Staff...now there's a loaded topic.

To begin with, it's a loaded word.

Staff...that which supports, holds up, stands erect.

I would like to think of the people who are here at
Hotel Gratitude
as more than people who work here.

Hotel Gratitude is their home, where they get to express themselves in their own unique fashion, and share their multitude of talents.

So,  without further adieu, here are the people who will be taking care of you when you come and stay at our unique property.


where would my life be without my sister.

The other part of my heart.

She tends our gardens.  Our flowers, our vegetables, our herbs.
All the natural elements that go into making our home its most beautiful.

The trees, flowers, shrubs and herbs attract the birds, bees and insects that balance our environment.

She tends the vegetables we feed ourselves and you with.

She sings to the bees as they make their honey, and whispers to the seeds as she lays them in our most fertile soil.

All the while wearing her most fabulous of Wellington boots!

And she silently weaves her magic in her greenhouses, where she grows the tenderest of berries, the most exotic of fruit and the most exquisite of orchids that she places lovingly in each room.

She will tend our animals, treating each one as the beautiful, loving creatures of the earth that they are.

Victoria...our master gardener, animal-husbandry expert extrodinaire!
