Special Guests

We are lucky enough to get some of the nicest people as guests of our inn.  Last week we were speechless at the number of people that sent messages to us when we lost Blarney.  It was lovely seeing all the pictures, videos, etc that our prior guests sent us.  Though we only had Blarney with us for a year, he had a very sweet and playful personality that our guests responded to.

This week we had a wonderful family with 2 young girls stay with us.  All of the family were animal lovers and had found out about Blarney.  The two girls wanted to do something to make us feel better, so they made us the small wooden horse whose picture graces this blog entry.  We are sure that we have the nicest and most thoughtful guests!

Earlier this month we were graced with the opportunity to host several people connected to the History Channel show "Top Gear USA."  What a fun group they were!  The cast, producers, directors, production assistants, and everyone involved in the show and filming were great to work with.  We had 6 days worth of hard working young people with loads of creative energy flowing around us.  It was an exhilarating experience and we look forward to seeing the finished product.  The show will revolve around log trucks and it will probably be on TV in mid-July. 

Our guests often ask us if running a B&B is hard work.  It is, but it is also fun and our guests make it all worthwhile.


  1. Just watched Top Gear Off Road Big Rig filmed in Washington. I believe "the shortcut through a small town on the way to Port Angeles" was Forks! I'm almost certain I recognized your beautiful home and the pasture full of elk next door in the areal footage. Did you know the person whose truck and boat got side swiped with the rig full of logs on the narrow roads? Very scary! But the guys were fun, bet you all had a great time hosting them.

  2. Yes, it was Forks where they did some of the filming and no we didn't know whose truck and boat got crunched. They crew was a lot of fun. They put in really long days and it is amazing how much filming is done for 1 episode.
