Happy New Year! 15 Jan 2012, 11:00 am

Thank you to everyone who made our first year in business such a great success!  We met so many wonderful guests (some who have become good friends as well) and can’t wait to meet many more!

As a new year begins…I would like to leave you with this quote from Sydney Smith, English Writer:

“Resolve to make at least one person happy every day, and then in ten years you may have made three thousand, six hundred and fifty persons happy, or brightened a small town by your contribution to the fund of general enjoyment.” – Sydney Smith

Will you join me?  Happy New Year!

Summer Produce is Here! 21 Jul 2011, 2:54 pm

I am so excited that the summer produce that I am growing in my garden is starting to come in!  Tomatoes, cucumbers, herbs…can’t wait to use them as part of our gourmet breakfasts!  My neighbors are also contributing!  I found a bag of zucchini and beans on my doorstop yesterday and beets/fennel today!  YUM!

Gearing Up for 4th of July! 28 Jun 2011, 8:34 am

I can’t believe that our first 4th of July weekend hosting guests is only 4 days away!  We were lucky enough to book our three guest rooms for the entire weekend – and in our first year!

I want to thank all of my neighbors, friends and family for being so supportive and for spreading the word about Bristol House!  We have received many reservations due to glorious reviews from people we know.

Special thanks to the Baron’s & the Conley’s for growing fruit and vegetables to serve at our breakfasts; the Velleca’s for moral support and for allowing their daughter to work for me this summer and to Suzanne at the East Bay Chamber for all the work she did on our Ribbon Cutting ceremony!

I am very blessed to be part of the Bristol community and to have friends/neighbors support me and spread the word about the B&B!  THANK YOU SO MUCH!

 

Grand Opening! 18 May 2011, 1:27 pm

Hello!

I am so excited that Bristol House Bed & Breakfast is finally open for business!  What started 20 years ago as just a dream, has now become my reality!  Back in January, work began on transforming my own home into what has become Bristol House.  After months of construction, painting, decorating, practicing recipes (my neighbors/friends say they all gained 10 pounds…sorry!) and putting on the finishing touches, I am proud of what has become Bristol House!

I am told the breakfasts are “to die for”!  Using techniques I learned at culinary school (as well from my own Mother and Grandmother), I have put together a menu that I hope all the “foodies” and “foodie wannabees” out there would be proud of.  I will be posting some of my favorite seasonal recipes alongside this blog.  Please try them and let me know what you think.

If your travels bring you to Rhode Island or have family/friends visiting you locally and need to put them up at a relaxing and quiet B&B…I hope you will choose Bristol House.

We are busy gearing up for the Summer season as well as the annual 4th of July festivities!  Check back frequently as I will be providing updates on Bristol House!
