Kelly’s perspective ~
So, there we were, see…extremely full from dinner, exhausted from driving all over the state and still had one little eleven mile trip to go. Julie’s friends were so incredibly nice to us; they really were like ambassadors to the Alva area. They actually let us follow them down the road from Bulington to Alva and on to the Vintage Inn Bed & Breakfast. They then showed us where to park, helped us find our way inside, and then gave us a personal tour! Brenda was evidently a Realtor and had shown the house several times in the past. She and Mike led us through the grand entry, showed us the dining room and kitchen, and then up the beautiful staircase we went to the second floor level of rooms…and then on up to the third floor level! I’ve included two photos from their link above, but there are more if you’d like to check out their site; their bedrooms are each unique, cozy and now are furnished with large flat-screen television sets. They also have wireless internet access, which helped us that evening because I had a post to edit!
What I appreciated about our personal tour provided by Brenda and Mike was the chance to hear voices of the community speak with pride about the Inn. Every time we turned a corner, another story emerged. Thank you, Brenda, for setting such a lovely context within which Julie and I could venture forth!
