Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

About the owner: Your hosts, David & Diane Rose, are long time Palmerites who enjoy hiking, camping, hunting. David built Rose Ridge himself and Diane has an extensive knowledge of the area and its history. We have 2 grown daughters, one granddaughter, and an energetic Jack Russell Terrier, Piper, who enjoys the guests.

Why the Owner Chose Palmer:
We have grown up in the area and wanted a piece of it to share with others. We bought this property in 2001 to expand our B&B business on the adjoining property. In 2010 we sold the B&B property and moved exclusively to this 10 acres to offer vacation homes to our guests.
