Our home is blessed with awe-inspiring views, is a short walk from the Ancient City of Shilo ( a National Park with Interpretation Center and guided tours). You’ll love our place because of the location, the people, the ambiance, the outdoors space, the available activities : hiking, cycling, horseback riding, access to a swimming pool. Our home is good for couples, solo adventurers, families (with kids), and furry friends (pets).
Let's be frank. We are a retired couple with "Empty Nest Syndrome". Our six children have grown and left us with a beautiful home with empty rooms. We are appealing to you to help us fill those rooms, at least temporarily, with interesting and pleasant company from around the world!
Your access to the house will be through the common front door. Your room and the bathroom at your disposal both can be locked from inside for privacy.
Although we often work, most evenings we are at home and will be happy to sit on the back deck over a tea or coffee to share with you the life of a "Jewish Settler" who lives in heartland of the Biblical Land of Israel these past 45 years.
We got out of our way to provide you with information about the various sites and activities available to you during your stay. When contacted ahead of time we'll do what we can to make pre-arrangements for bike rentals, horse riding opportunities or other arrangements.
- We are Observant Jews. That means Shabbat & Jewish Festivals are strictly observed. Our home and kitchen are kosher. This does not mean that you have to be! But we do expect you to respect our customs & traditions when you are our guests just as we would respect you.
