The Village Inn
Nanette and I fell in love with the bed-and-breakfast during our travels in England – where a “B & B” sign outside a home (its only advertising) promises comfortable lodging, good company, and a hearty morning meal. If you want to learn about a place and its people, stop at a B & B. There’s no substitute.
That’s why we’re so delighted to see intimate bed-and-breakfast and charming country inns becoming so popular in our own country – and each with its own distinctive character. This B & B features climbing blue wisteria and ornate white wrought iron furniture that invites you to enjoy the verdant lawn.
I softened the focus just a little, and heightened the romance of a very romantic setting to make The Village Inn my dream and vision of an intimate, utterly charming bed-and-breakfast.
High-rise hotels can be quite comfortable, but Nanette and I prefer the charm of a quiet B & B where we feel more “at home.” I hope this country inn will make others feel “at home” as well.
- In an ongoing tribute to his wife Nanette, Thomas Kinkade has hidden three N’s in The Village Inn.
- The Village Inn is the second painting in Thom’s series – Country Memories Collection.
- Thom modeled this painting after a real bed-and-breakfast called Sutter Creek Inn, built in 1859 in Sutter Creek, California – located just off the historic Highway 49.
- The owners of the bed-and-breakfast encouraged Thom to paint their inn, and now they own the original of The Village Inn.
