Our Story

Accent on Travel has been serving its family of clients since Annette & Rick Stellhorn entered the travel industry in 1989. Rick found his passion for travel on a world cruise – compliments of the US Navy.  Annette was the consummate travel researching child as she tracked her older brothers around the world. Together, and in the same year they married, they set a goal to work together enriching peoples lives through travel. 

Today, Annette & Rick are surrounded by like-minded travel professionals who use their travel knowledge and worldwide connections to create gemstones of vacations for their clients. Like Annette & Rick, the Accent on Travel team travels the world themselves to experience the variety of travel experiences we offer to our clients. 

Whether you are extremely well traveled or just starting to take that much-deserved vacation, Accent on Travel is here to help. 

The Accent On Travel Difference


What do we bring to the table that is ‘different’ from you handling it all yourself?  
  • We know how you should be treated and are there to make sure that happens.
  • We know the ‘ins and outs’ of how each travel company works and the ‘contacts’ to make sure you receive the best service possible and an easier travel experience.
  • We have exclusive relationships with thousands of cruise & tour companies giving you added “perks” that would normally not receive which are also combinable with past traveler benefits.
  • We “send off” our travelers and look forward to hearing about the journey when you return. 


Our expertise and vacation management options are as unique as you.  We can help you plan: 
World-wide custom itineraries & guided tours
Small ship & river cruising
Expedition cruises & safaris
