Jamie Gallagher, co-owner of Shadow Lawn Inn, said “The sale is bittersweet. The Inn has been an integral part of our family for so many years. We purchased the Inn from my parents in 2010. I essentially grew up on this property. We have been honoured to serve the community through Shadow Lawn Inn and have had the privilege to be part of so many memorable occasions for families here in our community. We have met so many great people through this business and we are very happy and pleased to see it carried on as an Inn, restaurant and a central part of Rothesay. We are leaving the Inn in very good hands with Tracy and Martin”.
