The Ash Street Inn owners
Rob and Margit Wezwick are the Owners/Innkeepers of The Ash Street Inn. They purchased the property in the Spring of 2015 but are no strangers to the hospitality business. They had talked about owning a B&B when they first met and when they found the Ash Street Inn they knew "this was the one" and they decided to make their dream a reality.
Margit is a transplant from Bavaria, Germany where her mother was the owner of a fifteen room Gasthaus (Guest House). It was however, not a direct transition from the guesthouse to being an innkeeper. Taking a detour, Margit first studied biology and aquired a Ph.D. in cell biology, which ultimately led her to the US as a post-doctoral scientist at Boston University. Following that, Margit worked for 15 years as a conference director, producing conferences with topics related to life sciences and health care. This work not only required her knowledge in sciences, but also in event planning, customer service, marketing, building new relations and general people skills - it was the perfect prelude to starting a new endeavor and becoming an innkeeper.
Rob grew up in NY and he is not a rookie to the food service side of the business as his family owned a deli in Queens. Although he always loved cooking he did not want to be part of the family business and joined the US Air Force out of High School. After serving four years, he came went back to NY and worked in the technology field, specializing in telecommunications. While living and working in Dallas, Texas he was laid off after the tech bubble burst in 2000, Rob then decided to go to culinary school and started a personal chef company. Currently he is cooking at the Inn in the mornings and also working as an Account Manager for a startup technology company specializing in wireless antennas for the entertainment industry.
Together we know that our background and experience will provide a comfortable stay for our guests and look forward to having you come stay at our Inn.

"The best bed and breakfast I have stayed in! I’m not sure what is better, the accommodations or the food (ask for the pecan french toast for breakfast!!) Impeccable service accompanied by a spotless room makes the Ash Street Inn a top notch pick!" - Audrey, Maine
