A Little More About Your Vermont Inn Hosts:
Edie never thought she would own a Vermont inn. Because, she is a California native raised in the Palos Verdes area of southern California. For this reason, she knew not how it fit into her future when she left her marketing position at Hewlett Packard, and moved to the central California coast to manage the Baywood Bed and Breakfast and Waterside Cafe. However, it fits perfectly with managing a Vermont inn.
Personally, Edie’s a former sailor, avid runner, and cyclist. And besides the duties of running a Vermont inn, she also enjoys cross-country and downhill skiing or snowshoeing in the winter. In the summer, she hikes, and works tirelessly coaxing her flower gardens to erupt into a riot of color. Additionally, Edie’s a master seamstress. She makes all the inn’s many hand-stitched quilts that are so typical of a Vermont inn.
Owning a Vermont inn never occurred to them.
Owning a Vermont inn never occurred to Chuck either. Due no doubt to being born in South Dakota, and raised in the San Fernando Valley area of southern California. Because he’s the eldest of 10, Chuck’s always been independent, and often self-employed. Previously, he’s built and raced motorcycles; built, raced, and extensively cruised sailboats; built and fished commercial fishing boats. Further, in Costa Rica, he managed fiberglass manufacturing and custom wood furniture businesses. Additionally, he wrote for and published newspapers; earned a law degree; managed a boat yard; and established and directed a non-profit association representing commercial fishermen. Besides his innkeeping duties, Chuck teaches snowboarding during the winters, and is a certified EMT. As you might guess, Chuck likes books and tools, and knows how to use them.
