About Leaf Schumann and Louise Granger
We have lived adjacent to this property for 38 years. It's wonderful. Louise is a Washington native but Leaf had to return to the NW, the birthplace of his parents, after a childhood in Southern California. We retired a few years ago after careers in nursing (Louise) and school counseling (Leaf). Our two fine sons live within striking distance in Seattle and life has been very good to us. Making the guesthouse available for travelers has proven to be a lot of fun with a surprising number of guests being international travelers. We never imagined how satisfying this whole enterprise would be.
Leaf Schumann and Louise Granger purchased this House in 2013
Why Leaf Schumann and Louise Granger chose Whatcom County
We bought it eight years ago but actually owned the property a decade earlier. This time around we had the original home removed--burned, actually, by our fire district in a practice burn--and started over.
What makes this House unique
Same benefits as exist in the whole area: quiet, secluded, ample wildlife, charm. Beavers swim up the river on occasion and we've been visited by bear and cougar. We even managed to snap a photo of both. Eagles abound and a surprising number of guests are here to photograph them during the winter salmon run. Long winter nights are made warmer with the location of a fine little brewpub up the road. Life is very good here and it's a joy to share it. A highchair and Pack 'n Play are in the closet for the use of parents of young children.
