Busy Veterans Day 2011

On Thursday, 11/10/11, we were honored to host a very special group of guests. More than half of the people you see in these pictures served our country in the armed forces. (Sorry, we missed a few snapshots!) We hosted active personnel and veterans of the US Army, the US Air Force, the US Navy, and the US Marines. All of these wonderful folks were SO appreciative of our small gift of a free night's stay at Pheasant Field! I was humbled - it was such a small thing compared to their service to our country. We salute these wonderful folks!


After we cleaned all the rooms from the B&Bs for Vets special night, we then hosted a women's retreat from St. Luke's Episcopal Church in Mechanicsburg. Twenty women sang, prayed, laughed, ate, and even played together during the retreat led by Sue Schmidt. We enjoy having that special "spirit" in this place! Thank you for allowing us to be a part of your retreat!

We are now awaiting tonight's check-ins: some people planning to move to our area so they are here on a property search; equestrians going south from Canada (looking for warm weather!); a mom with her two daughters who came to visit Meadowbrooke Gourds; and a few weekend getaway couples. There are so many reasons to visit the Cumberland Valley! Plan a little quiet escape before the busy-ness of the holiday season! Book now!
P.S. You will not see any Christmas decorations here until after Thanksgiving!
