Happy New Year! A new year presented itself, and long-time Inn-keepers as well as newcomers to this special vocation are gearing up to do their best!
What does that mean to you, doing your best, your very best?
It has always been my privilege by participating in a valuation of your Inn to see what you really are up-to behind the façade of smiles that welcome, settle those new/or old guests once again into your milieu, your well-appointed environments with your great locally raised eggs or bacon (when possible) delicious, home-made breads, afternoon baked delicacies and dinner?
Our surprise is when we arrive and see 4 totally refurbished rooms! Gone the “cutesies”, the nick-knacks, and stuffed baskets with wilted plastic bouquets, the flowered wall-papers, the twenty pillows hard and worn on our bed! And all those new outlets for our gadgets to recharge!
Our room is spacious, clean, with a color, pleasant and appealing, paintings well chosen, appropriate for the area.
Grandmother’s attic mementos went to the antique dealer, it was a difficult decision, but once made, brought relief to all the housekeeping staff!
It’s a New Year, and yes, snow-shoeing with Chocolat through our woods this Morning, right after dawn, felt like taking care of me, it is still a priority! Best wishes to you all! Heide
