The Inn runs efficiently with only 2 owners and 2 part-time housekeepers.
A large adjacent residence is also available as a potential owners quarters. This home is a separate purchase from the Inn. Innkeepers and family can lead separate lives away from the main Inn while not having to share a kitchen, den, etc.
