Porches HeaderWe're spending the next few days working off our Thanksgiving feasts by preparing our 32 Christmas trees - white spruce, Frasier fur and blue spruce in our lobby - and our creches, kissing balls, mistletoe and an array of other festive finery for our annual month-long holiday celebration.  From December 4th onward, you'll hear live music throughout the Inn while enjoying the scent of hot mulled cider and our roaring lobby fireplace. A midweek pre-holiday escape is an affordable way to take a break - squeeze in a little shopping for artisan goods in our Gift Shop (featuring locally-made items) or name-brand shopping at the nearby Prime Outlets in Lee. Check out our website to learn about our last minute deals or call today to reserve  your getaway and you'll be happy you did...
