We just finished our biggest season of the year. Each fall, we enjoy seeing so many of our regular friends as well as a good number of new guests who have come to the mountains to see the beautiful fall colors. The colors this year were exceptionally brilliant. They started earlier than usual and lasted throughout all of October. In fact there is still some nice color around. We had a good number of guests all month and enjoyed each one of them.
One of the comments I hear regularly and noticed more that usual during October was “You have the nicest people come here”. We have known that for years and we agree. As much as I love to think that our guests come for my pleasing personality, they really come for the view, the food, and the other guests. In truth, we realize that our guests are our biggest asset. Those who really fit in we tend to call “Hemlock Inn Folks”. They love the inn, love the peaceful atmosphere of our setting, and love being with other people.
How can you identify them? It’s pretty easy. They are usually soft spoken, kind, gentle people who love to share stories of their families and events in their lives. They enjoy simple pleasures like a hot cup of coffee, a roaring fire, family style meals, nature’s beauty, and good conversation. We see them sitting around the fire before breakfast solving the world’s problems, sharing a laugh around the tables at mealtime, and sitting on the porch watching the sunset. They enjoy life and their friends. We are so glad they are our friends as well.
You know Hemlock Inn Folks. If you are reading this, you are probably one of them. Thanks. We can’t wait til your next visit.
PS…. Be sure to check out our winter specials celebrating the 60th Anniversary of the inn….$60 per person per night. The week after Christmas, MLK weekend in January, and Presidents Day weekend (formally known as Mort’s Birthday) in February
