A LITTLE HISTORY OF OUR INN AND US
It all started with Kimberly, who seems to have been raised specifically to run an Inn. Kimberly’s household has always been reminiscent of a B&B and she was told many times that she should open one. This was mostly due to her social personality, her ability to make others feel welcome and her abilities for creating beautiful atmospheres. But also because she always seemed to be entertaining guests from all over the world.
Although her family moved quite often she spent most of her teen years growing up on Lake George (mostly in Bolton Landing). She left the area while still in her early twenties however, the area always had a special place in her heart. Events in her life took her all throughout the States until she finally settled in Italy. After years enjoying life in Italy she started to reminisce about Lake George. Her older brother had returned to the area and finally convinced her to return. Her son Jonathan also decided to leave Italy and brought his wife Ana Lucia and their daughter Joanna along with him.
THE MOVE TO LAKE GEORGE
They invested in a beautiful piece of property right in Lake George Village that included several guest suites. As much as they loved the Lake George area they felt homesick for Italy and so decided to try and recreate the Italian atmosphere as closely as possible on their property. They started remodeling the suites with a very romantic tuscan flavor. The gardens were also redone in order to recreate the feeling of gardens one might find in a typical Italian Village. They certainly succeeded in their efforts, many of their guests that have been to Italy are surprised at just how authentic it all feels and many of the Italians that visit are reminded of their home towns!
Their work on the property was so remarkable that they were awarded the VILLAGE OF LAKE GEORGE 2016 BEAUTIFICATION AWARD. Each year the town picks the business that they feel made the most stunning changes to their property and in an award ceremony in Shepard’s Park the Mayor hands out the award. Kimberly comments that when she saw they were up for the reward she was happy, but never imagined that they would win since they were up against some pretty big names, however, to their surprise they were given the award!
THE PROPERTY NAME
The name of the Inn —Romeo & Giulietta’s Hideaway— came about in an interesting way. Lake George reminded them a lot of Lago di Garda, which is located on the outskirts of Verona. Verona is the “hometown” of Romeo and Juliet (Giulietta in Italian). It is where Shakespeare was inspired to write the play, the house that inspired Juliet’s balcony is still there and has become a tourist attraction.
The likeliness of Lago di Garda to Lake George made them brainstorm ideas connected to Romeo and Juliette. Until they settled on the idea of Romeo & Giulietta’s Hideaway (keeping the Italian spelling of Juliet).
They continued with the theme as they named the separate suites coming up with names such as: Romeo’s Haven, The Giulietta Suite, Shakespeare’s Den, The Verona Suite and the Renaissance Suite.
