If I had to describe myself with one word it would be artist - a visual artist and an artist with words. My artwork is included in Ohio Online Visual Arts Registry. I'm working with various galleries in the Midwest to promote my oil paintings and abstract light photography.

Stay in a Caboose at Fiddlestix Village in the Hocking Hills

Romance of the railroads

© Becky Linhardt 2016

Some people LOVE trains – including innkeeper Sue Maxwell who owns a bed and breakfast in Nelsonville, Ohio near the Hocking Valley Scenic Railroad Depot as well as an collection of historic buildings in the nearby Hocking Hills that she organized as Fiddlestix Village where you can stay at the original farmhouse or small themed cottages, overnight in a former General Store, or enjoy the cozy comforts of her most recent addition – a CABOOSE.

Buckeye Power’s Country Living magazine accepted Fiddlestix Village as a topic for its June 2016 online stories.
