Fall Weddings in Carlisle PA

We want to wish Katie & Mike "All The Best" in their new life together!  They were married here at Pheasant Field Bed & Breakfast on 10-11-12...That should make their anniversary date easy to remember!  It was a small, intimate wedding and reception on a cool October afternoon.  The tent was cozy with sides all around and some small heaters.  The love shared with family and friends helped to warm the day!

Our last wedding of this season will be held on Saturday.  Katy & Drew will say their "I do's" on the island with about 170 of their closest friends and family members looking on.  The weather forecast is for a beautiful fall day!  Best Wishes Katy & Drew!

The weatherman is predicting freezing temperatures for tonight! So today we cut lots of our summer flowers and brought them inside for everyone to enjoy.

If you are looking for a reason to visit the Cumberland Valley, we suggest a stop at The Village Artisans to celebrate American Craft Week - October 5-14.  The Artist in Action this weekend will be Clare Margaret doing her paper cuttings of farm animals and everyday items. See Clare on Saturday, from 1 to 4 PM.

 Historic Carlisle Barracks will be celebrating OktoberFest this weekend with music, German food, and of course a little beer!  This event takes place at the Army Heritage & Education Center which is a wonderful museum even without the additional festivities!

Make your plans to visit the Cumberland Valley during the fall, when the weather is great and the colors are wonderful! See YOU soon!

Final Car Show for 2012 in Carlisle PA

It's hard to believe that it's October!  This weekend will mark the end of car show season in Carlisle PA - a sure sign that autumn's nip will soon be in the air.    We welcome back our vendors - some of whom have been staying with us for 17 years!  It's great to have the whole crew back with us again.

Our equine snowbirds have started to reserve their rooms for the migration south to warmer climates. Last night we had two Shires (along with their human, canine and feline friends) stay on their way from NH to FL.  Tonight, an equestrian guest is traveling from VT to VA and then on to SC.  It's interesting that the equine guests seem to remember this layover spot as they step out of the trailers. You can almost see the sigh of "I'm here" from the horses as well as the drivers! 

As I write this note, we have 3 sisters and one daughter/niece staying with us for a girls' getaway.  They are a fun bunch! Tomorrow they will visit the Kitchen Shoppe and Bedford Street Antiques before trying one of Carlisle's great restaurants. 

Autumn is a wonderful time to visit the Cumberland Valley. Come stay and hike, fish, see a show, enjoy wonderful restaurants, and maybe even just relax!  Find accommodations at Pheasant Field B&B and enjoy your fall getaway!
