Jack and Pat purchased Mayhurst Inn in April 2004 and continue the tradition of fine Southern Hospitality that is a signature of Mayhurst since 1859.
In some of his "previous lives" Jack received a BA (Political Science) and MA (Business Administration), served as an officer in the US Army (Infantry) for 20 years retiring as a Lieutenant Colonel and married the girl of his dreams. Following his retirement he was the Director of Federal Programs for a major Healthcare Corporation and oversaw the installation and implementation of Electronic Medical Record Systems. Virtually none of his experiences prepared him for innkeeping. Now Jack is a happy innkeeper, an avid gardener, amateur cook, experienced parachutist and scuba diver, former baseball coach and umpire, and an enthusiastic historian who loves living in the history of Mayhurst and meeting new people.
Pat's experiences include attending collage and receiving a BA (Social Work), finding and marrying the incredibly lucky Jack, rearing three children and moving 15 times in 30 years. Simultaneously she worked as both a social worker and Alzheimer/Dementia specialist who ran Alzheimer care facilities and provided Alzheimer training and counseling for the staff in over 50 homes. Her lifetime experiences have served her well in dealing with a huge variety of guests and with her often clumsy and inept husband. She is a fantastic cook, an experienced homemaker and decorator who loves meeting, talking with guests and taking care of their needs. She's the boss but isn't allowed to touch plants due to her black thumb.
If you have questions about the area, things to do, places to eat - after 12 years of Innkeeping we are your best source of information.
