The New Year. Everyone looks forward to resolutions and starting over. New promise, new expectations, new challenges. Putting the past behind and moving forward. We are lucky to have that chance. Don’t squander the time you have with your loved one. Make time to get away and reconnect. Romance shouldn’t be at the bottom of your to-do list.

Guys and gals, don’t let Valentine’s be the one time of year you show your love. Breakfast without the kids that she doesn’t have to cook and time away with you will do wonders, I’m sure you know. So why wait? We are open year-around, so it’s not too soon to reserve your special dates.

Spoil that special someone this year with a Romantic Getaway at Evening Shade Inn Bed and Breakfast.
