laura is the Property Manager and Concierge. Nephew Jon sometimes handles reservations (I do too) We all enjoy and appreciate our very special guests. PS -- we don't really speak 19 languages but we can google translate like crazy. Inga Frick (owner)

                          Why Downtown:
                          Our family were renters in the house for 40 years before we were able to buy it in 1993. My grandfather ran a washing machine repair business in the house. Our grandfather was 'Papa Duck' to all the children in the family. Thus The 3 DUX!

                          The Unique Benefits at this House:
                          A beautiful home in a convenient location run by good people.
