The votes are not all in yet, but….

…we think we know the winner of our coffee tasting.  NO SPOLERS here, though, the month is certainly not over yet.   It’s just that the overwhelming majority of people participating have chosen the same coffee.  So much for intrigue.  We still have two more weeks to go before our BIG REVEAL!

The sounds of springtime

It was a beautiful weekend here at Brampton Inn.  The first really warm and sunny weekend we’ve had in a long time. Walking back to the inn after checking some guests into a cottage, I was struck by the number of spring-like sounds I heard.  Of course, the birds are chirping like they’ve never chirped…

Pecan Shortbread Recipe and Coffee Tasting Month

“The S’Mores Club” Sorry, it’s not a dessert club, but we think you’ll love it just the same. Our return guests now have one more reason to come back for s’more time at the Brampton: Stay 5 nights and your 6th night will be 50% off if it falls on a Friday, Saturday or Sunday…

A little history lesson…

One of the first things folks often ask when visiting Brampton is “How old is the house?” along with “What is the history of the place?”   Given that 2010 marks the 150th birthday of the house (well, the “newer” part is 150; the older, clapboard sided part was built in the 1830’s), we thought we’d…
