For Marla, running her bed and breakfast is a life long dream come true. She decided over 35 years ago that this is what she wanted to do in her retirement. It combines her love of people, her passion for historic homes, the never-ending search for just the right “object de art”, and cooking. Prior to being an innkeeper, Marla was a school psychologist.
When Joe met Marla, he had to ask, “what is a bed and breakfast?. After a whirlwind vacation to Eureka Springs, the capitol of bed and breakfast inns, he got the flavor and signed on to Marla’s dream to run one. Ironically, he was the main innkeeper for the first three years since Marla was still working her “other” job. Joe was an engineer for the Ford Motor Company; a job in retrospect he feels was easier than innkeeping. He frequently asks Marla which 20 hours are we working today?
