The Orange Gild Bed & Breakfast

We were happy to sell this fixer upper to our clients who were moving here from Holland. Especially because the property is around the corner from our house and was a real eyesore. The Het Lams have completely renovated the home from top to Bottom and are opening the Orange Guild B&B on memorial Day weekend! Since they are just launching now, they have rooms available all Summer, when everywhere else is surely booked. It's a great location and the rooms look fresh and inviting. Congratulations Ron and Marian and welcome to Washington!
