Ruth Turner. Originally, from New York, she made Arcadia Valley her home 22 years ago. She has worked at Plain & Fancy Bed & Breakfast the last few summers performing a variety of duties.
Ruth enjoys meeting new people, taking photos, scrap booking and her grandchildren. She hopes to establish an herb garden and use fresh herbs in her food preparation for the bed and breakfast. She is now preparing dinners for guests with advance reservations. Make your plans now to stay at the inn and enjoy dinner, also.
Tom and Brenda Merello are the owners at Plain & Fancy Bed & Breakfast. They invite you to share their home with them.
After traveling many years and staying in many different b & bs, they decided to open one. They incorporated in their home the things that they liked in their various experiences and hope that you will like them, too.
They own 250 acres adjacent to the property where they offer trail rides and short term boarding; Tom also raises cattle.
Enjoying guests, playing bridge and golfing are among their favorite pastimes. Sometimes, they combine their favorite activities by playing a hand or two of bridge with guests or even the occasional round of golf with someone staying at the inn. (When time allows, of course!)
One guest wrote in the memory book "What an amazing and relaxing romantic weekend we had. Hot tub, great breakfasts, wonderful evening of bridge with Tom and Brenda--Who could ask for anything more??!?!!"
