Oh my gosh! I am so sorry that it's been since January since we last posted on our blog. Seriously, though, can you believe that we are already well into March? Time sure does fly when you are having fun, and trust me, we are having lots of fun here at The Inns at 8th and Main.
These past few months have been pretty special here. Having opened in the middle of last year, we never really got a true gage of our busy times. We also know that we are in somewhat of a special time, where people are just itching to get out and see friends and family.
We have hosted two community Open House breakfast events over the past few months, but this weekend we were blessed by hosting a special milestone birthday event for a local family. It was our first full sit down meal event, and I think we pulled it off pretty well. We so enjoyed seeing all of the guests and fellowship that went on that morning.
Having the house filled with guests, whether it is a meal guest or an overnight guest, we just love to see this home being enjoyed in the manner that it was intended. In our book, there is no better way to do that, than to share a meal around the table. A meal where stories can be shared and moments can linger.
Of course, another requirement from our book, is a meal at a table that has been properly decked out with vintage linens and fine china. Details and pretty things are a must here at the Inns at 8th and Main. They help to elevate the experience, and they also remind people to slow down, linger a bit, and savor not only the food, but the moment.
A great, new way we are encouraging this, asking our overnight guests to “Bring a Guest to Breakfast”. So many of our guests have friend and family ties to the community, and we know visits can often be rushed. So it's always a treat to be able to share a meal with family or friends during your stay. We want you to bring your guests to breakfast so that you can have everyone around the table for a leisurely, homestyle breakfast.
We find that being the local’s extra guest room is a unique way for everyone to get an opportunity to slow down, share a meal together and enjoy the visit just a little more. Also, everyone gets to have an “Inn Experience”, that will create a lasting memory.

An overnight stay is not required for us to create new relationships with our local community. This is important to us, because it will help us thrive and grow as a business. That all starts locally and that is accomplished through your experiences here at The Inns at 8th and Main.
So won’t you come and have a seat at our table, and let us be your hosts?
