Across the USA 2013 #4 (Reutter’s Roost B&B)

May 4, 2013

In route to our next business stop, we made time to visit Monika’s first “host mother” in Anoka, MN when she came to the States to teach through a foreign language teachers’ program for high schools back in 1976/1977. Alice Krull and her late husband Hal turned her parents beautiful farmhouse in Valley City, Ohio into a bed & breakfast. The transitional Queen Anne style home with a Victorian wraparound porch was built in 1913 and restored in 1996. www.reuttersroost.com. Alice insisted we spend a day to get off the road and she spoiled us with her fabulous cooking. Our comfortable bedroom even had a separate sitting room! What a treat!!

This deluxe bed & breakfast was a relaxing stop on our way to Mississauga, Ontario.

Bed & Breakfast with a capital “B”. Alice was a marvelous cook and we gained two pounds.

Still great friends after many years, Alice was Monika’s first “host mother” when she was on a teacher exchange program back in 1976/77.
