Dreams of Yesteryear Turns Sixteen

The Dreams of Yesteryear Bed and Breakfast marked 16 years in business. Although we did not buy our Victorian Queen Anne home to be a bed and breakfast when we purchased it in 1987, we became a B&B in 1990. The best things sometimes happen by accident. That's how it was with our bed and breakfast. We took the overflow from a local bed and breakfast one busy weekend in July. It was the weekend of the Iola Old Car Festival and every hotel room in Stevens Point was booked. My friend asked if we'd like to have some guests. We said we would and, as they say, the rest is history. This weekend the Iola Old Car Festival once again occurred and we marked 16 years in business. I guess we must like owning and operating a bed and breakfast or we wouldn't have stuck it out this long. What can I say, our guests are the best--the cream of the crop. Who wouldn't want to do this? So, happy 16th anniversary, Dreams of Yesteryear.
