Your Hosts

The Downs Family

Jereme and Jennifer have been married for over 20 years and have three amazing little Texans. They both grew up in the Dallas area and never want to live anywhere else!

Jennifer has been scrapbooking since she was able to safely play with scissors, and opening her very own craft retreats with her family has been a dream come true. She knew that she would love crafting, and sharing it with other crafters would be wonderful, but she never counted on the amazing friendships that would develop along the way. That is truly an immeasurable blessing!

Jennifer received her master’s degree from UNT and has been putting it to use ever since.

Jereme received his bachelor’s degree from UTA.  In addition to building this website, he loves adding all the tech you’ll find around the retreat.  He gets his hands dirty too – Jereme handles the constant upgrades and improvements to the inn, always keeping it new and fresh.  He is also your personal on-call handyman – if you have something that needs attention during your stay, he’s the one you’ll meet.

The Deloza Family

Ramiro and Ana Deloza are the heroes behind the scenes.  Before you arrive, they spend hours sanitizing and cleaning the house so it’s perfect, every time.  They have been helping us maintain our beautiful retreats since we opened in 2008!

We are very blessed to have them in our lives and attribute Memory Lane Inn’s success and our guests happiness to the hard work they happily provide.
