Dear Honey Run Friends,
On November 1, 1512, Michelangelo Buonarroti shared his creation with the world in the Sistine Chapel. The sheer size and magnitude of the works of art he created over a four year period at immense physical and emotional cost is breathtaking and admirable. I do not have an artistic bone in my body and yet I have always been drawn with great appreciation for those who have been blessed with such talent. My closest friends are of the creative fields with a wide array of artistic genres completing their portfolios. The art itself has an immediate emotional pull as my eyes soak in the colors, shapes, and textures, but the back-story of the artist and their inspiration has always been the piece that completes the work of art for me. I find it fascinating that Michelangelo was a sculptor by trade and not the first choice for the commission of the Sistine Chapel. His counterpart and enemy Raphael declined the opportunity and even recommended Michelangelo knowing that he was a sculptor and not a painter. Raphael’s plan to embarrass Michelangelo backfired. Michelangelo was not a humble man by all accounts and was difficult to know, yet of all of his creations from sculpture, painting, poetry, and architecture, he only signed one of his masterpieces in 88 years; Pietà.
While we all do not have the same talent of Michelangelo we all possess great talent. We were all created with talents and our challenge while on this journey of life is to figure out how to implement our talents in our surroundings to benefit our peers. As each of us excels we as a common community succeed together. Our entire team is striving to use their talents to prepare an experience like no other for you at Honey Run. Our entire property is a work of art that has been created for you and is waiting for you to come and be emotionally moved by its colors, shapes, textures, and service. I hope to see you at Honey Run soon as you create your own personalized Honey run experience and masterpiece.

Jason, My husband and I have been coming to Honey Run almost yearly since 1988. We have loved it in every season and through all it’s growth and changes. Part of Marge’s talent was her vision, and part of yours is maintaining the excellent standards she insisted on with your own vision. Your talents and those of your most excellent staff do not go unnoticed. We will be at the Inn tomorrow. Maybe we will see you there. Mary
Please change my e-mail address as we miss getting the messages from The Inn. Now hoping to see you early next year for a brief get-away. Hope you have delicious holidays. Miss seeing all of you.

Thank you for sharing your talents, the talents of your team and this beautiful setting with us. My husband and I stayed in the Honeycome Suites over Thanksgiving and were so pleased with the setting and the accomodations. It is a very special place and does bring an amazing sense of peace. We have spread the word to all who have asked what we did over the holiday. It was a much needed break from the stresses of everyday life. Kindest regards, The McKinney’s.
Just a note to wish you, Jason, and all of the staff a very Merry Christmas and a good New Year.
I am hoping that we will be able to see you before our annual trek to The Inn for the musical seminar in the Spring. We eagerly look forward to the food, fellowship and relaxation that we always fund there.
Best regards. The Siegels.
