Meet Your Hosts...
Innkeeping is one of the most rewarding
experiences of my life. -Jane Currier
Family events left Currier House empty for over 3 years which was what brought me back to Havre de Grace and the home of my childhood. My mother, who loved history, left many documents and notes about the house's history. Unfortunately, when I was growing up here, I had no appreciation for any of this, but I do remember my father saying the house was wonderful for entertaining.
I decided to stay and convert the home into a Bed and Breakfast while maintaining its charm drawn from those who occupied it from 1861 to the present. This entailed a self-taught crash course in Maryland history, restoring a house including plumbing and wiring, and eventually learning to cook and other hosting skills. Fortunately, some of the family recipes were discovered during our restorations.
Skills learned from my previous lives as a Greenwich Village musician and 25 years as an Infection Control Practitioner helped transform me into an innkeeper. Innkeeping is one of the most rewarding experiences of my life.

My daughter, Sarah and I love hosting visitors to our town. We take great pleasure in welcoming them to our home. What fun to see guests relaxing on our wrap-around porch, second floor balconies or making use of the library in one of the front parlors. My father was right - the house is wonderful for entertaining.
