Meet the Team, Howard and Kristen Dusenbery (Owner/Innkeepers), and Pam
Howard comes from a background in information systems in a fleet leasing company. His love of motorcycling and things mechanical is evident throughout the Inn. He has a flair for serving your breakfast with style and keeping you informed about what to see and where to go in the area. If it is your birthday, ask Howard to play "Happy Birthday" for you on his bagpipes.
With a background in Human Resources and Payroll, Kristen has changed gears and delights in coming up with breakfast entrees. You will notice that some of her doll collection is displayed through out the Inn. She also enjoys crafts and flower arranging.
Pam is our classic right hand person. So much more that our housekeeper, she assists us in all aspects of the Inn. We could not live without her.
