From the time we first got married, Tom and I shared the dream of someday owning a bed and breakfast. When circumstances gave us the chance to start a new career, we finally decided that we should quit talking about owning an Inn and buy one.
And we love owning and operating the Oliver Inn.
One of the reasons we chose the Oliver Inn is that it is both elegant and comfortable. We want our guests to experience relaxation from the moment they walk in the front door. We usually have quiet music playing, and we bake fresh chocolate chip cookies every afternoon. In the morning, we serve a candlelight breakfast with background music from our grand piano. There are no clocks in our dining room, and our guests can relax and forget about the outside world for a short time.
Most of us lead very chaotic lives, running here and there for meetings and errands. It’s rare that we take the time to relax. Let me challenge you to take some time this week to turn off the blaring TV and turn on some quiet music. Light candles at breakfast. Sit and visit where there are no clocks and just be with your sweetheart—or enjoy a moment alone to rejuvenate.
If you would like to practice your relaxing skills we’d love to host you here at the Inn. Any time of the year is a good time to have a getaway from the world. www.oliverinn.com.
