From New England to the Rockies there are Inns that are offering guests a culinary experience to celebrate one of America’s most cherished holidays. As I searched to find Thanksgiving at America’s Inns that offers guests a way to celebrate, I came across some wonderful specials with an experience that matches the uniqueness of their locale.
One celebratory special that really got my attention was a Thanksgiving Amish-Style in Pennsylvania Dutch Country. The Churchtown Inn in Chruchtown PA is offering a very reasonably priced package that includes dinner at the home of an old-order Amish family followed by a buggy ride and a meet and greet with their farm animals. Discovering how a traditional old world Amish society celebrates Thanksgiving would be a culinary and historical learning experience all in one.
Many of our Country Inns with Restaurants offer Thanksgiving dinners. The Squire Tarbox Inn & Restaurant in Westport Island Maine offers dinner in their cozy historical 1763 dining room. The father and daughter chef team create special farm to table meals throughout the year. Thanksgiving is a perfect time to celebrate at this very unique mid-coast Maine Inn.
A quick search found the Alta Crystal Resort on Mt. Rainier in Washington State. If you want a real early winter getaway for Thanksgiving this place looks like a lot of fun. Their Thanksgiving Eat & Stay Special has more than dinner. Hiking and snowshoeing, bonfires and hot tubs. They have reported snow as of November 22.
This is just a brief sampling of some wonderful ways to experience what our American country inns have to offer on Thanksgiving. No other hospitality industry offers authenticity better than our B&B’s and Country Inns. Agreed?
I am going to end with a recipe. One that goes way back to our New England and Native American influence. Touted as a Rhode Island creation, Indian Pudding is a very tasty ‘mass of cornmeal, milk and molasses, baked for hours, it is born of Puritan ‘nostalgia for British hasty pudding and their adaptation to the ground-cornmeal porridges of their Native American neighbors.” I found this recipe on a really great collection of Thanksgiving Recipes Across America from the New York times. If you haven’t completed your menu yet than these collections of recipes will inspire.
A warm and Happy Thanksgiving from The B&B Team to all our Inns across America and to all the aspiring innkeepers and retired innkeepers.
