                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2001

                      About the owner: I moved to Yellow Springs in 1972 as a young single mom and have lived in this wonderful little eclectic village ever since. Since living in Yellow Springs I have worked as a cook, carpenter, coordinated our community mediation program and most recently served as the Executive Director of our local affordable housing organization and Community Land Trust. I am now semi-retired. I enjoy gardening, biking, yoga, music, reading, remodeling projects and serving on nonprofit boards. My partner Patti Dallas grew up in Yellow Springs where her father was chair of the Theater Dept. at Antioch College. She moved away to go to college and has lived in British Columbia and on the West and East Coasts before moving back with her young daughter in 1996 to be closer to her aging parents. Patti is a musician specializing in music for children and seniors. She is also a videographer whose videos focus on family and community history. Patti sings and plays the guitar, banjo and flute. We enjoy sharing our love of Yellow Springs with our guests.

                      Why the Owner Chose Yellow Springs:
                      The Village Guesthouse is a small apartment attached to our house. Originally we remodeled it for Patti's parents when they were no longer able to live independently. Once Patti was no longer able to give them the care they needed, they moved to our nearby continuing care facility. We then decided to rehab the apartment as a short-term stay rental. We made that decision because Yellow Springs has become a popular destination an needed more places for visitors to stay. We enjoy meeting new people and felt we could provide a service that is enjoyable for our guests and for us.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
                      Yellow Springs is a small progressive inclusive community. A village of about 3700, it has been shaped by Antioch College whose first president was Horace Mann. Many Antiochians have chosen to make Yellow Springs their home and have started businesses here, raised their children here and have helped create this vibrant community. Yellow Springs has a rich African-American tradition since Civil War times and has been known as a tolerant, open community. In recent years our village has become known for its many artists, artisians and galleries. In addition, there is a strong community interest in sustainability which has led to pioneering efforts in 'green building', Community Supported Agriculture (CSAs), Farmer's Markets, and alternative health care. Massage, yoga classes, fitness instruction, and Buddhist mediation are all easily available. (Contact us for scheduling appointments and classes.) The Village Guesthouse is only a couple of blocks from Antioch College, our very social and friendly downtown, a 60+ mile bike path, and miles of hiking trips that connect Glen Helen Nature Preserve with John Bryan State Park and Clifton Gorge. There is always something to do in Yellow Springs and villagers and visitors have the pleasant task of deciding whether to go to a hear area musicians at a local coffee house, see the latest foreign or American movie at the Little Art Theater, eat at the award winning Winds Restaurant, visit an art opening, attend a play or lecture or just take a walk around the neighborhood, downtown or the Glen.
