Either you say goodbye to an era when your grandparents pass on or you

embrace the memories and continue to build them for your own family.

It all began in 1960 for me. I was born into a large extended DeLand, Florida family. My grandparents owned Beacon Dairies, fondly known as Jacobs Dairy DeLand.

For many years, my grandmother managed the Western Union downtown. After she retired in the mid-1970s, she opened a Merle Norman Studio & Boutique on Woodland Boulevard for a few years.

Although I grew up in the New Orleans area, we spent summers and many holidays on the farm with our beloved grandparents. I was just a few months old the first summer I spent in DeLand. It was the beginning of an era and a lifetime of memories shared with a large extended family and friends. We explored the farm daily and enjoyed huge family picnics complete with a bonfire on the bank of Lake Talmadge. We swam in the cold waters of DeLeon Springs, and played in the surf of Daytona and New Smyrna Beaches. We visited the Stetson University fountain at night and were fascinated when the water changed colors. We were building memories.

Fast Forward to 2017

We lost our grandfather years ago, but we were fortunate to have our grandmother with us until 2016. She passed away not long after her 100th birthday. In the summer of 2017, I was able to purchase her home from my aunt. Here is where my daughter and I plan to continue building memories for her children during summers and holiday visits to DeLand.

We are happy to share our home with you to rest, relax, recharge and build memories with the people you enjoy and love the most.

As this journey progresses, we will share photos and updates to the bungalow, as well as sharing some of our favorite places in greater DeLand in hopes they may become favorites of yours too.

Won’t you come along?
