As we approach our 1-year mark in business, our hearts are filled with gratitude from the outpouring of support from our guests and the small business community. Some of our very first guests were our neighbors' extended families. Locals were delighted to find out the old Sugarbush B&B was re-opened, making a convenient accommodation for their overflow of relatives and out of town visitors. We were here for many neighbors celebrating reunions and supporting them in sad times too. We exchanged stories and connected with strangers that we now call friends.
Chance brought us more guests that happened to find us on a Google search. More guests discovered us when their plans to attend local attractions put them in close proximity to our convenient location. We've hosted folks from out of state for the famous Boilermaker Marathon, the unique Herkimer Diamond Mine, Woodsman Days, Barnfest, and the abundant music scene. All were happy to share their knowledge of the area and their recommendations for things to do.
We would like to thank the Trenton Chamber of Commerce, Oneida County Tourism, our local town officials, and the Mohawk Valley Business Women's Network for your outstanding support. This close-knit community welcomed and encouraged us and opened many doors for us. We've made numerous connections through our affiliation with your organizations and hope to ride the wave into our next season.
We are, however, at a standstill at this moment in time. All over the world, people are battling the effects of the COVID-19 Pandemic. Families devastated from the loss of loved ones, businesses going under from shut-down orders, and fear & worry knocking on our doors. It's difficult to predict what the next season will bring. We pray that the next few months will not break us. We pray that our community, our country, our world, will get through these trying times and come out stronger than ever. May God deliver us another chance and may we all be gracious enough to show our love, support and gratitude to each other, now and forever. Amen!
When the world is safe to venture through once again, call us at the Golden Maple Tree Inn. There is so much to discover in Central New York. We promise to make your next family vacation, girls night, reunion, retreat or small business rejuvenation a complete success!
