Christmas Greetings from Ken and Linda and Grand
Victorian B&B!   For us that survived yesterday's 'End of the World', we want to wish you a wonderful Holiday and a Merry Christmas!   Along with our best wishes, please allow us to share some pictures of Christmas past with you, including an old Christmas Card when the B&B was known as the Richardi Bed and Breakfast.  We believe the card was crafted by past owner Barb Richards back in 1989 - .  Great Job!

Please Honor our Veterans on this day

Every year at this time we are encouraged to set aside our busy schedules and reflect on those who gave their time, their skills, their security, and (all too often) their lives for America.  Monday November 12 is the official Veterans Day for 2012 so please take time today to honor members of our military and their leaders - thanks them for the security and freedom we all enjoy.  May we not take for granted the sacrifices so many have made and please raise a prayer for our current military members and government leaders that they might not lose sight of the unique foundation this great country was built upon - May God Bless America!

Here are some snapshots of activities in and around the Inn this past Halloween.  Lisa Rames rocked the front porch while local caspers, gouls and gobblins, witches, spidermen, and ironman approached to gather their treats.  Once again, well over 100 trick or treaters made their way up the sidewalk to the Grand Victorian porch.
