Checking into the Dream

August 13th, 2012

Chapter 8 March 2007:  My guests loved the inn as it was and that was why they were my guests.  Many had been coming here for years.  They were ok with an inn that was rough around the edges in exchange for lower rates.  This was not an uncommon strategy, to cut costs to the […]
