We are ecstatic that we have been Voted the Best Bed & Breakfast 3 years in a row - 2017, 2018, 2019! We purchased Carriage Way in August of 2013. During that time we have grown from 11 guest rooms to 14 guest rooms ~ all with en suite baths. Each and every room has been either completely renovated or refreshed creating the new and improved Carriage Way which was converted into an inn in the 1980s. The former residence is c. 1883.
What initially started out as a full-time career for Michaele for the first 4 years of inn ownership now boasts having Julio full-time at the inn as well. In 2017, Julio was able to jump the corporate ship of a 32 year career in higher education to come aboard full-time.
Michaele literally grew up in hospitality from the age of 5 as her mother was the Director of Sales at a hotel in Oklahoma. She helped set up for catering events, made beds and gave "meet and greets." As an adult, she continued working for large hotel chains and cutting edge fast-paced restaurants as a corporate trainer. To round out the expertise in hospitality, She switched gears to a Special Events Coordinator specializing in grand galas and high-end fundraisers. Flowing in and out of this skill set, she became an Experienced Registered Yoga Teacher which really keeps her intuitive to guests' needs.
It is with great enthusiasm that we look forward to sharing with you the newly renovated "Jewel of the Ancient City" which is Carriage Way Bed Inn & Breakfast boasting a modern vintage vibe. It is our personal goal along with amazing dedicated staff to create wonderful, new memories for our guests.
Looking forward to our journey together,
Michaele [Mykal-EE] & Julio – Wife/Husband Inn Owner Team
