We’re living in uncertain times, but the one thing that we know for sure is that we absolutely love being innkeepers. We enjoy watching our guests experience everything that we’ve curated for them here at the Inns at 8th and Main. In my mind, when a new guest arrives, it’s like a Chip and Joanna Gaines reveal moment. The anticipation and excitement that they feel for their clients are like what we feel for our guests upon their arrival. It never gets old. It’s also what keeps Dan and me going.
As most of you know, we own multiple businesses and are extremely busy sometimes - especially poor Dan. Like all businesses, we have seasons, but here at the Inn, we are finding a nice, steady consistency. We are blessed to be busy, and do not take it for granted. So we have been doing some major thinking, and until we are able to become full-time innkeepers we have to make some changes.
Some things are out of our control, like the inconsistency of food availability and rising costs of just about everything. Unfortunately, it's just the times that we are living in. Nonetheless, we are planning some changes for a variety of reasons, but the real reason really goes back to the humble beginnings of our dream - to provide guests with the best bed and breakfast experience ever!
So with all of this being said, it is with a heavy heart that for now, we will suspend offering luncheons and dinners for our guests along with a few other experience packages.
Doing this really allows us to better manage our daily operations and focus more on our star attraction - breakfast. Do not worry. We will continue to offer our Bring a Guest to Breakfast experience and develop new recipes.
Discontinuing our luncheons and dinners also allows us to support our local restaurants in a bigger way. With that in mind, let me share with you a few of our newest local restaurants. We’ve had a few open in just the last few months, and we would recommend each of them. Some are within walking distance of the Inns.
Those are just a few of the new dining options you can check out while staying at the Inns. We always recommend our local favorites, Chatterbox Tavern, Triple Nickel Diner, and the Boondock's for dinner as well. For a full list of where we like to eat, click here, or consult our new welcome book app before and during your stay.
Morgan County has lots of great, independently owned and operated restaurants with more on the way. We hope you will give them a try.
And don’t forget breakfast each morning in the historic dining room at the Stone House. We will continue to do what we are good at in order to provide the best bed and breakfast experience possible. Dan will have the coffee on early, I will curate a morning meal fit for a king, and together we will cook and serve you an unforgettable homestyle breakfast.
We invite you to come stay with us!
Join my husband Dan and I as we remodel, cook, host and share an amazing life together in these old historic homes.
