The leaves are gone and the season's first ground covering snow has arrived...
We are now closed for our between-seasons "break". Thanks to all of our guests who made it possible for us to have our BEST year...EVER!!!
We're now in the midst of our bucket list of projects. In addition to the usual prep of the gardens for winter and "scrubbing" of the inn from top to bottom, our plans include completion of the dining room renovation, completion of the guest bathroom renovations, "detailing" our Garland stove (aka The Beast), installation of new TVs in the great room & game room (not as minor a chore as one would think...), replacing the inventory of guest towels, updating our wine list (again???) and fine-tuning the winter menu for The Shameless Carnivore. Will we finish in time?
Once that's done, we're off to VA for Thanksgiving with family and then two weeks in Panama. Why Panama? Firstly, we've never been there. Secondly, we hear that it's the undeveloped gem of Central America, and we want to get there before it's "discovered". We're definitely looking forward to the break. Our cats also love it because they have a few weeks to be spoiled rotten by their favorite inn-sitter!
Wishing you all a very Happy Thanksgiving!
