History

Purchased in the year 2000 by Kena Cormier, this bed and breakfast started in a home over 100 years old. The house was renovated over the years, and Cormier Studio Bed and Breakfast, along with the Studio's large garden, were added. Kena decided to downsize after the renovation, making more room for a more extensive art gallery.

The garden took years to perfect, but now Kena takes care of it well. There are beautiful plants and flowers showcased year-round. As the original owner, Kena has overseen all of the property's renovations and progress. Running Cormier's Studio is all she knows, and she loves the Studio. Here she displays lots of her own artwork in addition to some collection items and other locally made artwork.
