1st Innkeepers: Over the years, the main house has been the residence of a number of prominent local families. Karol and Betsy Paterman acquired the main building from the owner of the Ashland textile mill in 1987 and spent almost two years redecorating as well as installing fireplaces, a commercial kitchen, and bathrooms. The Inn opened for business in 1989.
The Paterman's acquired today's Carriage House from the Shaw family in 1990. Bob Shaw had owned the building for 22 years. He wanted to spend part of the year in Florida, and needed the proceeds from the sale to buy a Florida home. The Paterman's spent over a year installing guest facilities. They earned coveted three star ratings from AAA and Mobil prior to selling.
2nd Innkeepers: Gaye and Jim Dunlop purchased the Inn in 2001. The Dunlop's transformed guest and public room décor, and added a range of amenities including fireplaces, double whirlpool baths and central air conditioning. They acquired membership in the coveted Select Registry Group.
3rd Innkeepers: The Heidenreich family acquired the inn in 2006. Their search for the 'perfect' bed and breakfast lasted 20 months and spanned five countries. Pam and Ingrid's culinary and creative skills, coupled with Glenn's global corporate experience, have equipped them to further enhance the high standards guests have come to expect. They've also secured membership in the prestigious Diamond Collection and membership in Karen Brown Guides.
