Chicago and Wow! It is hard to believe that Bobbi’s Bungalow has been open for guests for a full year now. It has been an amazing year meeting new people from all over the country and creating new friends both from afar and locally. My very first guests were young men in town for a wedding – the dashing groom from Nebraska marrying a lovely Bellefontaine girl, along with a few of his handsome groomsmen. I have met artists and musicians from Chicago and California, an avid bicycler from Alaska, and a business man from Boston traveling through the area.
Because of Ohio Caverns and the Piatt Castles, I have hosted vacationing families from Michigan and Indiana. Mad River Mountain Ski Resort has brought me visitors from the Cincinnati and Columbus areas. The Champaign Aviation Museum allowed me to host their speaker, Doctor and astronaut Rhea Seddon and her husband and fellow astronaut Hoot Gibson. I have welcomed home Logan and Champaign County natives who haven’t been back in a very long time for funerals, weddings and reunions. And Green Hills Community residents are so very appreciative to have a place nearby that visiting family can stay since they have downsized and don’t have the extra space. This is just a short compilation of people I have met, and I wish I could mention everyone, as I appreciate each and every one who has stayed, but I will move on…
I also appreciate the West Liberty community and local Chambers of Commerce. I have enjoyed being part of the business community in a different way than before. I hadn’t been called “Bobbi” since I was a young kid, and it has been interesting how, even people that know me, are now calling me Bobbi because of this little bungalow’s name.
I look forward to the next year of visitors to my little 1920’s bungalow. Blessings to you all!
