The Inn has the perfect solution – plan a visit to  Ponduce Farms Market on your way to the Forest for all your picnic needs.  This family-owned farm market is a short, scenic 30 minute drive from the inn, and features its own seasonal produce, plus a deli offering luncheon meats, homemade salads from Penne Pasta to Pepper Cabbage, breads, pickles, baked goods (Whoopie Pies or Ranger Cookies for a picnic dessert?), and more.

While you’re making all these decisions, you’ll be tempted to choose things to bring home, too. Imagine returning from your summer R&R in Bloomsburg with sun-ripened tomatoes and peppers from a garden you didn’t have to weed, or Chow Chow and Chili Sauce that didn’t keep you over a hot stove for a single minute. Who needs to turn on your oven if you can bring home a fresh berry pie or cinnamon rolls from your weekend escape? You can extend your R&R at home!

So plan a stop at Ponduce Farms Market when you book your stay at the Inn, and bring home some of the delicious bounty of summer. Visits to the farm market aren’t just for summer, though – there are pumpkins and a harvest festival in the fall. During the holiday season, their tree farm and Christmas Shop are open. Imagine a December’s stay at the Inn when you can take a hayride (Saturdays and Sundays only), choose from a variety of wreaths and garlands, and wander through acres of Douglas Firs to choose your perfect tree. Then cut it yourself or have it cut for you while you warm yourselves in the barn with hot chocolate and cookies. It’s a holiday tradition in the making when you stay at the Inn!
