“Serving guests since 1983”
Charles and Susannah Jones built the Celo Inn over a period of ten years. They wanted it to be comfortable and lovely, but not precious; affordable and simple, but not primitive. Details borrowed from countless European hostels and inns—cozy dormered nooks, exposed framing timbers, burnished wood, soft tile—were incorporated into their new/old structure. The Inn's massive 6-lite entry door admitted its first guests in 1983, and the warmth and comfort of the Joneses' realized vision has been shared by many since then. Randy and Nancy Raskin, having been substitute innkeepers each September for four years, stepped full-time into the Joneses' dream in 1987, taking over the business in February of that year. Faint light silhouettes Seven Mile Ridge and peeks through French doors, finding Nancy at work over the Queen Atlantic cookstove. Oak and poplar blaze in the fire box, baking muffins, poaching apples, heating water. A higher, warmer sun now peeks through casement windows, joining the wood-cooked breakfast aromas in a wake-up chorus. The dining room is warm, Nancy's smile even warmer—it is a good place to start the day.
