We want you to know how much we have appreciated your staying with us at Inn at the Park; so many of you have become extended family and this has been so important to us. We have decided that 2015 is our last year running our B&B, which is actually for sale. If we do not sell the Inn, in 2016 May-Sept we be renting separately the entire Champagne Cottage, consisting of 3 bedrooms, 3 private baths and a hospitality center Sat-Sat for 6 people with children any age. We will rent through VRBO # 660515. The main house we will rent as another separate rental consisting of 3 bedrooms, 4 baths, living room, and dining room with a small hospitality center Sun-Sun for 8 people with children 12 and above. We will also rent through VRBO, but do not have a # at this time. There will be no amenities or food service in the Champagne Cottage or Main House. We will remain in our existing living area while renting the two units. Oct-April we will be in our recently purchased condo near our grandchildren and their parents in Austin, TX. Last winter was just too cold for Jay in Cape May.

Inn at the Park Highlights
We are thoroughly enjoying our returning guests taking advantage of our "last hurrah" special . The closure is most important to us after 15 years. We continue to also enjoy our new guests. In 2016 we hope to see new and returning guests in our separate weekly rentals in the Champagne Cottage and Main House May-September.
We hope to enjoy Aruba again in 2016 with family and by ourselves. For a week in July we celebrated our 50th Wedding Anniversary with some of our wedding party, family, and friends. We had a Mass at Our Lady Star of the Sea and a fantastic brunch at Tisha's topped off with the best anniversary cake made by our favorite local French baker. This summer we had a great Turkish helper, Yunis, who was a jack-of-all trades and master of all. He cleaned and fluffed rooms, did breakfast clean up and dishes, painted, mowed the lawn, weeded, etc. Estella is now in 3rd grade and loving gymnastics and Sutton, who placed in the advanced Quest Program, is in first grade and just loved his cooking class. Jay can't wait to cook with him in Texas. It was 100 degrees for their first day of school. Ellen and Greg started a children's specialty shoe business called Moosho Trainers. Maria helped at the Inn this summer and telecommuted for her job. She now has a new position at the Gerontological Assoc. in DC. Tim's MD plumbing business is booming so he bought a second truck for the master plumber he hired. Tim's contact information is phone number 301-648-9676 and TimWhistlerPlumbing.com. Anne has a new job in the Financial Aid Dept. at Dutchess Community College. Anne, Maria, and Mary Ann enjoyed a day at the US Open in Queens, NY; Jay stayed home with Pearl, Maria's dog, as it was just too hot to travel for him.
