About the owner: Our family has been vacationing in the North Forest Beach area for over 30 years. Our four children 'grew up' vacationing during the summer here and now join us at Thanksgiving and Christmas for family gatherings. Bill is an attorney and manages his own investment advisory firm. Jackie is a retired high school English teacher and an avid gardener. She worked hard on decorating and furnishing Monkey Business.
We have operated The Rossville Inn, a bed and breakfast in Hamiton, Ohio for the past 14 years in our pre-civil war home.
We enjoy entertaining and cooking and are avid readers and bridge players.
Jackie loves remodeling and decorating projects and it shows. She is an avid gardener.
Why the Owner Chose Private Homes: Jackie has always wanted a pool that she could 'swim laps in.' We had noticed the pool at 19 Dove two years before the house was on the market. We saw the sign, looked at the house, Jackie imagined the possibilities, we made an offer and bought the house. We then set out to make over the house to our standards and create a very comfortable environment for our guests.
The Unique Benefits at this House: We love the convenience to what we think is the nicest beach area on the island. We walk every morning and evening and have met many great people on these walks. It helps that Turbo and Diesel our standard poodles are real stand outs on the beach.
The Piggiy Wiggily Market at Coligny Plaza is so close and the service and selection are very good. We make daily trips to the seafood counter to take advantage of the deliveries of fresh local caught fish and shrimp.
We enjoy cooking, grilling and smoking in the Big Steel Keg we bought in 2010, but we do find it hard to resist going out for dinner at the many local, chef-owned restuarants like Charlie's and The Sunset Grill.
Jackie goes spinning at BreakThrough Fitness several times per week in addition to lap swimming. Family time is spent in the pool.
