Bennie's Guidebook. I'm a Memphis-born New Yorker (lived in Manhattan 1968-78, age 25-35) worked in NJ 10 years as a planner/lobbyist while studying dance, theater and pottery (evenings and weekends). The widow of artist Leonard West, I'm nowretired as the founder/executive director of a culturally-inspired community arts center. I'm creative, energetic, thoughtful and grateful for a joy-filled life filled with good food (I'm a great cook), great friends and great experiences. My favorite travel destinations are: NYC, Beaches, Mississip River & Costa Rica.
After a recent road trip to Albuquerque, NM (my first Airbnb guest experience - FABULOUS) and Sedona, I have to add both to my favorite places.
I like to greet each of my guests to welcome them to my home and hope you'll be my guest at 5Oaks.
My motto: Easy Like Sunday Morning
