About Bek Nelson

Hi - Great to "meet" you!

I'm Bek with many labels. Some of them include Mom to three delicious kids, wife to a fabulous husband and manager of my own business. Some others include: chef, yogi, gardener, hermit, dancer, playmate and adventurer.

I love to be creative. This shows up mostly in the kitchen, garden and organizing fun (and sometimes silly ;) events and experiences for my friends, family and of course myself! I love pretty much anything outdoors: gardening, skiing, cycling, hiking, swimming and kayaking. My quiet side loves reading, yoga, chocolate meditation and snoozing in the sun.

I'm originally from England, I traveled the world for business and pleasure (mostly both :) and finally settled in the USA (Indiana) in 2006. I love the heartland for it's easy going people, relaxed pace and quality of life. I love our local countryside with wide open spaces, zero rush hour and being just 15 minutes to the beautiful lake Michigan.

I love Richmond-upon-Thames for its easy access to shops, restaurants, cafes, bars, numerous parks and of course, the riverside. I love that I can enjoy the relaxed, fun pace in Richmond and be in central London in 15 minutes.

As a host, I'll be as hands on or hands off as you need/want. I'm happy to help wherever I can to help make your stay at any of our properties delightful!

Have a fabulous day!

Bek

We will be back!

  • 5 of 5

We were charmed be the superior decor and appliances and sheer extravagance in top quality elements. This is our second stay. This time, weather permitted a better exploration of the place (rained a lot last year), and my grandkids were delighted to see the big tent on the edge of the wood, and the flowers and many trees, a hammock, a cute storage bldg that looks like a old time store, that all make for fun photo ops and a nicely furnished deck with a fire pit for s'mores (which the owners were kind enough to provide the marshmallows etc!) The master suite is up in a loft and it's lovely. However there are a lot of steps, so it might be rough for elderly, toddlers or handicapped. They are pet friendly, which is great of those of us who travel with a pet. If you take a dog out for pee time at night, you might prefer to have a good flashlight, since there are stone steps and the property is sloped. Not good in the dead of night leading a dog around on a leash. Owners are not intrusive. They leave you alone, but live very nearby, if you need them. All in all, a high end vacation home for families or for a 'gal's weekend or such.There is that master in the loft with a king, and two more bedrooms on the first level , one with a double bed and one with twins (with living on the middle level with kitchen) Very very nice!

2nd year here, and even better than last time

  • 5 of 5

My group of 10 friends just spent our second year for our annual get-together here and everything was perfect. The property is in a great location, and very comfortable. Rebekah is an amazing host and made sure everything was taken care of and we had a great experience! We hope to be back for a 3rd year later!

Perfect setting

  • 5 of 5

We arrived Christmas Day and Rebekka had a fire going,the house was warm, there was snow on the ground, she even had a Christmas tree and bottle of wine to greet us! It was the perfect way to celebrate with our family. The setting is great and there were plenty of things to do in the area from lunch at the Stray Dog, a trip to the casino and shopping. All in all it was our relaxed vaca with family and friends over good food, games and conversation. Perfect! Great host!

Wonderful Thanksgiving!

  • 5 of 5

What a terrific location to spend Thanksgiving. Bek was so thoughtful in so many ways from chocolates on the pillows to fresh flowers on table. She even provided us with a turkey roasting pan. The kitchen was fully equipped for making Thanksgiving dinner. The location was convenient for three families to meet.

The barn is decorated beautifully. We all enjoyed ourselves. We highly recommend The Barn.

Fantastic house and owner

  • 5 of 5

The house is awesome, very big and well maintained. Bek is fantastic. She is super responsive and helpful leading up to and during the stay. Her attention to detail and thoughtfulness is demonstrated by the case of beer and chocolates that welcomed us as we first entered the Barn. I highly recommend this house and owner!
