Archive for the ‘Baer House Inn’ Category

woman aloneMy husband and I are going into week 3 of semi-isolation. My husband’s employer mandated that the casino and hotel where he works shut completely down on March 16th.  Since then he’s been back twice to finish up a couple of unfinished tasks, but the place is basically abandoned. Only the security crew has to stay on property during the shut down. The Baer House, too has been pretty darn quiet. We’re not on lock down, but nobody’s traveling. We have been getting daily cancellations since the second week of March. We currently have no reservations at the inn until the very first part of June. (more…)

wordsWords are weird. I’m not sure who originally decided how a word should be spelled, but sometimes I just shake my head. Seems like very few words are actually spelled like they should be. I’ve always been a pretty good speller and my grammar is probably better than average, but there are still those stupid words that jam me up every time. I stumble over words that end in le or el. Angel is not the same thing as angle. And you can’t rely on spell check to catch those mistakes. (more…)

self improvement quoteIn my continuing pursuit of individual improvement this year, I’ve been going through shelves, drawers, closets, boxes, etc. and trying to determine what is essential in my life and what can be repurposed, regifted, or plain ole thrown away. I recently blogged about decluttering and I said that I had been unsuccessful in that endeavor. However, I actually have made some progress. (more…)

change signJanuary is always a month that people resolve to do things differently or better than the way they’ve been doing them. Personally, I think people should start resolutions as soon as they realize there’s a need for change no matter what month it is, but there seems to be a lot of focus on those types of things in January.

hand with cell phoneWell folks, here we are again at the close of another year. Another Christmas to celebrate, to remember, to forget, you choose. This post was inspired because I recently downloaded a bunch of photos from my phone and discovered that I have some really nice holiday photos. Because I’m a giver, I’ve decided to share my little walk down memory lane with you. Here are some photos from recent Christmases past. Enjoy! (more…)

Many of you have told me that you like my posts about my odd inn guests. If that’s you, you’re welcome because today I’ve got another one. The people who stay here are certainly entertaining at times. There is never a dull moment when you deal with the public. Especially when said “public” often have a warped understanding about what exactly a B & B is.

I kind of have an office now. Sort of. For the past couple of years I’ve been writing either in the kitchen or the basement, neither of which are really conducive for writing. It’s been working, but it’s not comfortable. Or pretty. Sometimes you need pretty.

I hope you all had a fantastic Thanksgiving and you survived the travel and stress of the long holiday weekend. To me Thanksgiving is really just the start of 6 weeks of chaos that is known as the “holiday season.” I don’t know how others feel, but this time of year often causes me great angst. I’m always glad when January rolls around and things settle down a bit. Not that I don’t love Christmas and all of the pageantry that accompanies it, but everything seems to be operating at hyper speed through the end of the year. (more…)

That’s right folks, you read the title correctly. I had some guests who simply – disappeared. They were here and then – they weren’t.

In case you haven’t figured it out already, I own an historic home. It was built in 1870, which means, it has stairs. It also means it has no elevator. Because, guess what? There were no elevators in 1870. The first electric elevator didn’t come into existence until 1887. (That’s your history lesson for the day.) (more…)
