About the owner: Rob and Norma Hodges, Owners of The Gunn House, have lived in Kelseyville for over 30 years. They are both interested in Antiques and operated a store (One Man's Junk) in the same location for many years.
Why the Owner Chose Kelseyville: Both Rob and Norma took vacations to Lake County frequently; Norma to Clearlake - Rob to the Oaks. Both fell in love with the diversity of the county; especially the rural atmosphere and warm, friendly people. They met in 1990; 7 years before purchasing The Gunn House. They know if you come to Lake County once; you will return for another adventure.
The Unique Benefits at this House: People tell Rob and Norma how they feel a 'warm energy throughout the house'. This is true. Norma feels as if she knows the Dr. who had this house built in 1925. He saw his patients there and many elderly locals were born in Dr. Gunn's office; which is now a Media Room. At one time the house was used as an excellent school for local children - Hodge Podge Lodge. From it; many local young adults have learned about the arts. This house emulates good energy.
