We hope you enjoy all of the sculptures on the grounds at Kapp and Kappy Bed and Breakfast. Many of these are integrated with the gardens, so you might not even see them unless you look closely. The artist for most of the sculptures is Christi Kapp, one of Kapp and Kappy’s Innkeepers.
Christi Genet Kapp practices the polymathic way. She creates and connects combinations of people, processes and things. She does this in a variety of ways including sculpting, leather work, writing, starting/growing/selling businesses, or working as an information technology leader and consultant. Her artistic experience includes motorcycle concept design, metal work, leather work, and graphic design for Art In Motion, LLC. Mediums she uses most often include metal, leather art, pencils and fiber.
At the core of each art piece that Christi creates you will find concepts of “BE-ing”, achieving , innovating and triumph. Her art is practice for innovation. If she can imagine it, she can do it, and through her art she wants to teach everyone else to think and succeed the same way.

You might think of Kissimmee as a bustling tourist area, but take a deeper look. Its historic downtown can be surprisingly relaxing and enjoyable. Kissimmee is in a redevelopment renaissance with many of the same buildings present as were standing over 100 years ago. Yet we have exciting new developments in progress downtown, lots of parking, and new industries beginning at the Advanced Manufacturing Center.

In March of 1918, Mrs. Claude Harper showed off her hospitality at her home on Clyde Ave in Kissimmee. "Spacious rooms were attractive with cut flowers and ferns arranged in a color scheme of green and white as a reminder of St. Patrick's Day." Mrs. Claude Harper was married to the son of Henry Harper, an early resident at 21 N Clyde Ave. Christi and Tom, the innkeepers at Kapp and Kappy B&B now enjoy treating people to good food and genuine company, in the very same spacious rooms.
A lot of things have sped up since 1918, but you can still enjoy the same relaxing pace in Historic Downtown Kissimmee by walking around.
Stroll on the sidewalks in the South Beaumont Historic District, look at the brick Oak-lined streets, and see many homes that were built at the turn of the last century. No two homes are alike. Or take a bike ride on the Shingle Creek Regional Trail, enjoy the butterflies at our B&B, go fishing in Lake Toho, or just relax in Lakefront park. Learn more about area activities here
