Lovin' Our Visit So Far

The B&B where we are staying for the next few days has lived up to the very good reviews which it received on Trip Advisor. It is called   The Great Tree Country Inn & Stables.

We arrived around 4:00 p.m., nearly dusk. There are a couple of inches of snow on the ground up here.  The driveway and grounds were lighted.  The farmhouse, horse stables, snow, and  twinkling lights were very picturesque.

Samantha was waiting at the front door to greet us. She gave us a tour of the house. There are two lovely sitting rooms with overstuffed sofas, chairs and a fireplace in each.  I can't wait for breakfast tomorrow which will be served on the enclosed porch.

We are staying the in Ivy room.  There is a big four poster bed, a gas stove, and two cozy wing back chairs in front of each window.

We took a few minutes to get settled and then headed over to Joan and Ryan's.  They live about 9 miles from the B&B.   Joan is recuperating from major heart surgery.  We stayed just a little while because we did not want to tire her.

We said our good-byes and had dinner at one of the restaurants that Joan & Ryan recommended.

When we got back to the inn, and into our room, we were pleased to find our bed was turned down and the blinds were drawn.

Tomorrow, after a little visit with Joan, I think I just might have to drag Ross around to a few of the local yarn stores that I have already scoped out in the area.

Bemus Point is a lakeside community on Chautauqua Lake.  I plan on taking plenty of photos during our stay.

After a nine hour car trip, and somewhat of an emotional re-union with Joan and Ryan, I think we are ready  to call it a night.
