We are grateful for the wonderful space we have and alarmed by the many people, especially refugees who do not even have a home. But what can we do from the US? Upshot: the money we raise from rental will be sent to the highly respected International Rescue Committee.
We offer you a one bedroom apartment, a queen sized sofa-bed, fully equipped kitchen, woods, river and operating vineyard, wineries, covered bridges, Cleveland (45min)
Would you like to join us in this effort of compassion

Other things to note
We want to welcome you to our home. We built the In-Law Suite some 35 years ago. It provided independent living for Rita's mother for 12 years. Recently we have updated it because we would like to provide travelers, business persons, and tourists an opportunity to have a unique and enjoyable experience. Additionally, you know that the money you pay for your housing is also paying for the needs of some of the world's most seriously distressed peoples. Come and enjoy our space. You will not be disappointed.
The International Rescue Committee responds to the world’s worst humanitarian crises, helping to restore health, safety, education, economic well being, and power to people devastated by conflict and disaster. Founded in 1933 at the call of Albert Einstein, the IRC is at work in over 40 countries and 26 U.S. cities helping people to survive, reclaim control of their future and strengthen their communities. More than 80 years after Einstein helped create the IRC, the number and intensity of humanitarian crises across the globe warrant a dose of Einstein-inspired innovation.
While the Syrian displacement case is unique – it is currently the largest in the world with 11 million people displaced, and receiving regular news coverage – it is by no means the only case worth noting. There are 61 other major displacement crises, including famine, conflict, natural disasters etc. In fact, 2016 marked a new record: 65 million people displaced globally – the highest since World War II.
