About Us to Our Story
The Ava House is a dream come true for Delilah and Michael. Although they met and lived in Miami, Florida for over 30 years, their dream was to one day move to the country and own a Bed & Breakfast. Four years ago, they found themselves in Dahlonega and fell in love with the town and the people. After many years of searching, they found The Ava House on June 16th, 2017 on the day of their 12th year wedding anniversary. They knew it was meant to be.
Michael retired from public service in 2014 and Delilah worked in the hospitality industry for more than 25 years with hotel chains such as Marriott, Hyatt and Starwood Hotels & Resorts. Michael and Delilah have five children and five grandchildren currently living in Miami, Florida and Columbus, Ohio.
