The thought of owning and running a bed and breakfast has always been an interest of mine and the Bob Newhart Show made it my dream. Where else can you do something that you like doing, live in such a beautiful city as Williamsburg and get paid for doing it. I didn’t just jump in and expect people to be knocking down my door, I was fortunate to be able to work for a friend, who just happened to be opening her own B&B here in Williamsburg as well. Although it was a lot larger than mine, I knew what I was getting myself in for. A little hands-on experience is absolutely necessary.
My husband Joe enjoys cooking as much, if not more, than I do. We’ve always been active in various gourmet groups and the thought of cooking for people seemed like fun. Although he does travel with his job, staying in B&B’s whenever possible, he finds time some mornings, and most weekends to help me in the kitchen.
The breakfast experience is quite elegant. The table is set with crystal, fine china, silver, and is candlelit for your enjoyment. You’ll awaken to fresh fruit, juice, coffee, tea, hot chocolate, variable mouth-watering entrees, homemade pastries, and sizzling hickory-smoked Virginia bacon, ham, or sausage. You won’t go sightseeing around Williamsburg hungry!
