My wife and I have been touring for fifty years. We have had great
trips, good trips and some really bad trips. We've stayed in castles, grand hotels, motels, B&Bs and even in tents. In other
words, "Been there, did that".
I won't bore you with our stories, but I must tell you about our
last and finest one. I wanted to take my wife to somewhere new and very special, to celebrate her birthday. Both my sons are well-traveled businessmen and they suggested, The Inn At Twin Linden, in the Amish country of Pennsyvania. They said it was delightful and if I wanted something extra special, this was the place. I took their advice and booked a room, never realizing how grand it would be.
The drive from our home in New Jersey, was about two hours.
We traveled through the fantastic patch-quilt rolling hills and valleys of the picturesque Amish farm lands. Suddenly, we were transported two hundred years back into the past. Our arrival at the inn was as though we were family coming home. Then, we began the most wonderful time we've had in fifty years. The beauty, charm and deliciously original cuisine was matched only by the warm welcome we received by the owners and innkeepers. Their tender care and genuine interest in making us comfortable in every way is really rare to find these days. Our room was luxurious, quiet and intimate. The many conversations we shared, while sipping a cup of tea or a fine
brandy, were pleasant indeed. From the porch we could watch the Amish farmers tending their stock and fields, as the barefoot
children laughed and played. We could hear the clipity-clopping sounds of the past, as the horse-drawn carriages passed the inn and rode over the hill into a beautiful sunset.
Finally, it was time to leave. Not to be forgotten, for we took with us cherished memories of this enchanted place called, The Inn At Twin Linden, that shall be pasted into our scrapbook of life. As we drove home, we were already planning our next trip back.
