The Kull B&B Breakfast
Everyone has a story to share if we take the time to listen.
A while back, Greg and I had the absolute pleasure of meeting Petie and Ray Bartram. They are hands down one of the loveliest couples a person could ever hope to cross paths with. They both are enchanting storytellers, and they graciously share their tales with you as if you were one of their closest friends or a cherished family member.
Shortly after we purchased The Kull, on a bright sunny Sunday afternoon, Petie and Ray came through our front gate, and to say our lives are enhanced by knowing them would most certainly be an understatement.
In fact, meeting the Bartrams and hearing their animated stories inspired us to alter The Kull’s name. I feel the need to pause here and share what I believe to be one of my favorite truths about life. There is no such thing as coincidence; it is God’s way of staying anonymous! I do not believe people come into our lives randomly or by chance, and our lovely friends, The Bartrams, only deepen my belief.
It turns out, Petie and Ray used to own our home, and back in 1988, they opened Bartram’s White Mountain Bed & Breakfast in this very same spot! All these years later, they still live up here on the mountain, and on that beautiful Sunday morning, they stopped by to introduce themselves and unknowingly, in the best way possible, alter the future of The Kull.
Greg and I continue to be inspired by their spirit and their eagerness to share their stories with us. In turn, we wanted to honor them and the heart they so lovingly poured into this place we now call home. It is with great pleasure that we announce we are enhancing our name to include White Mountain, as this special place did some 30 plus years ago.
We can only hope that we will be as happy and blessed running #TheKullWhiteMountainB&B as Petie and Ray were when it was Bartram’s White Mountain Bed & Breakfast.
In the spirit of storytelling, here is the story, in pictures, of The Kull White Mountain B&B then and now.
