My name is Willow, which is short for Pussywillow. Our Mum had a deep love for plants and flowers so she gave her children names like Honeysuckle and Pussywillow. People said the fragrance of the flowers in her garden drew them to our inn. Our garden has always been a gathering place for songbirds and foraging honey bees.
Honey and I are twins. We own the Starlight Inn, a B&B in Santa Barista, California (Latté Capitol of the World). We have six rooms upstairs and several cottages on the property for guests and a café downstairs which serves breakfast and lunch.
The café is open to the community as well as to our guests. Our inn has always been open to the local community. In fact we encourage our neighbors to come sit the garden whenever they feel the need of a little refreshment.
Mum has passed on but her presence is still strongly felt at the inn and in the history of our discrete little town.
Authors Lucy and Nancy have graciously given us this blog to journal about our daily life at The Starlight Inn. Our inn has an interesting history. You can read more about it under the History tab.
