A Very Happy Quest

I was so happy to hear that Brent and Jenn had such a wonderful time while staying with us. The best way I could share the wonderful pictures she took is to have you all read her blog post.

Four Year Anniversary

Yesterday we proudly celebrated our 4th anniversary of inn keeping at The Old Manse Inn. In the 4 years we have been privileged to own this charming establishment, we feel we have been successful in improving the level of comfort and security for our guests. Our first and biggest accomplishment was the 2009 renovations to the bar. We were fortunate to find a contractor who was willing and able to renovate, as opposed to tearing it down. In addition to adding living quarters that enable us to enjoy some downtime while still making ourselves available to our guests, we have been pleased by the popularity of our two, new, luxury king rooms. Our next project was removing all lace dollies and several dust collecting canopies. We have ripped up all the linoleum bathroom floors and replaced them with tile, many baths received new sinks. Our Chart, Captains, Blue and Peach Rooms have had full makeovers. We are fortunate to have a wonderful handy man, Antonio, who seems capable of any task. He has taken our overgrown yard and transformed it into a well-manicured garden setting.
As for the inn keeping we were again fortunate to have the former owners, Art and Judy, to guide us in our early days. We have become great friends with them and they still stop by and are wonderful inn sitters!!
We continue to enjoy this life style and love meeting such a variety of wonderful guests from near and as far away as Brazil. Argentina and New Zealand. Many have become friends along the way.
Each year has been an education and we learn so much from our guests. We are pleased to see an ever-expanding list of return customers – a sign that our hard work has been worth it.
Let’s not forget Maggie our Portuguese Water Dog who greets all our guests and warms their hearts.
We look forward with excitement to the upcoming year
