Dear Honey Run Friends,
As I was reviewing some past letters it dawned on me; be careful what you ask for. In February 2016, I wrote how I missed the snow and cold of winter as we were experiencing a warmer than usual season with little snow. Well, that has not been the case this year. The cold has accompanied a steady flow of winter storms that replenish the snow on a regular basis across our beautiful property. Yet, this winter slumber has brought great times with those of you who have braved the elements and awarded yourself a winter break. We have enjoyed the quiet talks by the fire with you and hearing your overwhelming satisfaction with the quality of your meals at Tarragon created by Chef and his team.
Winter is winding down, and we are starting to look forward to spring. A few years ago, I heard the term Forest Bathing. I did some research on the subject, but I did not follow through with any formal plans. Well, the topic came up again in my studies, and it is fascinating the health benefits that doctors and scientists are discovering with this form of stress reducing therapy. We have always touted the serenity found at The Inn at Honey Run, and now there is concrete evidence that taking some time to visit here and stroll through the forest is good for your health. See the NPR article here.
If you haven’t made your spring reservations, please do so, and give yourself the gift of relaxation lower blood pressure. Come listen to the birds, and soak up the smells of the forest as you feel the stress melt away. We are looking forward to seeing you soon.
Your newbie forest-bathing Innkeeper,
