Mommy & Me Day 1 @ Grape Arbor B&B, North East, Pennsylvania.
After driving something like 10 hours (we got lost O_o) to redeem our Living Social Escapes deal for Grape Arbor B&B, my mom and I arrived in North East Pennsylvania to have a relaxing girls weekend. Our suite is pretty plush with elegant Americana decor with one bedroom that had a half bath and a smaller bedroom (cause mom snores like a bear) and a full bath down the hall. We had it all to ourselves :)
We started our next day with a FANTASTIC three course breakfast of apple crumb pie, fresh fruit, fresh harvest rolls, and a choice of eggs florentine or french toast with a side of bacon. Filled up and energized we took a walk through town and found some antique shops to satisfy our internal urge to shop. We found some vintage earrings and bracelets, kitchenware, and of course vintage luggage at Marks Coins & Collectibles on Main Street, Olde Times Sake and Ye Olde Vineyard on Lake Street! Tomorrow… mom is thinking about going back for some lamps.
Here’s a listing of some vendors local to the Erie/North East area of Pennsylvania: http://www.pavendors.com/antiques/eriecounty.htm
Next while I took a little afternoon siesta, mom got an hour massage back at the B&B. When she was done getting her rub down we had an afternoon wine, cheese & chocolate pairing at South Shore Wine Company. We tried 6 wines made from grapes and fruit made in one of the many rolling vineyards in the area. (Fun Fact: Welch’s Grapes come from here.)
Afterwards, just up the road we soaked up the wine with some comfort food from Freeport, a local family restaurant on Lake road. Behind it we enjoyed the majestic view of the sun filtering through the clouds at Freeport beach.
