April is almost over! May is just around the corner and will be here before you know it. There are a lot of activities going on in May and some incredible shows at the Harvester Performance Center. If you have not checked out their web site yet, what are you waiting for? Go to http://harvester-music.com/ to see the line up for all of their shows. Some definitely worth mentioning are May 5th, Vandaveer. This show is special for us because are hosting it here in our own living room or under the tent. Just show up and we will pass the hat to pay the band. If the weather is great, bring a blanket or a lawn chair and we will sit outside and listen to this great acoustic duo! Don’t miss this.
On the 6th at the Harvester is the Panini Brothers. This is a fundraiser. May 7th Motown Review, and the 17th is the Jayhawks. On the 19th the Seldom Scene will be playing. 20th is Samantha Fish and 21st is John Anderson. May 25th is the Zombies and May 27th is Susie Boguss. All of these are great shows and we are so lucky to be able to walk across the street to hear such world class acts. Why not book your room and stay with us and make it a weekend that you won’t forget!
We have an elevator in the house. We use it to access the second floor, send luggage up, or just to send the laundry up. This elevator was put in the house by the third owners to help family members access the second floor. Having an elevator has been beneficial for folks that might want to stay upstairs but can’t do the steps. So keep that it mind when you are booking your rooms or just coming for a tour.
Starting today, we are offering new rates for Sunday through Wednesday. $100 for The Harvester and the Conspiracy room, (only $150 for Thursday through Saturday).
The Wanderlust and Generals Rooms are $105 Sunday through Wednesday, ($165 Thursday through Saturday). The Magnolia room goes for $115 Sunday through Wednesday, ($185 Thursday through Saturday). All rooms include complimentary sodas, waters, flavored waters, coffee and teas as well as snacks, peanuts and ginger snaps all day long. There are also fresh baked muffins, cookies or cakes available as well. If there is anything else that you need or want, just ask!
Many folks have asked about a specific color of a room. I always try to have my paint cards nearby so that I can answer their questions, but every now and then I can’t find them right away and get distracted before I find the color. So I decided to list them here for future reference for all.
Although the high is only supposed to be 59 today, we have had some 70 degree days. I went for a run yesterday and the flowers were blooming all over town. Even here, we have daffodils coming up and blooming. I have also seen some bees swarming about. I can honestly say that my spirits have lifted and I have a renewed sense of energy.
Can you believe that January is over? Not that I mind, but it did kind of fly by . That just means that we are one month closer to warmer weather. Today is Groundhog Day and according to Phil, we have 6 more weeks of cold weather. Which is a month and a half before we begin to see signs of Spring. It will not be too soon for me. But while I am patiently awaiting the arrival of warm weather, I am also taking the time to spruce up the inside. All of the little details that need to be attended to. How about you? What do you do to pass the cold weeks of Winter? Why not take a little get away and come to Rocky Mount. Lots of exciting things are happening here. We have wonderful art that can be seen at the Grainery as well as the Artisan’s studio next door to that. Then you can walk over to see some of the cool, “retro” items at Old is Cool! Brian has some amazing things in his store. I just picked up a Leon Russell album for $2.00 to take with me to the concert next weekend at the Harvester to have signed after the show. How cool will that be! So take some time to come down to Rocky Mount to enjoy some art, old and new. And while you are at it, check us out. Better yet, come and stay for a night or two. You won’t regret it!
Here is the calendar for the Harvester for the month of January! Some great shows are coming!
January is quick upon us. With the holidays behind us, you will be ready for some relaxation and revival from the winter doldrums. Renew yourself with a night away to Rocky Mount and take in one of the great shows coming to the Harvester. Wether it is Glen Phillips from Toad the Wet Sprocket, David Bromberg, or Dickie Betts you are interested in seeing, the Harvester has booked them all.
What else can you say! Wow!!!! I am sitting here with my feet up and a hot cup of coffee watching the leaves fall. (Not really, I am working!) But I am watching the leaves fall from my window as I work. What a gorgeous day here at the Inn! The sky is blue and the weather is warm and the leaves are still full of color.
