in Business Matters,News

Many residents of the region as well as visitors will welcome the reopening on May 6 of Z Corners Inn in Bridgewater Corners located just east of the junction of Routes 4 and 100A. Purchased less than a year ago by Paul and Caroline Zemba, the building has undergone an impressive transformation. Much has been done to restore the building both inside and out to its original luster. Diners will appreciate the comfort of the new chairs and tables as well as the warmth of the completely repainted interior. All add to a sense of brightness and openness while the exterior sports new windows, entrance including new handicap ramp, deck and fresh coat of paint. The fully licensed bar has a fine selection of wines as well as a variety of popular beers on draft.
The back of the house features a spacious and newly equipped kitchen. It is the “office” of Chef Guillermo Arias whose Mediterranean flair adds zest to a menu of local produce.
Paul and Caroline came to Vermont from Croton-on-Hudson in pursuit of the dreams of son, Bryan, Junior World Champion in Dual Moguls. A 2010 graduate of both WUHS and the Killington Mountain School, Bryan has medaled in skiing competition on three continents, North America, Europe, and Australia. Supporting anyone in international competitive sports is a major commitment. Paul and Caroline willingly continue to make this level of support for their son.
The Zemba couple complement one another in the operation of Z Corners Inn. Caroline has always enjoyed cooking. She worked at Sun Up Bakery in Killington for many years prior to purchasing the inn while Paul owned a commercial building contractor business in New York.
In addition to the 48 guests that can be accommodated inside, there will be seating for 32 diners outside on the new deck. Upstairs, four completely remodeled rooms and a common room will be available for overnight guests by early summer.
Z Corners Inn will open May 6 for dining from 5 – 10 p.m. Thursdays through Mondays. Reservations for Mother’s Day are now being accepted with seating from 3 p.m. – 10 p.m.

Hector Santos To Be At Yankee Bookshop May 1
The Yankee Bookshop will host well-known stone mason and artist Hector Mason Sunday, May 1 at 7 PM. Hector will discuss elements of his new book The Modern Stone Age as well as demonstrate stone-building techniques by building a small dry stone wall in the bookstore.
Santos launched his stone masonry career in 1982. Sixteen years later while pursuing his great admiration of Neolithic structures, Santos exhibited a large sculpture at Charlet Davenport’s annual Sculpture Fest. Response to his exhibit has generated a variety of sculptures both large and small that now grace the lawns and homes of many in the region.
In addition to his stone wall demonstration, Santos will answer questions and sign his new book that pictures his work and how-to techniques for building stone walls.

The Jackson House And Morsels
Team To Host
Dinner Party
Rick and Kathy Terwelp, the new owners of The Jackson House have been quietly restoring the property to its original luster over the course of the past year. Their immediate focus has been to operate the charming inn as a B & B while settling in to their new endeavor before taking on the challenges of a full-time restaurant.
Recently, Rick and Kathy teamed with Eli Morse, formerly associated with Keeper’s Café but now offering catering services under the name Morsels, to host a dinner party as an auction item to benefit of the Thompson Senior Center’s annual fund raiser. Two weeks ago, The Jackson House and Eli Morse hosted the successful bidder, Liza Deignan Bellmore and a group of friends for an outstanding meal and good conversation.
While there are no immediate plans for opening the restaurant beyond presently serving their overnight guests breakfast, The Jackson House is pleased for having thus far hosted five dinner parties as the couple gradually expands the gracious hospitality of this historic inn.
