Our Story

kris_jesseWe had a dream of working together as a family, where we could use all of our combined skills in a way that would help to enrich the Middlebury Community.  While we were searching for a business that would give us this opportunity, we also happened to be looking for a unique wedding venue for Jesse and Kristen’s wedding.  We soon realized that what we were looking for did not exist in the Elkhart County area.

This led us to look for property to buy with a barn large enough to renovate for weddings and events, when we stumbled upon The Patchwork Quilt Inn.  Not only did it have a gorgeous barn that is approximately 100 years old, but also a beautiful setting with a bed and breakfast included.  We realized that this property would be the perfect place to fulfill our dream.  Not only did it have all of the elements we were looking for, but it was already a fully operational bed and breakfast that only needed a little TLC.

Now we are proud to extend an open invitation to come and enjoy our property for your wedding, event, or a relaxing getaway.

Karl, Ellen, Jesse & Kristen
