We are Marnie and Bret Blackman. Married since 2010, Marnie is a Licensed Realtor and Massage Therapist and Bret is a longtime Andersen Windows employee. Bret is a native of New Richmond, and Marnie is a Minnesota native but has lived here since 2009.
We have a blended family of 4 boys and 4 girls. 4 of them are married, and we have 2 beautiful grandchildren. We are a military family: Bret is a Navy veteran and we have 2 boys serving in the US Air Force. We have 2 dogs: Miss Tillie the Bulldog, and Sweet Pebbles, who stay in our innkeepers quarters.
The moment we stepped foot in this home, we knew we were in love. Built in 1870, boasting 4500 square feet and offering 4 guest suites in addition to our innkeepers quarters, it had been lovingly restored to all it's grandeur. We bought it in April 2018, have added our own touches, and want to share it with you!
