Could it be? Your Innkeeper has become The Grinch?

Has Carl Become the Grinch and Crossed the Holidays off his Calendar This Year? 

 The holidays are coming and you can't convince me that I'm gonna enjoy it. I mean really, I have not been thinking about Christmas for the past two weeks, three days and 6 and a half hours. Why would I? I can't stand decorating with my antique Christmas Collection that I've been collecting since May of 1989.

Then of course, with Christmas comes the wrapping and trappings of Holiday Gift giving, garnishing gifts with the prettiest of bows ( I picked up the sweetest ribbon at and end of season sale last January) and sending out Christmas Cards and organizing my Christmas List since September 17,  is just a plain nuisance. WHO HAS TIME!

I'm not shopping for cheese!
And then thumbing through Martha Stewart, Country Living, Victorian Home and other magazines is a daunting task, why would anyone look for hours on end for the perfect holiday meal. Come on, an artisan cheese board with Shrophshire  Blue, Fromage Di' Afinois, Local Cave Aged Goat Cheese, and Rooster Street Provisions old world salt cured Salami with Nicoise Olive Tempanade should be enough for an appetizer for the holiday party.

Decorating = No!
All in all, Christmas is just too much to deal with;  Oh and then the guest come to the Harvest Moon , I didn't all ready set up a special for them. Why would I, that would show that I have an adoration for the Holiday, which I don't.

 That special wouldn't be free passes to the National Christmas Center by booking here at the Harvest Moon from now till December 31. I don't want to condone such a menagerie of holiday splendor and make people excited and bring to them the Christmas Spirit when I myself am a Grumpy Young Innkeeper  It just wouldn't be right.

Rooster St. ProvisionsSo just try me, try making a reservation and see what happens, I'll make your holidays one to remember!


For those that know me, these things in here that I "shout out about"are really the case, I truly love Christmas and all that comes around it. One step into the Harvest Moon during December, you will see why. So all the things you read up there that I say are just a bother, YUP, that's crazy me, I really have been thinking about Christmas for 2 weeks and now 4 days and 7 hours. So come along and join us as we "gift" you tickets to the National Christmas Center just for staying here. Come and "Shine On" and celebrate the Holidays here at the Harvest Moon!

Did somebody say Goat Milk?
 It's Happening...

Well, It's been a while. I have been evaluating the culinary aspect of our operations over the past  years and have seen that the people that live here in Lancaster County have become quite the Epicureans. Bonus! People that travel here have come to expect the discovery of great food and where the heck it all comes from.

Lancaster has done it. A concept about ten years ago on how to get the word out on how perfect Lancaster is on a culinary note is now grown into a desire for more
Fresh Lancaster County Produce
. So in saying that and back to the Harvest Moon Bed & Breakfast, we have shown with great pride all that Lancaster has to offer. It has caught on, from great cheese producers and restaurants that serve a wonderful meal to local wineries that enjoy competing with their counterparts across the country. It's here.

Ready to make cheese
So now what do we do you ask? How can we take you deeper into what Lancaster County has to offer. How can it get any better than great food. Well it can and that's where I leave you today... IT'S a surprise. We are building on things, culinary things, and ways to connect a healthy lifestyle along with it. Lancaster County has gone all out and has really pushed some culinary buttons. I've explored them and continue to explore the scene here in Lancaster.  But mums the word for now. STAY TUNED!
