Trish and Kevin met in high school. They had several mutual friends but never dated until graduation night that was when Kevin asked Trish if she was attending a classmate’s graduation party. When Trish said no as she did not have a ride Kevin offered her a ride. That ended up being their first date. Had they not gone out that night they probably would never have seen each other again as they already lived ½ hour apart (Trish was bused to school) and that summer of high school graduation Kevin’s family moved another hour away. Kevin attended school at the University of Long Island – C.W. Post University while Trish attended The College of the Holy Cross in Worcester, Mass. After a 5 year long distance romance they married in 1982.
Kevin went on to earn his law degree and establish his own law practice. He subsequently joined with two other partners and practiced real estate law for 12 years before “retiring” to take care of our children, Kevin Jr. and Laura. Kevin also established Robinson Realty Renovators specializing in residential and historic renovations. The beauty of these years was marked by Kevin’s ability to use his extensive renovation talents while the kids were in school and then be there for the kids after school including as a head weight coach for their track team. Just prior to purchasing the Inn, Kevin built our dream home on 8 acres of property with beautiful landscaping and all sorts of wonderful amenities including a geothermal heating and cooling system.
Trish was busy balancing family, continuing her education (earning her MBA) and climbing the corporate ladder in the financial services industry. She held leadership roles in the areas of Marketing, Public Relations, Government Relations, Employee Communications, Corporate Human Resources, Customer Service, Information Technology, Corporate Strategy, Insurance Risk Management etc. before retiring from the corporate world as a Senior Vice President at MassMutual Financial Group. Throughout her career, one of Trish’s passions was to mentor and coach individuals and celebrate their successes. In October of 2009, Trish began the intensive process of becoming certified as an Executive, Career and Life Coach. In June of 2010 Trish achieved the designation of CPC (certified professional coach).
Trish and Kevin enjoyed visiting bed and breakfasts while on their annual anniversary golf vacations since the early years of their marriage. They had a dream of finding and developing their own inn since 1990. In October of 2009 they decided now was the time. After an extensive search throughout New England, North Carolina, Virginia and other locations they found this National Historic Registry property known as Mostly Hall in Falmouth, Massachusetts which they have renamed The Captain’s Manor Inn. Together they have worked to create a beautiful bed & breakfast characterized by simple elegance and a sense of peace where guests can visit from around the corner and around the world. Memorial Day Weekend of 2010 marked the grand opening of the Inn.
Restoring the Inn has truly been a labor of love. Trish and Kevin have used their diverse and complementary talents to make your stay a pleasurable one. We look forward to being your hosts.
