Fun Pre-Christmas Idea
 
Write your  Christmas Cards by the Fire
 As we approach Thanksgiving we all realize that it marks the beginning of our holiday season. Personally I savor writing to all the friends and relatives I haven't communicated with since the past holiday, so I often put if off because I want it to be special. A few years, I put it off too long and only got a few critical cards out, leaving me feeling like I had left something important undone.  
 
It prompted a wonderful idea of getting away just to cherish the time to write those cards. So consider taking a one night stay out of your busy pre-holiday schedule, bring your cards and your favorite pen, and we'll set you up in front of a roaring fire, we'll mull the cider, and layout the warm cookies. 
 
Call it a Card Writing Package, but there is no cost other than the room and pick up a room in the Inn for $88. and you can rejuvinate, including homemade breakfast. 
 
Then, we'll hand deliver your cards to our local Postmaster so he can  postmark them from the Village of Ephraim, Door County!   
 
Call our toll-free number 800.324.5427 to book your chair by the fire!
