Hibernating at the Inn

As cooler temperatures draw people indoors, having plenty of materials on hand can help you pass the time...

You can cozy up with a good book next to the fire.

Read a magazine.

Or watch your favorite movie.

Halloween Decorating Ideas

Fall is finally here and we enjoy decorating the inn for holidays. For Halloween, we use a Martha Stewart idea of creating ghosts in the window. This is an easy do-it-yourself project:
  • Purchase vellum at an art store in poster-board size sheets.
  • Draw one ghost on each sheet of vellum.
  • Cut out the ghost and tape to the inside of your window.

  • Last year we decorated the foyer table with gourds bought at the Locust Grove Antique Show; they were made by Holly Branch Gourds.

    Happy Halloween!
