During the first 10 years of their married life, Kathy and Dan lived in 12 different apartments in 3 different countries. They also traveled throughout the Western world. They understand the exhilaration of travel, the rapid succession of exciting new places, peoples, and cultures. They also know travel requires that family and home be left behind, leading at times to profound dislocation and alienation.
Every detail at the Walker House attempts to counter the alienation associated with travel. The extreme beauty of the landscaping, the Walker House itself, and the people inside the House serve as a “rooting” mechanism, where guests can feel so comfortable and “at home” that they grow temporary roots during their stay. Indeed, the Walker House is striving to become for guests the family away from family and the home away from home.
In their own words, guests describe their experience at the Walker House. Here are some comments that originate from the guest journals placed by the beds in the rooms and from letters and emails we receive related to all of our services.
“Had a great time. Excellent hospitality, great pancakes, and scrambled eggs! To be honest, if it’s like this all the way down to Louisiana, then we’ll be back to the U.S. sooner than later! Thank you both for your warm welcome and all the best for the future.” -M. & C. – Switzerland More
