On Friday, August 28th we had the pleasure of hosting the wedding reception for Brooke Rogers and Tucker Kelley here at the Inn. A number of family members were staying in-house that night including Emily Kelley, the groom’s mother. She arrived around midday to check in and I escorted her up to her room.

About a week ago I was walking through the hotel as I do every day I’m here and noticed a fairly sizeable scratch in the gloss black paint of the door to one of our guest rooms. The room wasn’t going to be occupied so I asked Patricio, our maintenance man, to touch up the paint. Being the kind of person who goes above and beyond whenever he’s given a task Patricio took the initiative to touch up the scratches on every guest room door. The hotel was about 75% occupied at the time and everyone was getting dressed and ready to head off to a wedding rehearsal. A short time later one of our guests—...
