Kevin and Cynthia Samsel relocated from California to Lees Summit, Missouri in 2017. They married in Northern California and spent their honeymoon at a Bed and Breakfast on the Oregon Coast. They enjoyed it so much, they made it a tradition to visit other Inns for their anniversaries and dreamed about operating a B&B themselves someday. 

Cynthia is a Chef who has worked in restaurants, taught cooking classes, and owned Classic Catering in Northern California. She catered to many celebrities in her work with Bill Graham Presents in San Francisco, where she developed her style of world fusion cuisine. With a Fine Arts degree, Cynthia has blended her tallents for creating visual and edible art. 

Kevin retired from his 20-year career as a public employee. He started his handyman business after relocating to Missouri and enjoys doing projects for others. 

Kevin and Cynthia have two adult children and four grandchildren. They hosted college-aged international exchange students in their home for over 20 years. They have enjoyed travels visiting many of their former students and their families, enabling Cynthia to further her international culinary expertise.
Kevin and Cynthia enjoy sharing the gift of hospitality and look forward to the next phase of their lives as the new hosts of The Historic Browning.
