The Snowberry Inn in Eden, Utah, has a new owner/innkeeper – Andrea Burk. The Bed and Breakfast Inns of Utah is delighted to welcome Andrea to the world of innkeeping in Utah.
The inn is located across from the shores of the Pineview Reservoir, where summer activity abounds. Winter visitors find easy access to local ski areas, and other winter activities.
A visit to the Snowberry website finds a great “story” of one young woman’s journey into innkeeping. Here is her story:
One could say that my innkeeper story began at a tender preschool age when I told my mom I wanted to be a maid when I grew up. Needless to say, she wasn’t too proud. To my delight, a few years down the road, we moved next door to what was soon to be the Snowberry Inn. Once it was built, I decided it was time to make some money of my own, so I started to clean rooms at the Inn. This continued into my high school years when my desire to further my education and skill set was starting to grow.
Initially, I looked into beauty school, but when I was accepted into the Culinary Arts program, I decided that was my calling. After culinary school and working several years as a baker, barista, and caterer, I was still craving more education, so I headed up to the local university to pursue a business degree in Finance.
For as long as I can remember, I’ve wanted to own my own business. Throughout the years, I have been looking for my opportunity to follow my dreams and then I received word that the Snowberry Inn was looking for the next Innkeeper. After some thought, I realized how fitting the business was for me and thus, I decided to go for it. Now, I am the new Owner/Innkeeper of the Snowberry Inn. And my mom couldn’t be more proud that I grew up to be a maid (among many, many other things).
Andrea is certainly making her Mom proud. The inn feels fresh and Andrea’s touches are evident. From the gardens to the upstairs lounge, from the comfy guest rooms to the yummy breakfasts, Andrea seems to have what it takes. Next time you are in the area, stop by, or better yet, book a getaway.
