Formerly known as the Tearose Tearoom Bed and Breakfast, this historic property on E. Washington St, near Wayne St, has undergone significant renovations which began in summer 2017. In honoring Ellen and Andy Kraus who bought the property in 1987 and spent 5 years restoring it with son Andy Kraus Jr, we have kept many of the design choices they made while adding elements of our own.
