After the Storm

Our thoughts and prayers go out to everyone dealing with the aftermath of Super Storm Sandy. Here in the Cumberland Valley, we were spared the serious damage left in NYC and the NJ coast. 

It was heart warming for us to receive calls and emails from guests who were concerned about our safety and situation.  We heard from one of our favorite repeat guests who lives in Queens - she and her family were some of the fortunate NYC residents who never even lost power but her travel to work was certainly a challenge.

As you may remember from a post back in January, we added a wonderful generator to the property for situations such as "Sandy".  Fortunately, we did not have to use the new generator this time. We did have a certain sense of comfort for "just in case"...

We have some guests staying with us who have been without power since the storm. One family from NJ, decided to use this time to visit colleges with their high school junior son. Dickinson College was on their list so we enjoyed hosting them and providing some heat and comfort for them.
Another family from near Philadelphia fled their "powerless" home. The two sons had some fun helping me feed the horses this morning!  They had no idea how big a horse is. It was a delight for me to watch them during this new experience!

If you need a getaway, come to the Cumberland Valley. There are lots of things to do in the Carlisle area this weekend! 
Remember to plan ahead for Cabin Fever in January!  Stay one night, get the second consecutive night free!  A winter trip to Pheasant Field B&B is the sure cure for Cabin Fever!
