A Lovely Gift!

A beautiful original painting by Nancy Burleson now brightens a formerly dark corner near our "Piano-Top Gift Shop." A gift from Barbara & Bob Higgs, long-time guests from Jackson TN, it depicts a still life with flowers and features a pretty maple leaf bottle (like the ones we sell) full of delicious Vermont Maple Syrup. Even more special, it was painted by Barbara's dear friend Nancy, a Jackson local artist. Barbara had given Nancy a bottle of syrup and Nancy responded as she can do best - with a painting!

What a thoughtful and touching gift, Barbara & Bob - and Nancy, too!
We will treasure it, and now there will always be a little of you here at Colonial Pines Inn.
Thank You So Much!

Happy New Year!

It was a beautiful White Christmas in Highlands, but today the New Year's rain is washing it all away. The locals say the woolly worms are predicting a snowy season, so keep in touch if you want to come see the mountains in white, go snow tubing or (if cold temperatures continue) ice skate on Harris Lake. Miss Rebecca's Cottage, near the lake, is open every day of the winter, and the Inn is open weekends.

If you look carefully in this photo, you can see our beautiful (frozen) Thanksgiving pumpkin covered with snow & circled by a wreath.

My New Year's resolution is to put the Inn on Facebook. Wish me luck keeping up with it all and please visit Colonial Pines Inn on Facebook to check on my progress.

A heartfelt thanks to all our guests for making it a great 2010.
We wish for you and your family all things peaceful and joyous in 2011!

Please join us January through April
for Second Night Half Price OR Third Night Free
and plan ahead to get the best choice of rooms for Summer & Fall
at Colonial Pines Inn.
