Ringing in 2014

Posted on January 6, 2014 by Bedfordlandings

With a Full House on New Year’s Eve, we entered the New Year with much love and laughter!  It was amazing and we so enjoyed the time.  One of the couples flew in so we were able to test our inn keeping and tie down strategies all at once! Everyone got along; some worked jigsaw puzzles, some watched a football game in the theatre room, some went to dinner, and others shared munchies and wine by the fire.  We could not have asked for a more cordial group than we had for New Year’s 2013! Jack even got his bagpipe out to blast in the New Year! On New Year’s Day after the guests departed, friends who helped us build the hangar flew in.  Vicki and Jon came to check out Bedford Landings so they might share back with their neighbors in their fly-in community near Chapel Hill, NC.  So, we cleaned and flipped the rooms in a few hours to put on our best face! So what can guests expect at Bedford Landings? Tested recipes.  We are testing recipes for taste and presentation.  We try to test them prior to you coming but sometimes you get to help judge! Just look at this jelly belly roll that I made today!  I couldn’t resist the sequence!  Each time we are expecting guests, I put out a sideboard of some homemade snack bread, cookies of treats.

Of these amenities, what would be your favorite? The fireplace?  The hot tub, tasting recipes or watching movies in the theatre room?
