March Getaways Planned for You 5 Feb 2016, 9:55 am
Looking for something to do in that Month between Winter and Spring? “Another of life’s ironies is to have housecleaning, gardening and spring fever all come at the same time.” So if you have Spring Fever in March, we have several fun activities happening at our Inn. On Saturday, March 19 we have invited two authors to visit with our guests. Learn how they began writing a book, how they would write another one or how it was to write three books that follow each other. Then the following weekend, March 25-26, plan to have your sleuth hat on to solve a mystery. The weekend is Murder Mystery Weekend with hor d’oeuvres and wine to enjoy the mystery.

Oct 31-Nov 1 is our annual Halloween weekend with treats to eat, costumes to judge for the best and fun for all who stay with us.
Add horseback riding or a carriage ride to your stay and enjoy the colored leaves on your ride. Consider a massage for both of you during your visit, in your own room. This is relaxing and so much fun to do together. Then have dinner at one of several restaurants we recommend on our website, including The Grill House, Four Roses Café or Salt of the Earth. Return to your whirlpool in your room and relax all over again. Arising in the morning to another gourmet breakfast and conversation to learn more from the hostess or other guests at breakfast.
All of your fall travel is even better with our Three Day Getaway. Stay three nights and the third night is on us.
