This is Fred Ball for Zions Bank, speaking on business.
Although you may have heard it before on the show, I'll say it again, Midway is "Heaven on Earth." Well, I want to add that I have found a small piece of paradise within that heaven called Invited Inn Bed and Breakfast. It is a quaint and elegant inn located on the second tee of the Homestead's golf course, situated in the heart of Heber Valley, and it's quite inviting, hence the name.
Susi Stern lived in Germany where she stayed in a charming, family-run bed and breakfast. Susi had extensive background in the food services industry and she knew she had to open a bed and breakfast in the states.
So, she did! Susi and her husband, Bill, opened their doors in August 2002, with plans to spoil their guests rotten, or so Susi says. Invited Inn feels and smells like a home and is, of course, a Swiss style inn designed, decorated and remodeled by Bill and Susi. All of the room rates include afternoon teatime with hors d'oeuvres and specialty beverages as well as what Susi calls the "no lunch" breakfast. In other words, you won't need lunch because you won't be able to stop eating her fabulous gourmet food. If you're tired, settle down for an evening movie with homemade popcorn, endless cookie plates, and bottled water, juices and sodas, all part of your room rate. This is more than just a stay, it's an experience!
Invited Inn has five lovely themed bedrooms done in exquisite décor. Each room has a private bathroom, fireplace, steam shower, towel warmer, featherbed and down comforter. Better yet, the four deluxe rooms have private balconies, saunas and double whirlpool tubs. One of the most popular rooms at the inn is the Sun Room because it is bright and cheerful, even though snow covers the beautiful view before you.
Invited Inn is open year round because Heber Valley has recreation galore. Renowned ski resorts, Soldier Hollow, an outdoor ice rink and The Heber Creeper are just some of the nearby attractions.
