The Inn at 410 Bed and Breakfast
After a series of owners, including the NAU Sigma Nu Fraternity, Carol and Mike Householder purchased the property in 1989 and spent two years restoring it, painstakingly stripping the oak trim throughout of several coatsof paint. The Inn's current kitchen was added at this time, as well as the smaller building to the south of the Inn which houses the Monet's Garden room, the Inn's laundry/work space and a second story Innkeeper's residence. The Householders opened The Inn at 410 Bed & Breakfast in 1991. Mr. and Mrs. Howard Krueger purchased the ongoing business in 1993. They wanted some of the guest rooms at the Inn to reflect regional influences and others to evoke the era of the Pollocks. In 1995 they remodeled existing guest rooms to create The Tea Room, The Southwest and Sunflower Fields. After extensive remodeling in 1996, Sonoran Serenade, Canyon Memories, The Conservatory, Dakota Suite and Suite Nature were born. A fireplace and Jacuzzi tub was added to Monet's Garden in 1999 when this guest room was redecorated. In September, 2003 Gordon Watkins purchased The Inn at 410 with many important changes made at the Inn, including the addition of a video library and DVD/VHS/CD players in every room and a complimentary cyber cafe for guests who need high speed internet access or need e-mail access. Down blankets and pillows are now in every room, along with spa soaps, bath robes and our partial turn-down service. The Inn's dining and living room areas have been completely redecorated and artwork and Native American rugs have been hung in the Inn's grand staircase. The two bedroom Observatory Suite was enjoyed by Mr. Watkins in 2007.
