Captain Kinne House


Your Hosts

Ted and Molly Poister, your convivial hosts, welcome you to the Captain Kinne House Bed and Breakfast! Molly grew up in the Finger Lakes, in nearby Interlaken, where her father was the last of the country doctors who made house-calls all around this area. Ted grew up in Syracuse and met Molly in the Chapel Choir at Syracuse University, which was directed by his father.

They were married nearly 50 years ago and spent their first two years together as Peace Corps volunteers in Valdivia, Chile. Since then they have lived in Louisiana, Pennsylvania, and Maryland, and they now divide their time between Atlanta, Georgia, and the Kinne House. Molly is a caterer who has always wanted to run a Bed & Breakfast. Ted, who is a professor at Georgia State University, has always loved the land between the lakes, and so they settled on the beautiful old Kinne House and farmstead as the perfect home to welcome guests in a relaxed and gracious setting. They have faithfully restored the house and outbuildings while adding modern amenities, and they hope you will enjoy it as much as they do.

Molly and Ted will welcome you when you arrive, help you get settled and show you around the property if you like.

Begin your day with an incredible breakfast prepared by Molly, featuring local, fresh ingredients and all Molly’s favorite recipes.
