Kris and Lisa

We have talked about opening a bed and breakfast for the last 15 years, but only began pursuing it seriously in 2004.

It seemed a perfect transitional retirement. A bed and breakfast was the ideal combination of our passions and skills. We enjoy traveling and making new friends and in combination with our love of good food and wine, a b&b was the perfect match.

Kris retired in March with nearly 35 years working for the US Fish and Wildlife Service. An avid freshwater fisherman, he’s looking forward to practicing his skills and learning new ones on the Chesapeake Bay and seaside.

Lisa’s professional training as a cook with 10 years of experience as caterer, pastry chef and chef, sets the stage for sumptuous breakfasts, hors d’oeuvre, and light refreshments for The Inn’s guests. Most recently, she worked in marketing and communications for a nonprofit organization in Washington, DC.

Now that our three children have moved out to pursue their own goals, we are ready to embark on the next adventure in our 35-year marriage.
