About the innkeepers

Christy opened Rose Court Cottage for business in January 2004, upon retiring from a 22 year career as a sales representative in the apparel and gift industry. Blessed with a creative skill set, she transformed what was previously an office space into Rose Court Cottage and launched a new career working from home. Becoming a Bed & Breakfast host was a complete re-invention with a very satisfactory outcome. Having traveled for years, she knew what lodging amenities she appreciated.
