Lot 12~October 2016 Happenings
The air has turned crisp and the nights cool. October is glorious in Berkeley Springs. This weekend, October 8th & 9th, is a favorite of many as the Apple Butter Festival takes place in downtown. There is something for everyone, a turtle race, a beard contest, bluegrass music in the park, a parade complete with high school bands and floats and of course, the pig calling contest shouldn’t be missed. There are dozens of craft and food vendors tucked in every corner of the town. The complete schedule can be viewed so you can plan your weekend!
We know that after a full day of festival-going, you’ll need to relax and be pampered. Our bar is open at 4pm on Saturday and Sunday and dinner service begins at 5pm. Calling ahead for reservations is a must this Holiday Weekend for sure! Our new Autumn Dinner Menu launched last week to rave reviews with items such as: Coq au Vin, Pumpkin Risotto and Butternut Squash soup. Our menu changes to reflect the season and this menu embraces the fall harvest for sure.
One of the highlights of cooler weather is the return of our Wine Tasting Events. These intimate, affordable and enlightening evenings are typically held on the third Friday of month, October through March. This kickoff evening is no exception…mark your calendars for Friday, October 21st from 6 until 8pm. We enjoy seeing our guests make new friends during this casual evening which is located upstairs in our private dining room. Lovely wines, delicious snacks and friendly people-it’s a perfect combination.
Twice a year, many artists from Berkeley Springs open their studios to the public for a self-guided tour. October 22nd & 23rd marks the Berkeley Springs Studio Tour Weekend! You can drive through the countryside and visit artists while they display their expertise with printmaking, painting, hand-forged metal work, glass-making, pottery and more. The maps and brochures are available throughout the town (including Lot 12), pick one up and set off to enjoy the fall foliage and beautiful one-of-a-kind artwork. This is a great way to begin the Holiday shopping season too!
From spas to hiking, shopping to biking, there are so many ways to spend your days relaxing in and around Berkeley Springs. We look forward to seeing you during your next stay in our beautiful little town!
