It is true that there is something magical and grounding about this home—the innate atmosphere of this wonderful location provides peace, concentration, security and a desire, most of all, to write.
I came to the Porches in April. It was one of the best experiences of my life. To be able to devote myself wholly to my book in such a deep way was a profound gift.
Thank you for making this space in this world
This house is light-filled, comfortable, quiet, surrounded by mountains, and two rivers. This is a poet’s paradise. The Porches has been all I needed and more.
This summer changed my life. Thank you for the oasis you’ve created here—for your spirit, artistry, positive and loving energy. It is the retreat for the working writer. I am indebted to you and this place for helping me find my voice again.
The Porches has seen me through the completion of two novels and now, the beginning of a third, and has been a place where I’ve found inspiration and camaraderie.
How wonderful to be back at the Porches! This house has so much presence and beauty. I felt like the entire house was taking care of me while I was here. Thank you for creating such an amazing sanctuary.
