Dear Honey Run Friends,
We have always used the word serenity to describe your experience here at The Inn at Honey Run, but lately, the word has been used by more guests than I have ever heard it used. The power of what this word offers made me stop and reflect. The definition of serenity:
The state of being calm, peaceful, and untroubled.
Wow! Calm, peaceful, and untroubled in one experience; at one moment in time. Imagine how your body and soul would react. Would you know what to do? I recently saw a commercial with a couple camping and they had to turn on an app with the noise of the city to sleep. The serenity of the forest was too serene. What has happened to us? How have we allowed our world to be so bombarded with noise and busyness that we have deprived ourselves of the beauty and serenity our Creator made for us to balance the stresses of life? Not everyone can live in the country due to work and modern life needs, but we can all allow ourselves a couple days a year to retreat to the serenity of nature and just be – no busy schedule, no hum of the city, just you and the sounds of the birds in the distance with the cool air of the summer morning as the forest comes alive. While sipping your coffee to the sun rising above the pastoral hills, you have the opportunity to award yourself that special gift that leaves all the stresses of life back in the city. Your stillness and lack of need to run gives you calm, and finally you realize it; serenity.
Come and find your serenity.
Your Innkeeper and Serenity Host,

Serenity, peace and calm are almost extinct. I hope to visit the Inn at Honey Run in the near future as I could use a big dose of peace and quiet.
As co-founder of Huntington CALM, a citizen’s advisory and advocacy group, that educates about the health, environmental, and quality of life issues posed by the excessive, unnecessary use of highly polluting, incredibly loud, two stoke engine gas leaf blowers we are always looking to promote places that are serene and environmentally friendly.
Many towns are banning or restricting their use due to deafening noise and toxic emissions. We hope the Inn at Honey Run does not allow their use on your property as that would shatter the serenity.
You can use this as a marketing tool to attract guests. Sonoma, CA recently banned gas leaf blowers year round and was considering promoting the fact to increase tourism.
