Serenity Central: A place to listen to the wind and renew your soul

Discover your own sanctuary. Whether you are looking for a place to regroup and reinvent your life, finish a dissertation, write the great American novel, or just plain relax, Serenity Central beckons.
Surrounded by pines and cedars and wrap around decks, this beautifully furnished home welcomes the exhausted traveler or escapee from the stress of raucous urban life.
The top floor is all yours with a cozy bedroom, lovely living room with fire place (propane), dining room, and modern kitchen. Most of the time, I am gone, but I would inhabit the downstairs suite if at home. You are welcome to use the laundry washer and dryer which are located downstairs, but I keep this space to myself as my own private writing nest.
Serenity Central is unique because it is one mile off I 80, near a main road, but totally immersed in cedars and oaks and has the atmosphere of rest and healing, have quiet sorties, and hike for miles in all seasons. It's also close enough to ski, alpine or downhill, raft, and just plain chill.
Reno and Lake Tahoe are up the hill and Sacramento is down the hill, if you must. And as for Gold Country, we are in the very center of it with lots of historical sites to explore.
I have no pets but would negotiate a pet(dog) which includes extra rate and deposit.
I welcome a quiet couple or single who loves nature, peace and quiet. Party animals need not apply.

About Me
I am semi-retired, having spent a lengthy career in public health microbiology. It has taken me to many parts of the globe in service with Center for Disease Control, World Health Organization and independent consultancies in Africa, India, and Central America. I am now a multi-genre author who focuses on world health issues and other topics. I have produced training videos in multiple languages and just completed co-authoring a book on pandemics. I am a seasoned traveler and honor all cultures. My video work has also encompassed documentary projects in Africa and India including voluntary work with the UN Tribunal for Rwanda and Burundi.
