So here we are on a Friday afternoon at 3:40 p.m. Check-ins will start streaming through the door within twenty minutes, and I haven’t even had a chance to coordinate with Stephanie about our own social calendar for the weekend–for those few hours we aren’t happily working with guests, what to do? What to do? The options are always so many.
Ever thought of being an Innkeeper? Ever wonder what it’s really like to run a ten-room inn? Me neither. At least not until early in the summer of 2014, when a mutual friend encouraged us to talk with Laurel and Terry Parrott about their intentions to sell the Kalamazoo House. Obviously we have ever since been on a crash course in innkeeping, and it’s my goal to better document that journey for those guests, family members, and friends who wish to join us as vicarious new innkeepers.
