“My husband and I moved here from Richmond, Virginia, to help run my family’s inn. Guests often ask us what we do around here for fun, and I think there are plenty of things—kayaking, hiking, going to the bookstore, or just going for a drive. For me, one of the nicest things is being able to slow down and not have to get on the highway to go to work. And I love my job because it doesn’t feel like work. It’s a lifestyle.”
