Since buying this old octagon house in 2000, it's been a dream to open a B and B. We started in earnest 2 years ago with redoing the upstairs rooms, adding a new a bathroom with a jacuzzi tub.
We converted the upstairs hall room to an extra dining room or game room for guest use, including a small frig and microwave.
But our plans were delayed by well problems. We dug a new well that didn't have enough output, so now we are solving that problem with the addition of a storage tank in the basement. The final touches are getting done by the electrician and plumber this month. We plan to open in January, 2012 with two guestrooms and a 3 course breakfast. I'm very excited to start welcoming guests to our 1884 octagon house!
