Santa came to Pheasant Field Bed & Breakfast

Santa arrived at Pheasant Field B&B and brought a new floor for Boxwood Cottage! It's hard to get a good picture of a floor but take a look at this:
This new flooring looks great and adds more character the room than the carpeting that was there. Come enjoy the new look!

Looking ahead to 2012 - we plan to put new siding on the wood portion of the barn. The wood that's there now was installed in the 1970's and just does not hold paint well. The new siding will be maintenance-free (Yea!) and will help keep the horses warm.

Remember that our "Cabin Fever" special will be in effect for January. Stay two nights for the price of one!

We wish all of you a healthy, happy, prosperous, and mobile (hint: come visit us at Pheasant Field Bed & Breakfast) New Year!

It's Winter - time for a cozy getaway!

It's official - today is the Winter Solstice - the first day of winter! We in the northern hemisphere have the least amount of sunlight of any other day of the year. You can spend some time by the fireplace in one of the rooms at Pheasant Field Bed & Breakfast to warm up your winter days or nights. In January, we will offer a sure cure for Cabin Fever - stay 2 consecutive nights and pay for only one! When you combine our Cabin Fever special with discount lift tickets for skiing at Roundtop Mountain Resort, you will have started your new year with big savings!

There is still time for a last minute Gift Certificate for a stay at Pheasant Field B&B. We will send the Gift Certificate electronically to beat the Christmas countdown.

We still have rooms open for New Year's Eve. You get a free admission to First Night with your stay at Pheasant Field B&B. Make your reservation now to celebrate the beginning of 2012!

We wish you a very Merry Christmas and health, happiness, and prosperity in the New Year!

Kitchen Shoppe Class

Today was the second edition of our cooking class at the Kitchen Shoppe and Cooking School. Chef Amber Clay taught the class and included lots of wonderful cooking tips. In addition to enjoying some great food, we learned the right way to cut an onion and heard about some fun, new culinary tools - among other little tidbits.
All the recipes used for today's class are included in "Pheasant Field Favorites; Best Loved Bed & Breakfast Recipes". Remember that when you purchase a Gift Certificate for a stay at Pheasant Field Bed & Breakfast, as a bonus, you will receive a copy of our cookbook!

Winter Getaway in Carlisle PA

The temperatures are falling in the Carlisle PA area. It will feel more like the holiday season and there are fun reasons to visit this weekend!
The Central Pennsylvania Youth Ballet will present "The Nutcracker" this weekend and next weekend. This ballet is a favorite holiday tradition!

If you don't have time to bake those Christmas cookies, you can fine them at the "Christmas Cookie Walk" at St. John's Episcopal Church in downtown Carlisle. On Saturday and Sunday 12/9 & 10, you can purchase cookies all made by the local church members! All I can say is "YUMMY"!

We waited to start our decorating until after Thanksgiving. Now Pheasant Field B&B is "beginning to look a lot like Christmas"! Each guest room has its own little tree, a poinsettia, a music box, and a nativity scene. The common areas are "decked out" with greenery, ribbons, and other 'Christmasy' items. One more thing left to do - the Christmas TREE! Because we purchase a live tree, and leave it up until after New Years Day, we like to put up the tree later than lots of folks. We plan to do that next weekend. Watch for pictures of the BIG tree that Chuck will choose this year.

Remember that a getaway experience will make a wonderful Christmas Gift! Purchase a gift certificate online and receive a free cookbook to include in the special gift.

What's happening in Carlisle PA

It's December and time for holiday shopping. Remember that when you purchase a Pheasant Field Gift Certificate, you receive a copy of our cookbook, "Pheasant Field Favorites". A B&B experience may be just what that special someone is dreaming of - NOT sugarplums!.

If you need some other special gift ideas, think about some great PA wines from Hunters Valley Winery. The winery is having a special 25th anniversary celebration this weekend. Go to the winery, taste and buy some wonderful wines, and enjoy some holiday treats and music!

For a more visual gift, check out "Arts for the Holidays" at the Carlisle Arts Learning Center. You will find some unique gifts made by local artisans. Also in Carlisle, you can visit a Christmas Village at the Cumberland County Historical Society. There will be a special family program on Saturday.

In Harrisburg, at the PA Farm Show Complex, the PA Christmas & Gift Show runs through Sunday. This is the show that has all things Christmas - decorations, clothing, food, music, and crafts to name a few.

There are lots of reasons to visit Carlisle PA this weekend! Make a reservation and plan your stay with us at Pheasant Field B&B.
