10 Questions for Joanna Guidotti innkeeper,
Churchill Manor Bed and Breakfast

Each Wednesday the Napa Valley Register's Business Focus asks "10 Questions" of a local entrepreneur or businessperson.

Not many locals can say they own a three-story mansion on an acre of land in the middle of downtown Napa. Joanna Guidotti and her family can. While they may not actually live in their 10,000-square-foot house, Churchill Manor belongs to them, and they gladly share the property as they welcome guests to their bed and breakfast. Located on Brown Street, Guidotti and her husband Brian Jensen bought the mansion in 1987 in a near foreclosure sale. Twenty years later, the couple has lovingly refurbished the property, and with a staff of 10, continue the tradition of hosting travelers and weddings in the grand scale of the 1800s.Napa Valley Register Article

Bed, Breakfast and Marital Bliss
B&Bs offer the perfect pairing of charm and exclusivity for weddings and receptions

Bob Cooper - Sunday, January 15, 2006

With the trend of holding weddings that linger for a weekend or longer came the issue of where best to conduct such events. Increasingly, people are booking bed-and-breakfast inns to solve that problem. "People are looking for something more unique and avant-garde than walking down a church aisle or celebrating in a banquet hall," says Kathy Moler of the California Association of Bed & Breakfast Inns. If you rent an inn for one or two days, which is not impossibly expensive, every event from the rehearsal dinner to the honeymoon can happen there — and out-of-town guests have a place to stay.San Francisco Chronicle
