Born in Royal Oak, Michigan, Robin moved to Boston in 1988. She found Boston to be exciting, beautiful and more manageable than NYC. Victoria, Robin's daughter was born in Jamaica Plain (known as JP) in 1993 and now attends MassArt full time as an illustration major. Victoria lives at The Roost and manages the property as of September 2014 while attending school. Robin works out of an office in the house so she is there quite often. Both Robin and Victoria have a passion for good food, wine, art, travel and meeting people. They enjoy providing memorable experiences, beautiful surroundings and comfort to their guests.
