I just returned from an assignment at the luxurious St. Croix River Inn Bed & Breakfast in Northwestern Wisconsin.  The views from this property are spectacular overlooking the river.  All the suites are beautiful and they have hydrotherapy tubs in every room!  Breakfast is served in the privacy of your suite too.  How nice it was to have a full house in honor of our military.  I met the nicest group of active and retired military with their spouses that were invited to stay on November 10th for the 11/11/11 Veteran’s Day celebration.  We had all branches of our military represented and boy, did they have some great stories!  I really enjoyed watching Ben prepare one of his 5-course dinners that is served on Fridays and Saturdays (by reservation only, available to the public).  I really look forward to the next opportunity to give the innkeeper some well-deserved time off here.  I will gladly jump in to return and help out!

I have confirmed another month assignment at Hill Street B&B helping Kelly and Jay Phelps.  It has been fun to use their home-grown veggies for breakfast recipes.  Since I love to bake, Kelly given me a number of her cookie and bread recipes to make to help free up some of her time.  They also have acquired a new, permanent, furry resident named Sheba!  She is the cutest, little gray cat that Caesar has taken under his paw as a new friend. Hopefully, my assistance has proven valuable enough that they’ll keep Amazing Innkeeper Relief, LLC on board for a while!

The Parsonage Bed & Breakfast

I just completed my second assignment at The Parsonage Bed & Breakfast last week and I had another wonderful experience, I as always do!  Even though the temperature was in the nineties+ every day, the new A/C system was working well!  I really enjoy cooking in the kitchen here.  Since Craig loves to cook, it is fully stocked with everything an interim innkeeper to ask for.  A new suite has been added since my last assignment that adds alot to the types of room available.  It’s on the 3rd floor, has a King bedroom, bath with shower, huge common area with queen futon and 2 twin beds under each alcove on opposite sides of the room.  TV, movies, refrigerator, round table for four and a desk complete this ‘Reverend’s Retreat’! I’ve been asked to return in several weeks so Craig and his wife, Kathy, can attend an event in Chicago.  I’m very lucky to have this property so close to my home – about 10 minutes away!  I hope they’ll continue to use my services and take alot more time off!

I just finished the first set of my assignment at Hill Street Bed & Breakfast  and a great time was had by all!  We had record-breaking heat in the nineties everyday, which makes Amazing Innkeeper Relief truly stand out as a needed service.  For the 1st week of June in Wisconsin, that’s pretty warm!  My first guest was from Minnesota and had been visiting her daughter in Appleton.  She was taking a tour of Taliesin during her stay and just needed some time to relax before heading home.  I had a couple travelling back home to Concord, MA who also wanted to see the beautiful area around Spring Green.  They scheduled a 4 hour walking tour of Taliesin on the day the temperature hit 98 degrees!  Thank goodness for air conditioning and a nice, cool glass of peach tea!  They left after a sumptuous breakfast, refreshed and ready for the long drive home.  Interim innkeeping came in very handy for the owners these past couple of days so they could take some well-deserved time off.

I have just confirmed an ongoing assignment for Kelly and Jay Phelps at Hill Street B&B in Spring Green!   I was their interim innsitter last summer and loved it!  I am so excited to return for a couple of days a week for several weeks each month through the fall.  I still have plenty of visits and contacts to make to fill the in-between days and weeks, but this ‘job sharing’ with Kelly is a great opportunity for both of us.  Amazing Innkeeper Relief is excited and honored to have a repeat client and located in such a beautiful area of Wisconsin to boot!  I am really looking forward to it!

One year ago this week I left for my first 3 month assignment at Patchwork Inn  in Illinois.  One of my most memorable innsitting assignments as an interim innkeeper to date, I had such a wonderful experience and met so many wonderful people working at this 10-room inn.  Everything from getting it organized to being on the path to many updates and improvements so guests would want to return again and again.  I can only hope I will be invited to return and help out when the Innkeepers take their well-deserved time off!
