If you’ve ever had the pleasure of staying at Selena Einwechter’s charming bed and breakfast, Tiffany Hill, then you know the calm and welcome of the special place, nestled in the foothills of North Carolina. You know how delicious the breakfasts are, you know how warm the welcome, but you may not know the story behind how this dynamic woman transformed her life from a career in corporate America to being the proprietress of stunning Tiffany Hill. (Full disclosure, Tiffany Hill is in the Southern Living Hotel Collection.)
In her new book, Courage is Abundant in the Abstract Einwechter outlines the steps she took to take her to toward her dream of becoming an innkeeper. The journey wasn’t short, nor the path easy to trod, but Einwechter invites you along for the ride. In fact, the book is as much about her desire to help others achieve their dreams as it is about the story of her own. She charmingly outlines the steps that it took for her to achieve her dreams, with the hopes that she can help others do the same. Recipes, business plans, marketing information: it’s all here.
From the traditional sign of welcome–a pineapple–on the sign out front, to the seven suites named for towns that Einwechter likes, to the tables groaning with inventive breakfast dishes, Tiffany Hill truly captures the spirit of Southern hospitality. Those who have stayed at the bed and breakfast know that Einwechter greets each guest personally, giving them a tour of the property, and helping them feel at ease. Breakfasts are served at a large communal table; one of the joys of staying here is getting to know the other guests at the inn over one of Einwechter’s gourmet breakfasts. If you’re interested in getting into the bed and breakfast business, or simply want to follow one woman’s journey toward her dream, Courage is Abundant in the Abstract is the book for you.
