“Brad, Karen, Cassie, and Vic sold the Wishmaker House B&B and Winery to Don and Jennifer Vanmeter on June 8, 2018. Brad and Karen wanted to spend more time relaxing with their friends and family, while Cassie and Vic hoped to spend more time together with their children, Ryder and Scarlett. The Smiths and Swishers have enjoyed hosting all of our wonderful guests over the years! It has truly been an amazing adventure. We wish Don and Jennifer the best of luck in their new venture.”
