The Steward House Bed and Breakfast, 32 East Main St., the Village of Panama, NY combines antique style and contemporary comfort with aplomb. Owners Pam and John Brown have refreshed the white 1826 Steward House easing it smack dab into the 21st century, yet retaining the elegant but simple beauty of their home’s Greek Revival architecture. The Steward House may be the newest Chautauqua County B&B, opening in summer 2016, but it celebrates the county’s almost two century old architectural heritage. The Steward House B&B enjoys a great location, location, location. Panama Rocks is just up the road. Chautauqua Institution is a ten minute direct shot down the Panama- Stedman Road. It’s about 20 minutes to Jamestown, NY. First and foremost this is the Brown’s home and that sense of returning to well-loved shelter permeates a visit. It is a home away from home for guests. That marriage of public and private, the old and the new, offers a stay

Among a host of historian roles Pam is the Village of Panama and Harmony Township historian and is a human “Alexa” when it comes to local history. Visitors can choose among their adjoining equally spacious baths. All the rooms are lovely, but the gold room is special.

We bought a house and have lived here for umpteen years and we’ve “managed”. No, this doesn’t work well and we could use more of that. Perhaps you’ve considered renovating, just a bit....maybe.

Send a Public Proclamation of Love to Someone Special In Your Life


the trick. I love the song, “The Broken Road”, co-written by Marcus Hummon, Bobby Boyd and Jeff Hanna, sung by The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band and Rascal Flatts. I blended some of those lyrics with lyrics from “You’re My Best Friend”, written by John Deacon and sang by Queen, which we claimed as our “our song” when we reunited. Along with the lyrics, I also included my own heartfelt message: “My Proclamation of Love to You…I set out on a narrow way many years

I am writing this article in honor of my husband, Rick. This year we have been together 37 years, married 35. Our relationship took seed when my sister married Rick’s childhood best friend. true love along the broken At 17, he fell in love with road…But I got lost a time or two…Wiped my brow wanted was to get a ride in and kept pushing through…I couldn’t see how every sign his father’s Jaguar.

You taught me I was home in the mountains of lovable and how to express Blue Ridge, GA; and, a love. You have loved me sweet dog, Max. Along with in my darkest of days and that, we have had our share even when there were times of ups and downs; good you wish you could have times and bad.

Rick and I had invited You made me feel safe and guests over for a “35 Year because of you I learned to Celebration Bash”. I took trust.

You have been he couldn’t believe me when stability, security, strength, I said how much he means to wisdom and humor. You me, how much better my life taught me how to laugh has been since being with and even to have some sick him, perhaps proclaiming it humor like you.

This much I know is true…That God blessed the broken road…That led me straight to you”. Rick was stunned and deeply touched by my public profession of love, gratitude and the wonderful life we share together. It is my hope that by sharing my proclamation of love to my husband, my best friend, it may inspire you to do the same for someone special in your life. The message could be for love or it could be to honor someone or offer a “thank you”. Perhaps that someone is your spouse; partner; friend; family member; coworker; teacher; care-taker; a stranger who assisted you in a time of need. Whomever it is for, however you choose to create it, the intention of it will be to honor and respect; to share gratitude and thankfulness; to express your heartfelt proclamation!

Steward Bed and Breakfast can provide the space, however outside catering is required. The Browns are comfortable with their role as host and business owners.
