Suttons Bay, MI—It’s more than Inn guest rooms getting a renovation this winter. The Inn at Black Star Farms has a new face welcoming guests and leading the guest services team. Following a successful career in healthcare, Samantha Eberhardt made the decision to leave, to follow her heart and pursue a career in what she was most passionate for.
With 15-plus years’ experience in guest services, she found herself back in school for Hospitality Management and Tourism and looking to better align her career with her passion–people. She then found Black Star Farms.
Moving from Dayton, OH, Ms. Eberhardt now calls Traverse City home and has taken a position at Black Star Farms as Inn Manager, leading the team that helped bring the Inn recognition in 2020 by USA Today as ‘Best Wine Country Hotel.’
