Dave and Beth Ann fell in love with Butterfly Hollow the first day they drove up its tree-lined driveway. Its spiritual ambiance and their love of the outdoors encouraged Dave and Beth Ann to embark together on a journey of a lifetime.
Dave spent 30 years in the hospitality industry working in all aspects of the hotel industry throughout his career. As a graduate of Grand Valley State Universities Hospitality program his professional career took him to various parts of the country to live and to work. By doing this it allowed him a unique opportunity to see a wide variety of lifestyles and working experiences. As his career grew and he gained regional responsibilities as an executive, his desire to leave “corporate life” and pursue his dreams of owning a bed and breakfast became reality. As the primary innkeeper Dave has taken his years of hotel experience and transformed it into an exceptional service orientated B&B.
Beth Ann graduated from the University of Florida College of Medicine and completed her residency training at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Boston. She practices at Vanderbilt University Medical Center, providing outpatient primary care, working with medical students as a College Mentor and clinical preceptor, and serving as the Associate Program Director for the Internal Medicine residency program. Beth Ann also volunteers her time as Chairman of Luke 9:2 Ministries which partners with local health professionals to provide medial care to under served countries. More importantly Beth Ann enjoys raising their son, Leyton and being a stepmother to Alexandria and Kristopher ensuring she shares with them all the joys life has to offer.
Throughout their marriage Beth Ann has gained an appreciation of the hospitality business and joined her husband in his desire to own a bed and breakfast. They are grateful to the friends and family that have supported this dream and thankful for the wonderful guests who return time after time to experience the wonders of Butterfly Hollow. They will never be able to express their gratitude for the life and mission they have been given.
