Beth Polhemus and Warren Busteed celebrated 20 years in 2015 at The Bradley Inn.

The couple was working for a management company in the mid- 1990s. After returning from a gig in the Caribbean, they

accepted a contract to manage The Bradley Inn for a year while the owner was in the process of selling it.

About two weeks from closing, the would-be buyers backed out. The owner approached Busteed and Polhemus and asked if they

wanted to buy the inn.

“We hadn’t even thought about it,” Busteed said. “We had our stuff packed up. We were ready to go … the rest is history.”

The 19th century inn has 16 rooms and three cottages, as well as the 75-seat restaurant and the pub.

This is where it all began........
