How Did This Happen?

Tuesday, April 10, 2018

Welcome to my very first ever Blog #1. If you've gotten this far, you've heard Laura's story - Her dreams and plans. Over the years she'd drag  me and friends out to various huge, old, country houses, with the idea of finding  a place  we could live in together. Honestly, looking back, I admit I was mostly  going along with her for the adventure of looking. The deal was that if we found the right place, I could help her take care of it and she would take care of me as I got older.  The fact that Sugar Ridge Inn, as we've come to call it,  was a B & B was a wrinkle that put the entire scheme into a broader perspective.   

I knew immediately upon entering the kitchen with it's 12 ft. slate hearth and  exquisite mantle that this was "home" before we'd even seen the rest of the house.  We'd asked that the owners be present and I think I'm correct in saying, we all knew pretty much before we left that day, that they'd sold their place. The nightime panic attacks eventually eased themselves away and we haven't ever had one regret.  Four months later, after a winter of two steps forward and three steps back  we can see the light at the end of the tunnel. I thought it would be amusing to share our individual journey's as Mother and Daughter and Innkeepers and Stewards of this grand and historic property in this blog.
