Archive for the ‘Introduction to Innkeepers’ Category

Over Father’s Day weekend I attended the Fyr Ball in Ephraim.  We stayed at the Village Green Lodge where the innkeepers, Sue and Steve Sherman, took very good care of us! The breakfasts are devine and the weather behaved nicely.  I introduced the services of Amazing Innkeeper Relief to Sue and she was delighted to know about my business of helping owners take time away from the hectic life of an innkeeper. They have such a comfortable setting and the perfect location, I’d love to have the opportunity to step in when they need some time off.

A few miles out of the hustle and bustle of Dubuque is the small town of Durango, Iowa.  If you’re looking for a serene and peaceful surrounding, Quiet Walker Lodge is it!  Driving up the hill on the gravel road as you come around the bend is this magnificent lodge that appears.  The owner, Linda, came out on the balcony when I pulled up to greet me!  She gave me a quick tour of the lodge starting in a common area where there is a waterfall and koi pond available for all to enjoy!

I would certainly love to be the innsitter here when Amazing Innkeeper Relief services are requested to give Carol and Mike Chalberg, the innkeepers, a break!

Up the hill on the bluff was my next visit to the Hancock House Bed & Breakfast Inn.  Wow!  What a breathtaking view of Dubuque and the Mississippi River from the front porch!  Susan, the owner, invited me in so I could drop off my Amazing Innkeeper Relief information for her perusal.  They have run this B&B for 16 years and it sounds like they have a busy, Mother’s Day weekend booked too.  Susan was very kind to briefly visit with me about where they like to travel to when they take time off.  She agreed that you never know when you might need help or want to take some time off.  I’d be happy to come back and discuss any innsitting possibilities another day when things slow down some!

My last stop in Milwaukee yesterday was incredibly fun!  I pulled up to the Schuster Mansion bed & breakfast to all kinds of activity.  I was greeted by the very upbeat and pleasant owner/proprietor Laura Sue Mozier, as new carpeting was being brought in for the dining room!  In the midst of furniture moved around to accommodate laying the carpet, she instantly invited me in for a tour.  This property is full of history and has been beautifully renovated, room by room.  Her experience as an interior decorator has brought such beauty to this mansion.  They are holding a high tea this afternoon (first Thursday of every month) that would be wonderful to experience.  Laura Sue is full of life and information about this home and the area.  Even the family pets, Isaac and Winston, were happy to show me their ballroom home on the top floor!  This would be a really cool place to innsit, and Amazing Innkeeper Relief will be ready when a well-deserved vacation is scheduled here at the Schuster Mansion!

This week’s B&B visits started out heading east towards Milwaukee.  Since it was the first sunny day in a while, I turned off the interstate, drove through the city of Oconomowoc and found my way to The Inn at Pine Terrace.  A prestigous-looking mansion, I rang the doorbell and innkeeper, John Gresley, happily invited me in!  We briefly chatted about Amazing Innkeeper Relief and the work of an interim innsitter.  I gave him an idea of the services that I provide and he seemed glad to know I am certified.  My innsitting experience will come in handy when they need some time off from the Inn.  Hopefully I’ll be contacted for an assignment here soon!

My next visit on this fine, last Monday in April was at Pedal’rs Inn Bed and Breakfast.  A glorious property on the Glacial Drumlin State bike Trail in Wales, I was greeted by the proprietor, Dee Nierzwicki, who immediately invited me in!  As we sat in the living room discussing Amazing Innkeeper Relief services, I also got the chance to meet their beautiful daughter, Alyse, on her way out the door.  While sharing about other Bed and Breakfasts in the area, she gave me a tour of the rooms and talked about interim innsitting duties.  I look forward to talking with her again and perhaps I’ll have the opportunity to be their innsitter in the near future!

My next stop I planned to visit Kathie Fleming, owner/innkeeper at Hamilton House Bed & Breakfast.  Lucky for me, she pleasantly greeted me at the front door and promptly invited me in for a chat!  What a delightful visit we had discussing interim innsitting!  A gorgeous common area and living room accepted the sunlight through really cool, 150 year old windows.  I got the opportunity to introduce Amazing Innkeeper Relief services and a few stories of people we both have met in our industry.  I would be more than happy to be their interim innsitter and let them take a well-deserved vacation any time!
