Fun Fall Visitors

Only time everyone was silent

Wonderful visit from long-time visitors over the years.    Exchanged “gag gifts”, sang, prayed, visited the countryside together, shared dinner at an Amish friend’s home, and just laughed and laughed all weekend.

We make breakfast, but we party at dinner with our guests. Had a cool, delicious, relaxing dinner at the Greenside Golf Club Grill with guests who decided to stay several days longer at the Inn than planned. It was like a Stay-cation for us…lots of good conversation and fun. Thank you Angela, John, Steve, Dawn, Dave, Lynn, Karen and Tauyna for a great week.

Casual, well prepared, delicious food from burgers to pasta, to fish.

Visit from a long time friend

Ruth Miller Touchup

Long time Inn sitter, Ruth Miller, now 88 stopped by for a visit last week.  Now living independently in Robesonia, Ruth took care of the Inn while Stuart and Jim vacationed for weeks at a time.  Being a self-taught piano player, she would entertain guests hosting sing-alongs in the parlor.  Now when she visits us, she plays and recalls numerous stories about the guests and visitors to the Inn.  She has kept a diary and photo album that we have copied and treasure.    

Wedding Vow Renewal an Extraordinary Experience for all

Posted on: July 18, 2015 at 11:45 pm, in

The Churchtown Inn’s  Victorian Parlors set the scene for a romantic Wedding Vow Renewal the last weekend of June. Reverend Ken Boyle imparted inspiring words to the participating couples, reminding us of the significance of our past commitment and our new promise to each other.  One couple wrote, “It was wonderful to renew our wedding vows at the Churchtown Inn, our home away from home.”   We loved everything; the pastor has such warmth and wisdom; the time after the ceremony in the parlor was made special by the appetizers and Champagne provided. The Amish Wedding Feast Dinner at Naomi and David’s home was a treat”.
