A Time to Be Thankful

Somehow we got to November and it sure seems like we skipped the fall.  Last week asters were reblooming in my garden.  The fragrant vibernum was flowering from what I assumed was next spring’s buds.  Then there were suddenly a few days of brilliant color on the Japanese maple and today the leaves are completely gone.  The snow squall yesterday was a complete surprise.  Today the sun shone brightly on a crisp day and it is all good again.  The marvelous part of northeastern Pennsylvania are the seasons. I hate when one is too short, unless of course it is winter.  But at the end of fall we get to eat turkey.  Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday and Harrington House will once again be full of guests, family and friends.  Maybe we will pull out the bike for one last tour of the McDade Trail before we pull out the snow shoes.   But for sure we will eat well.  Happy Thanksgiving!

Fall Color in the Poconos

Fall is the busiest time of year for Harrington House for travelers seeking fall color and this October has been no exception even though its been quite warm until last week.  Between the Milford Readers and Writers Festival in September and the Black Bear Film Festival this past weekend we have been hopping.   It’s been kind of a strange season but fall seems to have finally arrived with beautiful sunny days and crisp temperatures which makes hiking and biking along the McDade Trail really  invigorating.  Spencer is having a great time in the woods even with hunting season upon us.  Loud noises are certainly not his thing.  To see the real fall color today, one has to get out of the Delaware River Valley to a little higher elevation.  But it has started for sure so don’t miss it.

Giving Back to the Community

For the last 10 years, I have been fortunate to be involved with a wonderful event in Milford, originally organized by my friends Kelly Wilson of Hare Hollow and Amy Eisenberg of the Milford Craft Show under tents in the garden of the Laurel Villa Inn. I have continued to be part of the dedicated group of volunteers from the Milford Business Community that organize it every year under the non-profit organizational umbrella of Milford Presents. This is a dine-around event, with dinner provided by local restaurants and prizes by other local businesses. No one goes home empty handed.

In 2017, thanks to the generosity of the 150 people who bought tickets and came together to celebrate the 10th Annual SHARE THE HARVEST Dinner in support Milford’s Ecumenical Food Pantry, we were able to present a van full of pantry supplies including essential non-perishable food items, baby foods and formula, toiletry goods and pet foods,and exceeding our goal donation of $2500have made a total cash contribution of $4,500 to our neighbors in need.

This year’s event is scheduled for Monday, September 17th at Saint Patrick’s Church Hall in Milford. In the spirit of giving, we encourage anyone who was unable to participate to make a direct donation to the “Ecumenical Food Pantry” – donations may be dropped off at any time and checks may be mailed to the organization at 321 5th St,Milford PA 18337, and to keep this cause close to your heart throughout the year.

Quiet. Walkable. Beautiful. The Weekend Getaway You Need

With its proximity to both New York City and Philadelphia, Milford, Pennsylvania is the perfect weekend getaway for the stressed-out urban dweller.  Our lovely Victorian town is walkable, friendly, and packed with activities.

Arrive Thursday and head to the Waterwheel Cafe for a quick bite, followed by Blues Night where local and regional musicians gather for open-mic night, and jam away.  It’s not to be missed.
