Whole new look to the website 22 Mar 2013, 4:14 am
When we took over the Hummingbird Inn, almost five years ago now, we also got the existing website, which had just been updated. But that was five years ago, and in tech time, that is a lifetime. So we took on the challenge, and updated it again. New look, new color scheme…..more contemporary and in line with this moments standards. Let us know what you think.
Sweet Maple Everything 8 Mar 2011, 5:39 pm
If you have a craving for maple….maple donuts…maple candy…maple anything…you have got to get yourself to the Highland Maple Festival, March 12-13 and 19-20. Its just down the road a bit from the Hummingbird Inn in Goshen, and it is such a pretty drive. You can take the Sugar Tour around Highland County, and visit any one of a half-dozen sugar camps. Or head straight for Monterey, where all the fun is centered. Its for the sweetness in you.
Beautiful Snow Day in Goshen! 26 Jan 2011, 5:39 pm
Couldn’t let the day go by without sharing the beautiful winter wonderland we have outside the Hummingbird Inn… It’s been such a mild winter, this was quite a treat… Only have 4 or 5 inches, but I don’t think it will last long – its just not that cold! Wish you were here to see it!
A Puzzling Day at the Hummingbird Inn 26 Jan 2011, 6:22 am
Started out with great enthusiasm, which for Innkeeper Dan lasted about 10 minutes. The rest of the puzzlers, Dee and Teresa and Innkeeper Patty ( not in this picture ) worked thru the night and the next couple of days, to finish not one, but two 1000 piece puzzles. So next time you visit the Hummingbird Inn, a Lexington VA area bed and breakfast, and that empty table beckons, rest assured we can find a challenging puzzle for you too!!
