Our humble Puppy Pad has been updated and we have come up with a new name, The Dogwood Suite! You will notice the new hardwood floors in the bedroom, new furniture in the sitting area including two big soft chairs, a loveseat sofabed, large coffee table, and a television. The kitchen area now has it's own little sitting area in addition to the kitchen table. We are excited about these changes and updates! Check it out.
With an early winter blast coming through Virginia, we have the fireplace in the Great Room all fired up for our guests! I imagine we'll be tossing logs on all weekend. This year we are working on a new dining room configuration that will encourage our guests to enjoy the large window looking out over pasture and the fireplace during breakfast.
Now that the busy Fall season is winding down, we hope you will come join us by this cozy fire this Winter. We are open throughout the Holidays and beyond!
After a very busy weekend, and with no guests staying on a Sunday night, I decided to do something we almost never get a chance to do... lock the doors, turn out the lights, and head out to enjoy some of the fun things we are always recommending to our guests! We ended up spending most of the afternoon at Mountfair Vineyards, where they were hosting their Corks & Chords event. Several acoustic guitar singer/songwriters took their turn on stage as the rest of us sat back and enjoyed the music with our bottles of wine. It was a supremely enjoyable time!
We are so excited to see a fresh coat of paint going up on our Farmhouse! This past winter was rough on the old gal and the new paint will really freshen her up. The old Farmhouse was built in 1905 and we remodeled it many years ago to serve as additional rooms for our guests. We even met some of the members of the original family who built the place! The house is truly a part of Sugar Hollow heritage.
Innkeepers look forward to days like this, when everything shuts down and you have a chance to catch up with yourself and all the things that didn't get done when the sun was shining! These late winter snows are always a surprise, and when they are this pretty, it is kind of fun, as long as the snow doesn't over stay its welcome.
