Spring at Last!

Well, its about time. Spring has sprung and we are getting excited about getting the inn ready for the warm weather season.

We will be doing a lot of landscaping this season, especially around the new addition. But lots of color will abound around the whole property with all sorts of flowers and greenery. We're also adding a vegetable garden to add that extra bit of freshness to our already wonderful breakfasts.

Speaking of breakfasts...We've added a new recipe to our morning repetoire. You can find our delicious Stony Creek Scones served up with our homemade Devonshire Cream. Our scones are made with a variety of fruits or sometimes plain with a dusting of cinnamon sugar. They are already a hit with the guests.

Well, off to the garden to till and hoe. Hope to see you all real soon. Happy Spring everyone.

60th Birthday Party at the Inn at Stony Creek

This past Saturday eve (March 14th) we had a family of guests here celebrating the husbands 60th Birtyhday. It was a surprise and his wife made up a story to get him here, but he was sure fooled and stunned when he walked in the front door! They were experts at making green apple Martini's and picked out the best Dark Chocolate Torte I have ever tasted from the Georgia Cafe in Manahattan. The family went out for a celebratory dinner at a local restaurant, The Landmark, and then returned to the Inn for desert and coffee....and more Martini's. A great time was had by all and they mentioned returning for another party in the future. We really enjoyed hosting them!

The Carriage House addition is looking good!

During the Fall of 2008, we built the Stony Creek Carriage House addition and it blended surprising well with the existing Inn. We have a few more details to finish on the outside this Spring. The landscaping will be started as soon as the weather warms and we are looking forward to putting in a blue stone patio where we can serve afternoon tea over looking Mount Adam! Shortly thereafter we will start the new office area for check in and our new personal living quarters. Of course it will be for all to enjoy if you care to check it out!. Then our final phase will be the 6th guest room with private entrance, jacuzzi and fireplace. It will be a challenging year for us, like everyone else trying to balance what we finish and these difficult economic times. We are hoping The European Tourists start coming for sight seeing and shopping at Woodbury Common starting in April. And.........of course our American guests who are the mainstay of our business! Come see what we have accomplished thus far, relax and visit one of Warwick's Wineries. Don't forget the Warwick Drive Inn Movie on a summer night!
