Once upon time.... my parents, brother and I immigrated to America. I was born in Wiesbaden, Germany of a mother who was born and raised in Bordeaux, France and the father born in Prague and raised in Beirut, Lebanon. Both sets of grandparents were from Russia. English was my 4th language. As a child at home we spoke French, Russian and a little bit of German. I have traveled & lived in many parts of the world both with family and as an adult being I had worked with a major airline and with travel agencies. 

Twenty-one years ago I fell in love with this heavenly area of Western North Carolina and purchased this century old family home which now I have the pleasure and privilege to call home. To share this 1910 historic home with others, in 1995 we opened Blaine B&B and hosted guests until 2013. Unfortunately at that time, I was forced to close Blaine House  to have two major surgeries and it did take some time to recover.

Well here it is 2016 and I'm up and at it again, you can't keep me down. I look forward to meeting and hosting the many interesting guests again like I had in the past. Part of having this lovely home for people to stay in in Franklin, is the enjoyment of meeting folks from all walks of life and from all over the world! Truly you learn so much from others.

I enjoy getting myself involved and trying many different things some of which is doing my artwork & crafts (, enjoying my friends, reading, traveling when time permits, keeping up with the grounds & gardening, and caring  of pets (which they reside in my home quarters) my furry children DO NOT have run of the house....please be assured. Never a dull moment around here I must say! So please give Blaine House a try as I resume my duties of hosting the many wonderful guests once again!
