About Carl and Valerie

Valerie and I are transplants from deep in the woods of Maine. We came here on vacation in January of 2012. We had read that people come here and hear the mountains calling them. We heard, went home, packed up, sold the house and here we are. We have never regretted our move. We are laid back, "go with the flow" people that want our guests to enjoy the peace of our property.

Carl and Valerie purchased this Guest House in 2012

Why Carl and Valerie chose Fairview

We chose this house because our land is so beautiful. When we bought it, it had been vacant for years . We have spent the past few years bringing our land back to a beautiful, park like setting. It is constantly evolving with interesting plans for the future.

What makes this Guest House unique

We are so close to a multitude of attractions, but when you come home, you are in a safe, peaceful area with views of the mountain tops. We have turkeys, the occasional cow, and chickens that wander through our yard. At night you can hear the tree frogs and owls calling. We have a large variety of birds that visit the feeders, perfect for birdwatching.
