As new guests arrive, we as innkeepers, always anticipate the stories and special interests they might share.
On two recent occasions, guests surprised us with special entertainment. We had a wonderful private mini concert on piano and violin in our guest living room. We learned that their lives had come together through music and that they have continued to use their talents over many years together.
Another couple came to to our B&B to participate in a story telling event at Champoeg State Park near us. At breakfast, we heard about their passion for historical re-enactment and that they spend their summers at encampments and historic events. They came to breakfast dressed in their period costume and ready to portray local history. He also played some folk tunes for us on a banjo made from a gourd.
