From the award winning author of the Lucky Foot Stable series, a memoir for all those who have ever dreamed of operating a B&B. This book will set you straight!BED, BREAKFAST & BEYOND is set at Fairwinds Farm, a 52 acre riding stable nestled in Maryland horse country. In September of 1998, Ted and JoAnn Dawson purchased the property to fulfill their lifelong dream of owning a bed & breakfast. Little did they know what they were getting themselves into! Restoring a filthy, dilapidated, nearly condemned Victorian house to a charming and welcoming country inn while raising two rowdy young boys was only the first of their challenges. Dealing with shady former owners, a string of ghostly events, and a wide variety of colorful guests opened their eyes to a whole new world. With the fortitude and life lessons born of years on a dairy farm, the rare good fortune of choosing the perfect partner in life, and a boatload of humor thrown in to preserve their sanity, they have managed to keep Fairwinds Farm B&B running for nearly twenty years, fifteen years longer than the average B&B in the U.S. JoAnn S. Dawson is an author, actress, college professor, and animal wrangler for film and TV when she has time away from the B&B. Her Lucky Foot Stable series has won numerous awards and she visits schools with her pony Butterscotch to promote reading and writing whenever she can.
