Because the potential buyer will likely have their own furniture, our plans and pricing is based on our taking the furnitue in the innkeeper’s living quarter’s but leaving the double washers and driers that are used extensively with the Inn. In addition, items in the office will also go with the current owner. We will provide our guest email information plus other forms and assistance that they may need in their operating the Inn. Also, there are various pictures that may appear in photos that have some personal connections that we may also take.

With selling the Inn, we will greatly miss meeting so many very interesting people. As an example, we will miss a couple from Indiana who stayed with us for 2 or 3 nights each year for 14 years straight and an out-of-town businessperson who stayed usually four times a year for over 20 years.
