Former Energizer (yes.. the ‘bunny’) Mechanic and Quality Control employees, now own Kilmarnock, VA’s Back Inn Time. The couple have kept “going and going” to pass the Bed & Breakfast Association of Virginia inspection. Back Inn Time is just 3 hours outside of the nation’s capital. The Inn is owned by Lisette and John Raymond, who “got into Innkeeping because we decided to retire early and we wanted a new adventure in our live. We both were working for Energizer, yes the Bunny, my husband was a master mechanic and I was in quality control, after 35+ we decided to change our life style.” The couple explained that they are very happy to have their property pass the BBAV inspection, and become members of the Association as they believe it will help give their business more exposure. Back Inn Time offers a lovely home like atmosphere for it’s guests, with rooms featuring private baths, and high speed internet, as well as other modern room amenities. Lisette boasts the Inn’s best feature as it’s gourmet breakfast. The Inn fits in well in Kilmarnock, which offers many local attractions for guests to enjoy such as antique shops, art galleries, historic homes and churches, and much more. Kilmarnock is also located near historic Williamsburg and Jamestown.
Lisette stated that she loves being a B&B owner because she enjoys “meeting such nice people” who “praise our breakfast, bedding and [we] enjoy their company.”
When asked about Back Inn Time’s new membership with the BBAV, President Heidi Lanford expressed excitement for the Raymonds: “I’m very please that Back Inn Time will now be a part of the BBAV. We hope their membership with us will help with their future goals of running a B&B.”
