A Bed of Roses Featured in OutreachNC magazine

Life as innkeepers

Life as Innkeepers...Three couples share their stories and delicious gourmet recipes

In July one of our guests revealed herself to be the editor of OutreachNC magazine, Carrie Frye. One of her writers had come up with the idea of publishing an article about baby boomers who have decided to become innkeepers. Carrie asked if she could interview us for the article and we were thrilled. The article came out in their August issue. We were one of three inns featured. All three inns were from different parts of the state and represented different stages and styles of inn ownership. We were the rookies, having only owned A Bed of Roses for a year. One couple opened their inn 11 years ago and currently live off-site. The other couple became innkeepers 4 years ago. I’ve always said, no two B&Bs are alike. That’s one of the things that makes staying at an inn a thousand times more interesting than going to a chain hotel!

Carrie, the editor, was a delightful guest and was quite taken with our cats Nadia and Sasha. She sent us lots of photos that I promise to post! In the her editor’s notebook blog from August 4th, Carrie revealed that she successfully reproduced our Orange Stuffed French Toast recipe! The recipe appears in the article as well as on our blog’s recipe section.
