Meet the Innkeeper; Ali A. Winston
"Ever since I was a little girl, I loved when company was coming. My grandmother Louise set the table with china, crisp linens, daffodils from the garden and polished silver. Freshly baked breads and cakes made especially for us and the chatter of happy voices filled the house. I invite you to my home and look forward to your company!"
Staveleigh House History
In 2001, Ali became the very proud new owner of the inn whose original structure was first built for a young minister from Dartmouth in 1818. That minister, James Bradford, was the third pastor of Old Parish Church, and he lived there for 25 years with his wife and seven children. The original building, which was a plain colonial, was half the size of the current house.
In the 1890s, Harry Andrew Staveleigh bought the house modernized and expanded it, built the grand staircase and added the ornate hearth and fireplace mantle and had the name Staveleigh carved into the mantle. In the years since she bought the inn, Ali has put her own imprint on the house, while trying to keep its traditional flavor. She repainted it and added private baths, remodeled the kitchen, and finally had a place to showcase the china, glassware and other treasures she so lovingly collects. She considers the style of her Massachusetts B&B as "sophisticated country."
