Eighteen years ago, it started with a beautiful house and a dream. In November of 1994, the property at 112 East Main Street in Trumansburg beckoned with all its beauty, history, and wonderful grounds. After some loving care and preparation, the Inn at Gothic Eves was opened on New Year’s Day, 1995. In the time since, so many of you have made this dream a success with your support, patronage, and belief in this one woman’s dream. It is for this reason that the inn’s 18th birthday is dedicated to you: the guests and believers. Please join me for this birthday Guest Appreciation Winter and celebration of this inn becoming ‘an adult’!
In honor of this milestone, the Year End Special (now known as the Birthday Special) is being extended through March! Stay 3 nights and pay for just 2, or stay 2 nights and pay for just 1.5. It is my way of saying thank you for your continued patronage, friendship, and support!
During your stay, you are welcome to enjoy the inn’s birthday present: two brand new Jacuzzi tubs! (Really, what 18-year-old wouldn’t LOVE even one for their birthday?) These new tubs, one at The Inn, and one at The Potter House, will be up and running throughout the winter, offering a bit of warm respite to the chilly weather. While there will eventually be a $25/hour fee for private use, however winter guests will be treated to the tubs as part of their stay.
Never been to Trumansburg or the Finger Lakes area? This small town lets you truly feel like you are escaping the hustle and bustle of life. Our proximity to some amazing wineries affords you the opportunity to taste the bounty of the region. And just because we are a small town doesn’t mean you will miss any of the dining and shopping opportunities of the larger communities, as our own Hazelnut Kitchen offers amazing gourmet dining, and our various art galleries and antique stores offer some fun shopping. For outdoor lovers, the gorgeous Taughannock Falls State Park us just outside of town to the east, and the Finger Lakes National Forest is just a little further in distance to our west. If you find yourself wanting some ‘large town’ action, Ithaca is just 10 miles to the south and offers concerts, more antiques and art, other shopping opportunities and all the fun that a College Town can provide with Cornell University as an anchor!
And certainly don’t let winter scare you away! You will be greeted each morning with a delicious hot breakfast and gimme! coffee. Spa Services are available throughout the year, area wineries are open for your tasting pleasure, the parks never close, and there are plenty of winter events to enjoy throughout the season! A fire will be burning in the hearth for your return. Oh, and did I mention the brand new hot tubs?
The Gothic Eves Birthday Party lasts until March 31, 2013, so plan your winter bed and breakfast getaway in Upstate New York soon! You will be welcomed as family to help celebrate this major inn milestone, and your stay will surely be one to remember.
