About Peter Ritchie

Sue & I love San Diego and enjoy all that the Southern California lifestyle has to offer. We spent our careers in the Recreation and Education industry and are still both very healthy people who enjoy exercising and sports . . . naturally, so we can still enjoy our favorite local Mexican food, craft beers and local wine!

Peter Ritchie purchased this Guest House in 1993

Why Peter Ritchie chose Lake Hodges

This was a great property for our children to grow up in and the guest house was built to accommodate their grand-mother. She lived in the guest house for 12 years and now resides with us in our new home in Encinitas. The entire property has been a labor of love over the past 24 years and the recent guest house renovation is but the last in a series of renovation projects!

What makes this Guest House unique

Our Guest House is located on a cozy seven house street that gets its name from Tanya and Tamara (the two daughters of the original street developer.) All the neighbors are very friendly and they are a good mixture of long-time and mid-time residents. We have slowly risen to be the longest tenured residents on the street but do not be afraid to knock on a neighbor's door for any assistance during your stay - they are that helpful!
