CLIENT PROFILE – ANN COISH & ERN BURROWS
B&B Hosts – Marysville
We often hear people say, “I’d love to run a B&B” though few actually go down that road. Two RV clients who made it a reality are Ann Coish and Ern Burrows.
Ann taught for 30 years – both in the Technical and Secondary Divisions. Seven years ago she and her husband Ern, together with another couple, bought a B&B property at Marysville. Their business partners worked the property and they visited as they could. Having now retired they find themselves involved at the property every weekend.
