I am going ahead of myself here to share about our return trip home from Amanda's.. as I noted in the previous post, we got to add a day to our itinerary since we were not travelling so far on our first day.... from the coast... we adjusted our stay and Amanda found us a great B &B about halfway in Annville, PA...right outside of Hershey Pa... There are so many wonderful PA sites to see about halfway along our trek to visit the kids... and I had promised some friends we'd stop at Chocolate World
and bring home some chocolate treats .. although I had never been there in midsummer before and wasnt exactly expecting a MADHOUSE... I was afraid Id never see Lynn again once the myriad
crowds devoured me!
I'm talking thousands of revellers amid aisle after aisle of displays of every kind of chocolate delights!
Finally, I found the one special order from Lynn's cousin, Marnee...
And thankfully, Lynn soon thereafter, found me!!!
Yahoo! we could get back to our fabulous B&B enjoy the good life!
We stayed in the Patriot House , in a delightful small town outside of Harrisburg, PA. Loved it!
Situated on a corner on Main Street, it lies right on the edge of Amish country within a short drive of Lancaster and only minutes away from Hershey theme park.... the house was built in 1870 and retains it's Victorian charm, yet, the rooms are exquisite while providing all the modern comforts.
we stayed in the Constitution Room on the ground floor and had our own separate entrance to the back porch and garden area..... loved that... next I want to take my coffee there!!!
I love this vignette.... I so wished our virtuoso, Amanda was there to share a lilting tune on the violin!
The parlor was ready for anyone with reading or viewing on their mind...
A glimpse of the dining room in passing
and the morning breakfast room ... my favorite room!!!!!
Our table was set in a private corner by a side porch doorway... our view was so lovely whether toward the room,
or out the set of double doors to the porch!
Ah, and then there was breakfast.. french toast souffle'.... uh... yummm!
Our room was perfect.... the bed, royally outfitted.. the mattress was perfection.....
Just one step outside of our garden door to this magnificent pergola....
That path led to off street parking at the back of the property...
beautiful gardens throughout the yard
multiple seating areas under the pergola and around the huge yard... we just need to have more hours to enjoy the amenities...
We told Amber we would definitely be back.. it is so central to every attraction and almost exactly halfway to our kids!
