Kathleen once said, "Most of the people that stay at our B&B are here to celebrate a momentous occasion. I feel blessed and honored to be a part of it, and make sure they`re completely taken care of on their big day! We`ve had many jobs in our lifetime, but always seem to come back to the hospitality industry. It seems that`s just what we do best!"
