From Envelopes to Omelettes: Mike The Mailman Has A New Job

After serving postcards and packages for decades, Mike the Mailman has decided to start serving eggs and coffee to the State College area. Mike the Mailman (and Mary’s) Bed and Breakfast is open and ready for business in Happy Valley with multiple rooms for rent.

Starting at $400 a weekend, guests can stay in their own rooms with an adjoining bathroom but for $500 a weekend, guests can have an en suite bathroom. A first class continental breakfast is included as well and, as was the case at the post office, good conversation is sure to be on the menu. The couples Facebook page says there are still openings left for home football weekends this year.

They’re encouraging people to call and find out more. “My wife and I hope you all can come and stay with us. We’re not sure who will have more fun- you or us,” Mike wrote in a comment. It seems that after dealing with the 24/7 hustle of coordinating a post office, Mike Herr needs something to keep him busy in retirement. To book a weekend or find out more, you can call 814-466-4377 or email [email protected]
