The Story of The Ryan Nicholas Inn- written by Skip and Marylee (Condensed version. See assoc docs for full) "The dream was born with a little girl named Kim who wanted to be successful and earn money. She enjoyed work more than play, yet lived in a mix of fantasy and reality. Early on her parents, Skip and Marylee Waylett, realized she had drive and organizational skills beyond her years. She planned adventures baking cookies to sell, having a hamburger stand, washing windows, addressing envelopes- all before she was a teenager! Her dreams were put on hold when she married and had her two sons (Ryan and Nicholas.) She became supermom, planning events for their sports or at school. Finally Kim’s Dad, Skip, retired and it soon seemed that he and Marylee might invest in her dreams. The Ryan Nicholas Inn was born! A venue for weddings, parties, social events and a bed-and-breakfast. The family imagined something between the White House and the mansions in Gone with the Wind and The Sound of Music. The Inn had to look old but be new and perfect. To achieve this much was custom-made: mouldings, trim, pediments, doors and Brazilian Cherry, Italian marble and tile floors. Bathrooms including steam showers and a sauna. Millions were spent and the dream was realized. 19 years and over 900 weddings and as many other events later it remains a successful and thriving business. It has an impeccable reputation in the community for unmatched service. It's a well oiled, perfectly executed, yet exquisite, event center and Kim is loved by all she has served.The dream was fulfilled."
