In June 1996, the Inn changed ownership when Wanda Hinshaw and Lyle Schoenfeldt, with daughter, Sarah, moved back to Wanda’s home state from Texas. Wanda’s sister, Kay Philipp, with her family had made Watauga County home for many years. Kay and Wanda were sister Innkeepers, just as in the old days, when Josie’s sister, Leona, had worked with her at the Inn. Interestingly, the former innkeepers are natives of the same Randolph County where Joseph Mast’s family lived in the 1700s.
