The Chulews – Mike, Rebecca and 2-year-old Veronica – recently went on a summer vacation for practically free.

Nowadays the multi-million dollar industry, supported by research and development in aroma-materials, creates hundreds of new scents each year. In this module the participants will learn how something as shapeless. They will learn how professionals transform ideas and visions into scents, and they will smell some of the greatest examples of the perfumers’ art, including the legendary fragrances in their original formulations.
Fire was lit when we arrived, with water trickling in the creek, and fresh flowers on the table. Great, cozy bedding and everything we needed in the kitchen. Amazing touches to make us feel welcome to this great retreat! Our kids (4 and 2 years old) loved the property, and were expert trail-blazers by the end. Short drive for coffee and pastries at the Cazadero bakery, and skip, hop and jump to the beach and amazing coastal scenery! Pure bliss!
Jodi and I have been to Myrtle Beach, SC for our honeymoon. And, we recently came back from Haiti for a vacation/mission trip. We’ve taken a few trips with our children to visit family. But, we’ve never gone on a trip for the purpose of vacation with all our children. So, we’re super psyched up about it. It will be a lot of fun.

Our guesthouse is a great space for families wanting a mini holiday without travelling far from the city or perfect for couples visiting the local area who want to be close to amenities.
Just where IS Shaver Lake? It’s in the Central Sierra Nevada mountains, one hour North East of Fresno, two hours South of Yosemite, and surrounded by seven lakes. It’s about half-way between San Francisco and Los Angeles at an elevation of 5,500 feet above sea level. At this elevation it has an average daytime temperature of 75 degrees in the summer, even when it is over one hundred degrees in the San Joaquin Valley below, and yet it is cold enough in the winter to receive enough snow to make it a winter wonderland. The permanent residents number a few hundred, rather the 50,000 that populate the Tahoe Basin.
