Year Purchased: 1983
About the owner: Skiff Point Guest House was originally founded by Janice Parker. Jan's daughter; Kristin is the owner and hostess carrying on her mother's legacy. Kristin has been running the inn over the past three plus years now. This is a very special place to myself and my guests. I have had guests that have returned every year after year which makes this a home away from home for many of my guests who have become dear friends. 'Come as strangers and leave as friends'. Following in my mother's footsteps I am carrying on her legacy..... I love making this a special place for my guests, giving them a wonderful place to stay and enjoy. I always leave little special touches for my guests including treats like dark chocolate, perhaps a bottle of wine for those that are staying for a week or more, fresh flowers, bath salts, and more... I want my guests to feel like they are really getting a treat and I love being an innkeeper. Your comfort is so important to me! My mother tastefully decorated the units with her gift of interior designing and a great eye for beauty! I had made some wonderful changes to the suites and am continuing to make upgrades to the units to make them more luxurious and inviting for everyone to enjoy. As your hostess I am happy to help you make your travel plans, personally talk to you about any questions you might have and provide all that I can to make your visit that much more special.
