April 11th, 2016 by BBIU

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.

Beginning in January, The Bluff International Balloon Festival brings 30-some pilots to the red rocks of south eastern Utah.

In June, balloon enthusiasts will find festivals at the Springville Art City Days, the Sevier County “Eyes to The Sky” festival in Salina, and the Panguitch Valley Balloon Rally.
Check with a nearby BBIU member inn Innkeeper for accommodations. The Red Brick Inn of Panguitch, and Salt Lake Metro area members are good choices.

July brings Provo’s America’s Freedom Festival International Competition.  Salt Lake/Wasatch Front inns are a short drive down I-80

August 8 & 9, 2014, the Sandy Hot Air Balloon Festival will take place.
The Castle Creek Inn is closest BBIU Member to the festival site.

August 15-17 The Ogden Valley Balloon Festival will be held, hosted by Nordic Valley. This invitation-only event will showcase 29 balloons.  The Valley House Inn in Huntsville is close.

September 19-21 brings back to Park City its much-loved Autumn Aloft. After some 20 years, the event will host 15 invited balloons.  BBIU members in Park City or in the greater Wasatch Back area are great choice for accommodations.

Always be sure to ask your innkeeper for their favorite viewing spots.
