Art Lover’s Getaway

You and your spouse love the arts, and you’re always intrigued by the abundance of talent found in smaller communities throughout the Northeast. That’s why you’ve chosen The Inn, Farmhouse & Brewing Co. at Turkey Hill as your getaway destination to experience the burgeoning arts community of our region.

Your first evening begins with some incredible fine dining at The Inn, Farmhouse & Brewing Co. at Turkey Hill. Your meals were outstanding, the preparation and presentation was amazing.

After dinner, it’s off to a performance of the Bloomsburg Theatre Ensemble, a nationally known ensemble that has been performing for more than 35 seasons at its own Alvina Krause Theater in Bloomsburg. The play was wonderful as you head back to the Inn for a night cap and to settle into your room.

An “Amusing” Family Getaway

Wow, this is going to be good. The entire family really needed a chance to do something fun together; an opportunity to get away and have a great time without taking a week to do so.

You arrive at The Inn, Farmhouse & Brewing Co. at Turkey Hill on a beautiful morning to confirm all of your arrangements. As you expected, everything is all set. Today is the day that you’ve decided to take the family to Knoebels Amusement Resort. It’s only a short 25-minute drive from the Inn. When you arrive, everyone is amazed at how much is going on. The hardest thing to do is choosing what to do first. What an exciting afternoon it was, spent riding the awesome roller coasters and countless other rides, all the super fun games and attractions, and especially trying all the delicious treats. Everyone was so happy and the day just flew by.

Back at the Inn, everyone is excited about the room. “Check out the couch and the flat-screen. It’s just like home,” says one of the kids. Then, you all enjoy some refreshments brought over to the room, as you relax and get ready for dinner. You leave your room and walk over to the Turkey Hill Brewing Company. What a cool place, you can see the entire brewing operation as you wait to be seated, and the menu’s got something for everyone… even a kid’s menu.

While enjoying dinner, another guest lets you know of a local carnival that is in full swing for the rest of the week, just a short distance from here. In fact, during the summer months there always seems to be a carnival happening in this area. Looks like the agenda for tomorrow has been set.

Fun with Trails

You’ve just gotten settled into your suite at The Inn, Farmhouse & Brewing Co. at Turkey Hill and now you’re ready to do something. You’re the kind of folks to whom relaxation means being active; and for you that might entail a brisk walk, a little running, or maybe even some mountain biking.

You have a lot of options within a 15-mile radius, but you choose to head down to Danville to the Hess Field Recreation Area. You like to be prepared for anything, so no matter where you go, you always have your bikes on the rack “just in case.” You check out the place and decide to go for a run on the Robbins Trail, which is actually the oldest “rail-to-trail” in the country.

As you’re taking your run, you notice a bunch of wooden structures placed about. Some look like little bridges, others look like… could it be… jumps? You excitedly say to your spouse “no way, they have a mountain bike park!” Good thing you came prepared.

The day was so much fun and now you’re both ready to celebrate it by sampling some of the delicious brews which are all hand-crafted right here at the Turkey Hill Brewing Company. And what to eat? There are so many great choices, but tonight you’ll both choose an incredible “home-grown” burger.

The room is feeling really comfortable, and there’s a great movie playing, so you decide that a night cap is in order. Within minutes a wonderful wine and cheese service arrives at your door and you’re good to go. You talk about tomorrow and your plans of hiking and fine dining.

The “Outdoors” Family

Your family loves to hike. What a great way to spend time together and enjoy the great outdoors. You heard that The Inn, Farmhouse & Brewing Co. at Turkey Hill was a wonderful place for a family getaway, but can you tie the two together? Absolutely!

Imagine enjoying a great evening meal then waking from a very comfortable night’s rest, to gather your things and head out just a short distance from the Inn to one of numerous premier hiking destinations. You arrive at Ricketts Glen State Park, just 30 miles north of Bloomsburg and begin to experience some of the best hiking anywhere.

Everyone is in awe of the many waterfalls you see along the way, along with the old-growth forest, and the wide range of wildlife that seem to be showing everywhere. “Was that a wild turkey, those things are huge, you exclaim as one flutters across your path. Should you keep hiking or stop and take a swim? There is so much to see and do, you’ll most certainly have to come back.

Back at the Inn, your family is ready for a fine dining adventure with usual and unusual cuisine, all prepared to your liking by a top-notch chef. And your dessert… unbelievable. You’ve outlasted the kids today, they’re almost asleep as they watch a movie on the widescreen. Looks like there’s nothing left to do but walk over to the Turkey Hill Brewing Company, which is just a few steps away, and finish the evening by sampling a few of their finest brews.

Once again, your whole gang wakes up refreshed and ready to hike yet another beautiful, nearby destination.

A Very Fresh Getaway

You really love the pursuit of homegrown foods and fresh, local produce. You also enjoy patronizing locally owned businesses. In fact, that’s what first attracted you to The Inn, Farmhouse & Brewing Co. at Turkey Hill.

Upon your afternoon arrival, you and your spouse settle into your room and take a relaxing stroll around the property. After checking out the lay of the land, you decide to venture out in search of some homegrown treasures. Eating healthy and finding fresh foods has been your passion the past few years, and it’s always so much fun to find new places, wherever you go. Your first stop is just down the road to the Columbia Montour Visitors Bureau office to gather as much information as you can. You’re amazed to find just how many produce and farmers’ markets there are within a short drive.

You head across the river to Rohrbachs Farm Market. What a great place to pick up an entire cooler full of your local favorites. Hours could be spent just looking around, but the both of you decide it’s time to head back to the Inn for dinner.

Fine dining is on the agenda tonight, and you’re delighted to find that both The Farmhouse at Turkey Hill, our fine dining restaurant, and the Turkey Hill Brewing Company incorporate as much locally grown food into their menus as possible. A wonderful dinner, with satisfying local ingredients make you both happy.
