On December 20th, 2012 Barb lost her battle with cancer. Dan was struggling with the thought of closing  the B&B (which he did for a short while) but has since decided to re-open Feb./2013.  So Barb's dream lives on. Come be a part of their dream, their years of building, growing, and seeing it become what it is today.
