Meet the Innkeeper

Get to know Willis Graves & Your Innkeeper, Jennifer

When I was a young child, my father and I traveled up and down the East Coast together. We stayed at B&B’s in Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Vermont, and New York State. I have the fondest memories of those beautiful places – the cozy rooms, the elegant décor, the historical settings, and…the amazing breakfasts.

When I discovered Willis Graves, it brought back all those wonderful memories. I couldn’t be more thrilled that I am now the proprietor of this magical place.

My first love has always been cooking with my Mom. As a young chef, I had many restaurant, catering, and country club jobs. Chefs change jobs a lot! With tons of experience under my belt, I eventually found my way to Williams-Sonoma, where I landed a plum position as a corporate chef. It was a fantastic job. I learned about hospitality, taught cooking classes, and perfected my gourmet cooking techniques while using their fabulous products.

Today, being an innkeeper allows me to be creative, surround myself with beautiful things, revel in glorious natural surroundings, and of course, cook for people who really appreciate it. We have also added cooking classes available to our guests and our community

I share my family, my recipes, and the experience of running Willis Graves in my journal where you are invited in for a glimpse of my world.

Please call or email me if you want to know more about Willis Graves or book your stay. I look forward to pampering you!

Most Sincerely,

Jennifer Goodman
