It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas!!

Wow, Christmas is less than two weeks away!  I can't believe it.  And so this is Christmas, and what have you done?  Another year over, a new one just begun!  That's probably one of my favorite Christmas songs.  Probably one of my favorite John Lennon songs.  God rest his soul.

Christmas tree at Brightwood Inn.Well, all the Christmas decorations are up at the Brightwood Inn once again, at this beautiful starved rock lodging destination.  It's a special time for all of us here at the Brightwood, decorating the tree, putting out all the decorations, stringing the lights..... and those bows!  Oh my god do we have bows!  If you are reading this Mary.... and you know who you are (I'll keep your last name safe for anonymity) the entire staff at the Brightwood would like to say thank you for alllll the bows you made and for showing Jo how to make them as well!  .....Thanks A Lot!!  Seriously though, we do have a good time putting everything up.  We turn on the Christmas music and the egg nog is flowing!  Nothing like it to get you in the Christmas spirit.

Fireplace at Christmas time in Brightwood Inn.But Christmas can be stressful too!  We understand!  There is a lot to do in a short time to do it.  A Christmas gift list as long as your arm, baking cookies, decorating the inside, decorating the outside, holiday baking and cooking, Christmas pageants and on and on and on. Plus you still have your everyday things to do as well!  It's enough to cause a breakdown!  So if you need a break form the Holiday grind, a place to relax and pamper yourself.  Even if it's just for one night, we have the place for you.  Our Country Inn was designed for that in mind, with our gas log fireplaces in every room, some rooms have large hot tubs to melt your cares away in, a full homemade breakfast the next morning and most importantly.... peace and quiet.  So come to the Brightwood Inn for some Peace on Earth and good will towards men.  Merry Christmas Everyone!!!
