Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: I am retired microchip engineer. Used to live in MA and decided completely change my life - so I am here. Spent 6 months and tons of money to renovate this house, furnished it with museum quality furniture, brand new kitchen, covered lanai, jacuzzi, private botanical garden (planted over 100 exotic fruit trees), etc.

Why the Owner Chose Fern Forest:
The main reason to buy this house was it's location in the woods. House is big, cozy and very light - huge windows around the house make feeling that it is floating in the air. Nice breeze, chilly evenings, no mosquito make living here very enjoyable.

The Unique Benefits at this Bed And Breakfast:
Secluded setting, wildlife around, but not too far from civilization if you need something. Close to Volcano and other unique places.
