IT HAS ALWAYS BEEN A PERSONAL DREAM OF MINE TO OWN MY OWN BED AND BREAKFAST. 

As a native western New York gal, I grew up in Brockport, NY. I attended college at Mercyhurst in Erie, PA. In 1998 I was provided the opportunity to work in Fort Worth as a Special Educator.  I continue working within the Special education field full time today and live my dream of owning a Bed and Breakfast.

As the saying goes “I wasn’t born in Texas but I got here as quick as I could.”

Each morning, I awake very early to prepare breakfast for our guests. Monday through Friday during the school year, I have my mother-in law serve our guests while I am at school. On weekends I am able to serve my guests in person and hear all about their stay and adventures in Ft Worth.

We have been fortunate to live in the Historic Fairmount District since December 2000. This is our second home to “restore” and live in.  

When we were considering buying this home, my husband and I were concerned about me being able to do the weekday breakfasts, as I have a full time job.

So we asked my husband’s mother if she would consider moving in with us from Colorado. Prior to opening the Bed and Breakfast she came to Texas to live with us and assist with serving breakfasts during the weekdays.

It has been a pleasure to serve not only our community and their families but visitors from all over the world. I am looking forward to many more years of Bed and Breakfast ownership.
