Christmas at the Inn

November 30, 2016 by jacobrohrbach

Christmas is our favorite time of year at the Inn.  As soon as Thanksgiving is over the decorations come out and Christmas music is playing 24/7 in the Gathering Room.  Every room gets a decorated tree, a wreath on the door and special decorations throughout the room to make guests feel at home for the holidays.  Each day you can smell a new batch of cookies or holiday treats being made as more decorations are added inside and out.  Maya and Zoey even get into the festive spirit…  So whether you’ve been Naughty or Nice, we’re sure Jolly Old St. Nick will stop by to pay you a visit at the Inn.
