Brian and I have owned the Inn now for 11 weeks and each Wednesday we “celebrate” another “birthday”. My sister, Aimee, shared a perfect analogy for being a new innkeeper….. it is like giving birth to a first child…..interrupted days, not having time to get a haircut, being on a steep learning curve, waking up in the middle of the night worried we will run out of baked French toast at breakfast, etc. and most importantly, just like the love for a new child, we have fallen in LOVE with innkeeping!
The best part is truly the guests. In our short time we have owned the Federal House Inn, we have had such wonderful people walk thru our door. Amazingly, we have had guests from eight countries in just the two months we have owned the Inn…..China, Germany, Rwanda, France, England, India, Nigeria and Brazil. We so enjoy meeting new people from all walks of life. That is the reason we enjoyed working in international schools overseas for 10 years………..the people, the people, the people. Our inn truly feels like “home” to us.

  1. I am so glad you are enjoying your experience. My mother, Frances Buchanan owned the inn before it was a successful Bed and Breakfast. She did a lot of renovations: fixed the front porch, which sagged, and put in a new heating plant. She passed away before her dream could be realized.
    Good luck!
