We often stay at the lovely old Sherwood Inn--you can check it out, here: http://www.thesherwoodinn.com/
The inn was built way back in 1807, and has been owned since 1974 by a friend of ours, Bill Eberhardt. Who also is a member of the club my husband manages. I think the reason we love staying at the Sherwood so much is because of the way one feels there--like we've stepped back in time. There is an elegant restaurant (a converted old front porch) overlooking Lake Skaneateles:
And here's the warming fireplace that greets you in the lobby:
Big Daddy checking in and carrying our bags upstairs (I was too busy snapping photos!):
Here's the hallway outside our 2nd floor suite:
Just THINK of the history that's happened here!
Every room is a little different, and loaded with antiques. I SO wanted to steal this armoire!:
(Just so you know, the wallpaper in our room wasn't this neon pink--that's my stupid camera again. I would say it was more of a dark raspberry--very elegant, and not at all Vegas)
Here's some snaps of our 2 room suite:
That's right, baby--a two person soaker--jacuzzi tub! I'm not going to say any more about what happened here except: after dinner glasses of Amaretto. "Nuff said!
Oh, did I mention that we were in Skaneateles during the coldest two days of the winter so far? Negative 15 that night (much worse at home--negative 32!), so this is how the frozen lake looked from our window:
People were actually ice fishing when we were there. I was sooo tempted to walk out onto the lake, but in the end was much too chicken!
I suppose you'd like a photo of the outside of the Inn--it's a beautiful and distinctive colonial blue. And check out those icecicles--again, Lollie, nature's most perfect murder weapon!:
Sigh--I wanna go back! Hey you, come back soon for some warming Lentil and Sausage soup!
TOP 3 THINGS I'M GRATEFUL FOR TODAY:
1. I'm grateful that today is "cut and color" day--my hair is a BUSH with dark roots! Pretty!
2. I'm grateful that Big Daddy is eating out with auditors tonite--it's The Oprah network, popcorn and wine for mommy!
3. I'm grateful for the pretty classical guitar music that's playing on my stereo as I type away--I can feel my blood pressure lowering by the minute
