That time of the year…again!?!

How is it possible that our last post was in October??  It seems to me that there is a kind of time-warp that goes on around this time of the year: the closer it gets to December 31, the faster the days fly by. So now the inn is decked out in all its’ glory: …

Colorful Autumn

The color of the leaves couldn’t possibly be more brilliant than they are right now. It never seizes to amaze me how spectacular the fall is on the Eastern Shore. The Canada geese arrived in early September and have been moving and honking about happily. They might be the bane of many a golf course…

Rita’s favorite quotations from guests…

Mulberry Cottage is done and ready for your inspection!!!

Michael did it, Mulberry cottage is done.   Even if I say so myself it’s gorgeous. Pictures to follow soon. Now we are waiting for warmer weather so the grass and the plants can grow. Other than that the inside is ready for our discerning guests. The biggest hit seems to be the huge infinity tub on…

Bring a mag, get a mug!!
