We’ve decided that the best thing we have going for us at Inn on Main Street is a few thousand satisfied guests.
When we started innkeeping, we hadn’t fully comprehended what it would be like to have people visiting our home during some of the most sensitive times of their lives. They’re here for honeymoons, babymoons, engagements, their children’s weddings, and even to fulfill their bucket lists as time grows short. We’re moved to be bystanders and facilitators for these special occasions, and try to remind ourselves how important it is help our guests make their visit the best it can be.
One of the most common reasons for a romantic getaway is to celebrate an anniversary. Often the couple is in their 20′s and leaving a baby with the grandparents for the first time. Other times the anniversaries are milestones like 25 years, 40, 50 or more, monuments to a rock-solid commitment that has weathered years of changes. For those folks celebrating because they made the right choice in a mate, we’ve begun a gallery of anniversary pictures on our Facebook page. If you’ve celebrated your anniversary at Inn on Main Street, please send us your picture and we’ll post it on our new gallery.
And at our super son-in-law’s suggestion, we plan to create another gallery: Photos of babies who visited us en utero as their parents celebrated a babymoon, and also of babies conceived at Inn on Main Street. If only those walls could talk!
