We always try to be enviromentally conscience. We reuse when we can, recycle as much as possible and reduce consumption of unnecessary materials. We collect rain water to water our flowers and vegetables. Real glasses and cloth napkins beautify our breakfast table as well as making it less wasteful.
This old house was constructed in 1890 and has lived a wonderful life and expects to live a lot more. It has good bones and has had the good fortune to have had fine people that have cared for it thru the years, getting a face lift now and than. It has all new windows, doors, pillars and railings, the list goes on and on.
The first family that dwelled within was a minister, his wife and children. This was the parsonage for the church across the street. Next came Dr. Mc Donald, his wife and their 10 children. This was the doctors practice, as well as his residence. In 1959, a contractor, Ottaviano, Dave to his friends, his wife Camilla, Peggy to hers, and their 5 children lived here. After Peggy and Dave, passed away their daughter, Linda came home and she and Jim, opened this B&B.
The families that have lived here were hardworking and a joy to be a part of. Many children have grown up here and moved on. The occasions that have been held in these walls, have been memories born of happiness and sorrow.
