Grand Living B&B

Mi casa es su casa. That phrase just about sums up Gloria Jobs’ business philosophy. When guests stay at Grand Living Bed and Breakfast, which she owns with her husband, Bill, Gloria wants them to feel right at home. “We treat them like family,” she says. “A lot of our guests extend their stays because they feel so comfortable with us.” Or maybe they stay for her gourmet breakfasts, which she prepares from scratch daily. After Gloria declared that her dream was to own and operate a B&B, the Jobses relocated from Minnesota to start their next chapter. The 8,000-square-foot, six-room house sits just outside downtown Williams and reflects their love of beautiful things. Rooms are filled with artwork and antiques from their travels around the globe, and, despite being a log home, the place is hardly rustic — creature comforts such as plush linens, Wi-Fi and, yes, television are available. For Gloria, this home truly is where her heart is, and she and Bill plan to stay at Grand Living for the long haul. “I put my love into it,” she says. “And here we are.”
