Yesterday's Inn

I had the wonderful opportunity to make a B&B visit today at Yesterday’s Inn in Spearfish, SD while touring the Black Hills.  I met the owner who unfortunately informed me that they are closing at the end of August!  How sad I was since this is a very cool property in the heart of Spearfish.  She was very kind and said she would be happy to share Amazing Innkeeper Relief, LLC information to other area owners that she has been working with for years.

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!

Another corner mansion right downtown in Dubuque is the Redstone Inn.  The wonderful Victorian architecture is striking to look at! I walked up the curved stairway with a custom cast iron railing and entered through solid wood front doors.  I walked in to the entryway and was greeted by Claire, the niece of the owner.  She was very gracious and took my Amazing Innkeeper Relief information to pass on to Robert, the owner, when he gets back.  I quickly explained that I am a certified interim innkeeper and available when they need time away.  I gave her a package of my baked treats to enjoy and will wait anxiously to return when they want help!

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!

A change of pace today headed me westward ho.  Off to Dubuque, Iowa where my first stop downtown was The Mandolin Inn Bed & Breakfast.  This beautiful, Edwardian Inn is located on a corner lot and has a very inviting, wrap-around front porch.  Unfortunately, my hopes of introducing Amazing Innkeeper Relief was not going to happen today because no one was home when I stopped by.  I left my card at the front door for the innkeeper, Amy Boynton.  Lucky for me, she did find my note and called me later in the afternoon.  On my way home, I did get to chat very briefly with her by phone so she is aware that a certified interim innkeeper is not far away and available to help her out when she needs a break.

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!
