Event Recaps

Family Visit

When the Italian side visits, they always bring food to share!! Monzo meatballs and my favorite San Georgio pasta made this memory one to savor! We visited several Italian pastry shops in Utica and walked off some calories in Old Forge. What a great visit with our family from Cleveland!! Thanks for making the trip and we look forward to seeing you guys again!! Stay tuned for future cooking classes right here at the Inn staring my cousin Marla, the Chef in Red!!

Renaissance Faire

This past weekend was full of characters as we opened our doors for the May Faire folks. This was our first opportunity to personally get to know stilts walkers, a fairy, a jester, a magician and a mermaid!! So nice to get to know these people as their hosts for the weekend. The rain did not scare spectators off as Tim Parker produced the 9th Annual Renaissance Fair in Holland Patent. This fabulous & free festival brought thousands of spectators and vendors from all over the United States. Another great weekend in Central New York!! Holland Patent is just minutes from the Inn and home to 16 Stone Brewery & Pub.

Frankie's Restaurant

We will definitely be recommending this amazing Italian restaurant to our future guests. Old Forge is about a 30 minute drive from the Inn and well worth the trip. Frankie is an amazing Chef and puts out unique house specials that you won't get anywhere else. And what a great location. Not only will you get the chance to enjoy the beautiful Adirondack Park, now you can savor the best gelato around. I had the pistachio and thought I died and went to heaven. Bravissimo!

Yoga Weekend

As we wrap up our promotional season and prepare for our Grand Opening, we'd like to recognize our special guests. Tammy Pokorny fearlessly led our mutual friends to gather last month for a Yoga weekend headed by the masterful yogi Ms Kirsten Beverley-Waters. The group enjoyed a variety of yoga sessions, wine sampling at Prospect Falls, a cooking event starring Chicken Riggies at Unity Hall, a tour of Utica, and a beautiful stroll through Barneveld cemetery and Old Poland Road. Chef Rob prepared amazing gluten free meals and designed menus that kept all of our friends safe from allergies and delightfully satisfied. We thank you for your feedback ladies and hope to host you again in the near future!!


This weekend was filled with food, family and friends. We packed so much fun into three days that these guests swear they'll be back next year!! Our guests were greeted on Thursday with a hearty goulash and a tour of the Inn. Friday lunch fish tacos fueled us for evening Skiing at the Woods Valley Resort. This facility is 20 minutes from the Inn, Rome NY. Saturday in Utica, we kicked off the Parade with the Mad Mile, dancing and hot toddies at Bella Reginas, and a fabulous house party in the center of town. Laura knows people!! The corn beef & cabbage dinner by Chef Rob was unbelievable. Sunday took us to the Adirondack Cheese Shop, the Foothills Mercantile, Trenton Falls Winery, Grassy Cow Farm, and 16 Stone Brew Pub. Fun was had by all & we look forward to hosting our St Patrick's Day guests again next year. There's so much to do in Central New York!! Come see us at the Inn!
