Welcome to "The Cora Needham House" web site. I hope you will enjoy becoming familiar with my home, the many attractions, and events in this area, and our philosophy of hospitality. I hope you'll want to make us your "home away from home".

Having always been a "people person", it came as no surprise to friends and family when, following retirement from a lengthy teaching career, I decided to convert my home into a "B & B". Hostessing such a diverse group of guests from all over the world, makes me a very "happy camper".

Conversation, laughter, life stories, and group therapy abound among guests, and I always play an active role. Long term friendships are made, and I feel as if I have an extended family.

My passions in life are varied, but creatively centered, and include: music of all kinds: piano , and voice teacher; 30 years as a general music teacher; NYC Opera & Oratorio career; church soloist, Master's degree studies in voice, and dramatics at "The Juilliard School of Music"; Doctoral studies at the University of Massachusetts in musicology and voice; choral conducting; summer musical theatre director; concert; opera, and theatre junky; art lover, and collector; resulting in miniature art galleries in every room of the "B&B"; art history background, and museum junky; interior decorating with my own business "Eclectic Interiors"; Wedding Planner having done Weddings both at The Cora Needham House, and Rose Cliff Mansion in Newport; RI! Gardening, and garden design; evidenced at The Cora Needham House; literature, and writing; having worked at McGraw-Hill Publishers in NYC as an Editorial Assistant; extensive travel; my favorite trip being to Russia as a teacher; amateur photography; especially recording guest visits; in the sports arena: swimming, and tennis instructor; biking; walking, and hiking; and saving the best for last; MOM to three great kids; two daughters; a son, and my great cat companion; Muffin; who's a people lover too.

I think you will find my home relaxing, romantic, colorful, cozy, elegant, unique, comfortable, and welcoming.

It's with the greatest enthusiasm, and excitement that I await your arrival. Each one of you is special to me, and I will do everything in my power to accommodate your needs.

Your hostess, and host,

Maggie & Muffin Ullery
