About Gene Thornton
We are a retired couple who served in the military after almost three decades of traveling around the world and living all over the United States. I, Gene, grew up outside Middletown DE, attended Washington College in Chestertown MD before entering the Army in 1973. I did personnel and public affairs. My husband, Don, was a Jersey boy who attended West Point and served in the Infantry with an alternate of Operations and Training. We volunteer for the American Heart Association, the Association for Frontotemporal Degeneration, belong to several philanthropic, veterans, and conservation organizations. My mom passed on in February 2016 . She wanted me to "make a little rental unit" over my garage to share our property with others. You will be enjoying her furniture when you stay with us. You will be honoring her request and I hope you will feel like you are at home.
Gene Thornton purchased this studio in 2000
Why Gene Thornton chose Frederica
We fell in love with our house the moment we saw it because the view of the lake reminded us of the State of Washington where we had once been assigned. We entertained our mothers, our sisters and their families quite a bit when we first moved here. We spent a lot of love and labor improving the property. But now, the moms have passed on, the sisters have moved on and their families are having families of their own and none of them are nearby. We want to continue sharing our quiet location and beautiful lake with others.
What makes this studio unique
You can only glimpse the lake from inside the unit, but you are welcome to use the outside of the home as if it were yours. Decks, docks, canoe, stand up paddle-boad, swim, fire-pit, try your luck with the Big Green Egg! (all at own risk, of course!). Its dark and quiet here, you will be tucked away in a forest. Join us in celebration of birds, ducks, geese, frogs and if you are lucky, you might see an eagle, blue heron, osprey, beaver or an otter while you are here.
