Happy Anniversary to Pheasant Field Bed and Breakfast! We opened our doors on May 1st, 1994 so we have just completed our 19th year of providing hospitality to guests from around the world.
WOW - as we look back over our 19 years, we remember lots of smiles, lots of warmth, and much joy in this "job". I was thinking about this "job" of innkeeping... When someone works at other occupations, generally they go to work and come home - there is a definite change in the parts of your day and the role being played. As an innkeeper, we live our jobs; it's who we are! I hope you can tell how much Chuck and I enjoy meeting new folks, introducing people to our area, sharing our home, and hosting special four-legged guests too. We look forward to changes in the B&B industry and at Pheasant Field, where we will make efforts to improve the hospitality and service to YOU, our faithful guests/friends.
We have ten weddings taking place at Pheasant Field in 2013 - some have already occurred over the winter (small, intimate ceremonies in the house), other wedding couples will take advantage of our beautiful grounds, gardens, and the pond as the setting for these special events in life.
So far this year, we have also had the pleasure of hosting an 80th birthday brunch and folks celebrating their anniversary - complete with "Music for the Morning" played on my piano by a wonderfully talented friend of mine.
These special event times are wonderful and add more happy memories to the list at Pheasant Field - but we also really enjoy visiting with our "old friends" who have been staying with us through the years - some of them as long as 18 or 19 years! Thanks to ALL of you for making Pheasant Field a part of your travel life!
Spring is in full bloom at the B&B! That means our "helpers" are busy weeding, mulching, planting and mowing to make our property look great for all of our guests! Check out our Blog
posts to see pictures of the property in full bloom.
There are some fun events happening this spring and we still have some rooms
On Saturday May 11 at the Carlisle Theatre, be entertained by the Rat Pack , bringing back the Golden Age in Las Vegas.
On June 7 also at the Carlisle Theatre, come see A Tribute to John Denver. I know some of you remember that all-American troubadour!
The fishing is great in our limestone springs. Tom
can show you all around the area and he knows where those trout are hiding!
Hershey's Butterfly House will open on Friday May 24th. Visit the gardens and then stop by the Butterfly Fly House
and HI to our friend John!
Birdwatching is another fun thing to do at Pheasant Field B&B. The pond and marsh area provide a wonderful habitat for lots of varieties of birds including Baltimore Orioles, Eastern Blue Birds, Green Herons, ducks, Gold Finches, Blue Herons, and of course Canada Geese (and yes, there are babies now!).
We are continuing our property improvements, for our guest horses this time, as we complete the re-siding of our old barn. The project was started last year and the second half of the project will be finished by the end of March. No more painting - Yea!!
We will be adding new siding to Boxwood Cottage in just a few weeks. It will be the maintenance free composite wood-grain siding that we used on the new section of the house. It will look great when it's finished. We will keep you posted on our blog.
Another Anniversary - Chuck & Dee said "I do" on May 2nd - 32 years ago! How does the time go by so fast?!
