Dave and I own and operate "Bernadine's Stillman Inn" in Galena IL since 2000. A prime spot to visit if you enjoy History and the Gentle Arts.
We just returned from the PAII Innkeepers Convention in Myrtle Beach, SC. How exciting! We have so many new ideas we can't wait to share them with you all!
Anyone who has met Dave knows what a great communicator he is. Well it seems our son, Phil, has inherited that trait. Phil would go to breakfast early and visit with all the innkeepers and pretty much anyone who would listen. He caught the attention of the Keynote Speaker who was there teaching on communication and hospitality and was so taken by Phil's expertise in the area (he's only 16) that he mentioned Phil to the entire 850 guests. Phil was later invited as a special guest to this speakers mini seminar. What a blast!
The beach was beautiful and we had a great time on the ATV's! It's a great place to visit. Next year the PAII convention will be at Disney Land in California!
