As a small bed and breakfast business, we strive to make your stay special with the little extra things you love but don't always have time for - such as flowers from the garden in your room, a special chocolate or homemade cookie or assistance with travel plans or restaurants.

Your hostess, Becky, loves to cook and pamper you with a delicious homemade breakfast. Because Besemer Station Inn is a small bed and breakfast establishment, she wants to know your likes and dislikes, allergies, etc. in order to design a specific menu to be an enjoyable and healthy start to your day. As much as possible menus incorporate seasonal and local products or those from the Pacific Northwest where Don and Becky have their roots.
