Greeter of the Month
Wendy Roberts
Provided by Linda Lochard
If you looked in the dictionary under “Wendy Roberts” you might find the following description: “A whirling force of positive energy, smiles, belly laughs and a strong commitment to community.” Born and raised in northern California, Wendy and her husband Brian, also her biggest fan, moved to Oregon in 2008. Wendy owned and operated a coffee shop for 25 years in California. As well as her and Brian owning a number of property rentals. They were certainly no strangers to hard work. Unfortunately in 2008, they, along with many others, were severely impacted by the downturn in the economy and ended up selling all of their rentals to relocate to Oregon—at the same time reinventing themselves. Since their move they have combined their joy of hospitality and their property rental experience to build and entertain folks in their beautiful Inn on 5th in Jacksonville. If you have not been to their property, you’ve just got to visit and book a great time. Once you enter the quaint and strategically located “little yellow house on the corner of 5th Street in downtown Jacksonville (right across from Ray’s), you will return again and again. There’s popcorn in the cabinets in a fully outfitted kitchen, including tea, salt and pepper and other items you might have forgotten (but Wendy and Brian didn’t forget!) A bottle of wine, complete with wine bucket if that’s your preference, with of course, chocolates! Each room decorated with comfortable bedding that makes you want to curl up and sleep forever. HOWEVER, you wouldn’t want to miss out on the shopping downtown during the day or the nightlife of Jacksonville. Oops, I would be remiss if I did not mention the back yard with yard lights and a fire pit. Wendy always offers fun, caring and straight talk in her relationships, business or pleasure. Step up and meet her. There’s a reason she’s Greeter of the Month April.
