The Race

The 24th annual Toyo Tires NHRA Nationals at Maple Grove Raceway took place on August 14-17 and the crew from
Leominster, MA joined us again this year. It might seem as though Tom Conry has made the Inns his home in PA since we have been enjoying his patronage for about 10 years. It is a pleasure having this fun loving lively group stay with us for their annual race weekend. The cottages offer some much needed rest and relaxation after a hot day at the races. This year they even took home some memorabilia for a homemade coffee table that will be going in the "sports room" in one of the race fan's downstairs lounge. It was great having Tom and the gang this year again and we look forward to another exciting weekend for the 25th Annual NHRA nationals.

If you are searching for that perfect restaurant
perhaps you should take the advice of the
McKenzie's. Cory and Wendy McKenzie stayed
with us and dined at Lily's on Main 3 nights in a
row. Wendy said she loves the atmosphere and the art deco while Cory added that they eat at
Lily's each time they stay with us. Cory said the
pork and scallops and bacon in a huckleberry
sauce was phenomenal, I know, I'm hungry just
writing it. In fact they dined at Lily's twice in one night. So if you desire some tasty delights, McKenzie's' suggest Lily's. I think I might eat there this weekend.

Now if you are in the mood for something a little more dangerous on your next vacation perhaps you should attempt an adventure like the one the Furhmans found. This couple witnessed Lancaster county in a way few people do. While staying with us at the Amethyst Inn they soared over the picturesque farm land in a hot air balloon. It may sound a bit terrifying but Amy said that Lucas, who was their pilot, was able to melt all of her apprehensiveness away and she said the balloon ride was "AWESOME!" In fact Lucas' wife grew up right across the street from the Inns, small town. Amy suggested riding the balloon at sunrise for the most beautiful view of PA dutch country. So don't tell me nothing exciting happens in little ol' Lancaster county. How about a hot air balloon ride.

We had the pleasure of entertaining two wonderful young ladies this past week at the Inns. We enjoyed meeting and becoming acquainted with Tess and Theresa Pelletier. Here Tess and Theresa are seated in our dining area where we serve breakfasts each morning. Tess loved the varieties at breakfast, I know this because she wrote the staff a sweet note stating that "the food was yummy."

The duo lodged in our Cobalt room where
Theresa said she enjoyed the lush queen bed and soft music while Tess liked the jacuzzi and our brand new porch swing on their balcony. She said she could have sat on the swing all day long. It was a treat for us to have them stay here at the Inns. We look forward to seeing them again.
