Susan and Raymond purchased The Mission Inn in June
2002. Beginning the first day, the Inn had guests, as the
summer season had arrived. Through the summer and fall,
Susan took careful notes of those aspects of the building and grounds she wanted
improved. In October 2002, Susan took a trip to California to visit all 21 of the original
missions, from San Diego to San Francisco.
Beginning in January 2003 Susan began to make significant improvements to the Inn.
Each guest room was themed after one of the missions, using colors and designs
Susan had observed on her trip. The common areas were themed to reflect the warmth
of the missions. Each year additional improvements are planned and implemented.
Return guests are always finding the "little changes" that reflect the attention to detail so
noticeable at the Inn.
