The truth- we’re a little quirky, completely genuine, with dispositions well-suited to the myriad challenges, demands, and joys of hosting visitors in a 100+ year old house. We chose Innkeeping as our latest adventure because we enjoy hosting people. We chose Kalamazoo because of the many and varied experiences it offers. And we chose this property because we appreciate the skill and craft that went into constructing this grand old lady. Since 2009 we have been making people feel welcome, helping them discover Kalamazoo, and working to restore this beauty, and secure her preservation for another 100 years.
Dana is unrelentingly optimistic, full of Midwest perkiness with a healthy dose of Presbyterian pragmatism. She is a reader, constantly learning new skills, admires creativity, prizes a sense of humor, and those who are quick witted and kind. Her personality is reflected in the décor, the breakfasts, and the many books scattered throughout the Inn.
You are welcome to ask about our travels, parents (or grandparents!), past careers, military service, or Chris’ time on the NCCGC (National Competitive Cheese Grating Circuit).
But really, we’d much rather hear about you, your adventures and plans, and the world outside Kalamazoo.
