Just wanted to get you thinking about your stay and what you’d like to do while you are here!  Not only am I excited that you will be our guest but… my Mother-in-law and her best friend, Edna, are arriving from North Carolina for a week!   Eric’s Mom is a real southern peach…and that’s perfect timing for our very own peach festival! Yep that’s right, this weekend is the highly anticipated annual  peach festival with peach ice-cream , peach pie, peach cobbler, peach bread, peach on a stick, peach punch and  just plain old tree ripened peaches!   Just don’t ask Eric to join to share in the peach frivolity,,,,, you’ll get stuck listening to his lifelong lament about peach ice cream!


In addition to all the normal stuff, like the plays at the Shaw, the events at Fort George, walking tours, winery events, culinary events,  and just chillin’ at your vacation home, here are a couple of things going on in town that you might find worth checking out!

As always we have the farmer’s market Saturday mornings and Wednesday early evening,  by the Shoppers Drug Mart parking lot on Hwy 55, across from Jackson Trigg’s.   Food trucks, local farm produce, local bakeries and crafts …. So much fun, but best to bring cash!!


While you are here, you might want to know about some local events:
