Our first weekend

Well our first weekend is behind us - and I just want to say, it was a blast! Let me tell you all about it, but first, an introduction. We are the new Innkeepers, Valerie and Eric. And joining us are my parents, Victor and Victoria. We are the new Journey Inn - just as wonderful as the old Journey Inn of course!

After two weeks of frantic unpacking, decorating, landscaping, cooking - we opened to a full house. We had folks from New York, New Zealand, Pennsylvania, Florida, and Ohio. Some were just getting away for a weekend, others on a tour of the east coast, some folks taking a course at the Culinary Institute of America, and two sisters just wanting to spend some time together. And a good friend who wanted to share our first weekend - thanks Liz and Charlie!

What a great weekend it was. The weather was beautiful; the conversation was lively and fun. I do believe a great time was had by all. Our first breakfast was herbed scrambled eggs with roasted asparagus, blueberry muffins, local breakfast sausages, and strawberries with crème fraîche and brown sugar. I will never forget that first meal.

On Saturday, a nice glass of champagne was shared to celebrate the reopening and our new life as innkeepers.

Thanks to all the wonderful guests who helped make it such a memorable weekend.

Well today is the day, April 11,2013 that the keys have been passed from us, the old and original owners to the new owner of Journey Inn Bed & Breakfast.And what a day is has been! 

This morning, as we did our final walk through,so many memories came flooding back. It has been a fabulous and glorious adventure these past 16 years and now it is time for new eyes and fresh ideas to make their own impact and we know she will!
If she has half as much fun, laughter,and joy mixed in with those...'oh what do we do" moments, she will have a blast.
We have met the most amazing people during our stewardship and learned so much from our guests. We have always said that we have be so fortunate to have the best guests and that is what makes this business so special.

We wish her and all future guests a warm and comfortable stay @ Journey Inn Bed & Breakfast and may they return again to the Hudson Valley.
