Inn Serendipity Bed & Breakfast
Completely powered by 100 percent renewable energy, Inn Serendipity features "100 foot" breakfasts that showcase local, organic and seasonal vegetarian specialties freshly harvested from the farm gardens less than 100 feet away. Owners Lisa Kivirist and John Ivanko are authors of several books on sustainable living and green business. Complimentary farm tours introduce B&B guests to the wind turbine, solar panels, the strawbale greenhouse and organic growing fields. A visit to Inn Serendipity is more than a typical night's stay at a Bed & Breakfast. Featured in Newsweek, ABC News and USA Today, Inn Serendipity is a magical, creative environment where you can play, relax and explore.
