|803 Elizabeth Bed and Breakfast Matthews NC||
803 Elizabeth was built in the early 60's by Elizabeth and Howard Maynard. They subdivided an old farm into large building lots along Elizabeth Lane (named, of course, after Elizabeth.) We bought the five acres with the house in 1973. Seventeen years ago, we transformed our extra rooms into a bed and breakfast. It has been a great experience and we really enjoy meeting guests from, so far, 40 states and 9 countries.
We love to travel as well as stay at home and tend to the gardens and the B&B. Our "Bucket List" includes visiting all of our 50 states. We made it in October of 2013. Oregon was our last state to visit. Here we are at the visitors center.
It was a terrific trip. We flew into Oakland and went to Chez Panisse for dinner that night. Then we traveled to Healdsburg and stayed at Bella Villa Messina, a great B&B one of our guests told us about. Jerry, the host, steered us to splendid restaurants and vineyards. Then we visited Etoile in Yountville where a friend's son works. We went up the coast visiting gardens and arrived in Oregon! Visited with friends in Portland and Lake Oswego. We want to go back!
