Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: I am a Designer, Writer, Innovator, Dreamer, Empowered Creator, Entrepreneur, Optimist, Artist, Compassionate Consultant/Life Coach who embraces a "Tunnel Vision Approach" attitude to accomplish all of life's passions and dreams. Though I worked on the floor of the NY Stock Exchange, I also worked as Nurse, Realtor, as well as worked at my parents flower shop outside of NYC and modeled for Bonnie Kid Agency during my formative years in growing up in New Jersey. I am a student of learning, compassion and our right to be diverse, eloquent and all present in the moment my entire life. Though the road has not always been "perfect" as I would choreograph in the ballet studio and on stage, it is all perfect. Within this imperfection is where I find inspiration to give back to you. I have inspired each of my children to reach for their inner creative genius with childlike abandon; all is possible if we believe with a burning desire in the amazing silver linings and moonbeams that come our way! Believe me, there are no mistakes here, every lesson we are faced with is a valuable one. I am humbled by a life journey that has taught me to cherish each moment, each opportunity, to empower others who ever they are. To reach your highest potential always. No matter where we begin, detailed within my book, we achieve greatness by loving ourselves first, standing straight, tall, reaching out to love others and then bringing joy to even the most challenging of life situations. My goal, after my own struggles and toils, has been to help others create a magical life filled with action and accomplishment. What ever unique personality or gifts you bring to the table, your experiences and background make you five star quality for your own creative potential and momentum to achieve greatness. In the creation of a masterpiece, Makiivka Estate Farm Reserve, I share with others the beauty of the land through the creation of an idea into reality. Strive for what you believe, embrace this

Why the Owner Chose Lakeport, CA, USA:
Comments From a Treasured Guest.... “My family, friends, and I had an AMAZING stay at Makiiva Estate celebrating my birthday. Janet was a wonderful host, who made our stay so enjoyable. She was extremely communicative and offered tons of advice on activities, places to eat, etc. She even left us a bottle of wine, muffins, and even a personalized card with a very sweet note. The house was beautiful. We had plenty of room for everyone, and the many beds and bedrooms made it easy for everyone to have their own space. Our group was made up of adults and one child aged 6. The house was extremely family friendly, but had plenty of amenities that would work for just adults. The pool was simply gorgeous, the property was spectacular. The house has a hot tub that is one of the best I've seen. I honestly do not have enough space to list out all the great things about Janet's property. We would love to rent the property again in the future. Thank you Jan!! ” “Janet, Thank you so much for allowing us to use your home. We had an amazing time and we would love to rent from you again in the future. You were absolutely amazing, an A++ host, and we very much enjoyed our stay. ”

The Unique Benefits at this Farmhouse:
Though this area is considered secluded away from the bustle of the Bay Area I see this as an asset. Here, time stands still, there is a quiet that surrounds you, creativity and time are yours.... Lake County boasts the cleanest air, some of the best farm land and vineyards in Northern California. I found a place filled with natural energy and lightness to get away from it all to write, study, explore and to be an artist! I wanted to share with others "beauty" here. I wanted others to explore, find as I have all the treasures hidden within this amazing land.... Peace, quiet, vineyard setting, wineries, hiking, water sports, tennis, golf, bicycling, swimming. Visitors can swim, get in a ski boat, sail, bicycle, play tennis, hike, fish, wine taste, write a book, relax, gather or pick weeds & plant flowers! We encourage small celebrations, European open dinner gatherings, elopements, corporate retreats.
