Our home was a former inn; then called the Jakobstettel! And, many, many years before that, it was the home of William Snider whose father, E.W.B. Snider owned the St Jacob's flour mill from 1870 to 1917.
We love this old home and enjoy sharing it's history, as well as the village of St Jacobs, with our friends and visitors.
The Henreich Room is on the 3rd floor. It has a king size bed and a luxury bathroom update. The bath is a love-seat bubble jacuzzi and shower. This room faces the pool side of the house.
Guests also have access to the main floor which features a dining room, parlour and lunge where you can play pool, card games, etc. There is a gas fireplace in the lounge. There is parking at our home and we are a 2-minute walk to the shops of the village of Saint Jacobs; and a 4-min drive to the Saint Jacobs Farmer's Market.
Interaction with guests
We work full time but are at home in the evenings to answer questions.
- No shoes in the house please.
I am an avid traveller. I lived 12 years abroad - in Japan and Singapore and havent spent a full year at home since! I studied religion and culture in my university days and currently teach it at a local high school. I love the outdoors and love yoga, have a scuba diving license and, this year, tried my hand at stock car racing.
I am interested in alternative and complementary health modailities, and spend much of my free time studying them. I have a certificate in cranial sacral therapy, earned in Singapore, a certificate in shiatsu massage, earned in Japan, and am working towards my specialist as a biofeedback technician, studying out of California.
My favourite quote: “The important thing is not to stop questioning. Curiosity has its own reason for existing. One cannot help but be in awe when one contemplates the mysteries of eternity, of life, of the marvelous structure of reality. It is enough if one tries merely to comprehend a little of this mystery every day. Never lose a holy curiosity.” —Albert Einstein
