Wow! It’s been a whirlwind since acquiring Bella Rose from Renee and Chris last year. Rob and I have enjoyed it all thus far, particularly our guests. It has been our pleasure to serve guests from California to the East Coast, and we’re looking forward to a number of international guests visiting Bella Rose in 2016. Having retired from the practice of law after 25 years and missing the friendship of various professional contacts and clients somewhat, I have found it to be a delight to become an innkeeper. Our guests have been fabulous. We love to hear their many fascinating stories (our guests this week are dancers at Radio City Music Hall – who doesn’t love the Christmas Show??). We are so appreciative of our guests’ courtesy and kindness. I have always enjoyed cooking (and finally just having the time to be creative) and do not believe I will ever tire of guests asking if I trained at the Culinary Institute of America or commenting that it’s the best breakfast they’ve ever eaten (How nice!). I knew it was a good sign that a favorite breakfast cookbook of Renee’s was the same as mine. And we are just so grateful for Renee and Chris’ loving care of Bella Rose, and we continue to cherish her (and her guests).
We look forward to hosting you and continuing to serve you with creative concoctions. Or to guide you around our beautiful Finger Lakes’ region in which we have lived since the 90s.
See you soon! Jill
