Marydale Inn

I just returned from a fun girls getaway!    Three of my college girlfriends joined me for a weekend of sharing memories, shopping and farm living!!  We stayed at Marydale Inn, a fantastic Bed and Breakfast.

Rusty, one of the resident dogs, was there to greet us when we drove up!

I can not say enough good things about this B&B.  The whole house was immaculate, the rooms and private baths were spacious, the beds were comfortable, the food was yummy, and the surroundings were peaceful.  Mary Jo and Dale, the owners, were wonderful!   It was PERFECT and I want to go back!

Here are the girls at breakfast on the first day.  The peach smoothies were delicious!  Crunchy bacon and German puff pancakes with strawberry topping followed.

All the furniture in my bedroom was Amish made.  

Some more of the bedrooms:

The B&B is on a farm and they had newborn baby cows.  Dale took us out to the barn to meet all the animals.  I got to climb into the pen with 3 of the sweetest little calves.  So exciting for a girl who lives in the suburbs!!    And then we went down to the pond to toss food to the catfish.   

There is a naming competition going on for this little fellow.   Isn't he adorable?

The cows, Sweet Pea and  Eva.

The views were beautiful.  Green fields and trees as far as the eye can see.

We sat out on the deck at night and stargazed.  You will not believe how many stars you can see in the night sky when you get away from all the city lights.  So amazing. 

Here are all four of us gals together on our last morning at the Inn.  (Me- back row, in light blue.)

  1. Awesome! woo-hoo...I'll be back!
    How nice to have a four-legged greeter!!

  2. Weklcome back! I love to stay at B&B's and this one looked very nice. It had such big rooms! It's so nice that it's part of a working farm.

  3. I have always wanted to stay at a BB. I have told hubby that I want to go soon.
    So glad you girls are having fun!!! Take me next time.

  4. what a lovely place to spend time
    with dear friends. thank you for
    sharing your gorgeous photos.

  5. Looks like a great place--where is it exactly? Is it close to Jamesport? that's another great place to visit.


  6. What a great idea for a girls' weekend. I love the rooms - there's nothing like a farm B&B for relaxing and having time to chat a laugh away from the distractions of town.

  7. It truly looked like a wonderful getaway...

  8. What a great idea a weeks retreat with 3 friends at a B&B. It looks so quiet and fresh. Looking forward to more.

  12. I should be packing and cleaning but I just had to look at one more post before I get up off this chair. What a lovely B&B and I LOVE the cows. Yes it's wonderful to look up and see all the stars out in the country...I never get tired of it. I will be back near the end of the month and I will be back to see what you've been up to. Have a great day. Maura :)
