Bob and I, Connie, decided to open a bed and breakfast to meet the growing needs for high quality hospitality services in our home town, and also when we found the ideal location. We enjoy meeting new people too.
The first time Bob brought me flowers, it was seven roses. This started a tradition, and is the origin of the name Seven Roses Inn. Yellow roses are used for the Inn because they are a symbol of friendship.
Bob and Connie
I’m a sixth-generation Fairfield area resident and Bob, from Portland, Oregon, grew up in California. My career is in banking and financial advising. He has been a university professor, clinical psychologist, and author.
In recent years, I have served in city government (currently as Mayor), focusing on business expansion, development of arts and culture, and making Fairfield a model community for safety, health, and fun. I have served on civic boards including the Fairfield Area Civic Center, Library Foundation Board, Rotary Club, and Go Green Commission. Bob writes about cutting-edge issues of the consciousness/mind/matter relationship, and on communication skills training (details here).
My identical twin daughters and their great families – now five grandkids! – have careers in the fields of high school education, child development, health services, and insurance.
We look forward to hearing a little about your story, as your time allows.
Much of the artwork on display at the Inn is from local artists. Original paintings from Roberta Williams, David Orme-Johnson, Susan Kessel, Kuno Vole, and John Preston prints are featured.
