What guests have said, time and time again, is how wonderfully the Inn is set up to enjoy the common areas. Yes, there are those who want nothing more than to cozy up in their rooms, and not leave. That is the comfort and privacy we offer too. However, many times, couples, group of friends, “you alone” escaping for a much needed getaway, a person here on business, or an entire family reunion taking over the Inn, want to spread out and enjoy alone time, or each other’s company, comfortably, in places outside of just their guest rooms.
This is not a B&B where the common area seems to be more of a “holding” place to wait to eat breakfast. As nice at that B&B may be, there may be little warm, welcoming, or comfortable about the space. Or, common areas that are always shared by the Innkeepers, because it is their only living space too. I know when we traveled personally, we felt as if we might be intruding.
Not at the Apple Tree Lane B&B. The Parlor is a favorite reading spot for many, with its large leather couch and oversized chair, with views out a large, sunny, window. This is where people really seem to enjoy sitting with their coffee before breakfast, and plan out there day. This is also where the "wine & cheese" welcome is often held.
Large pocket doors lead to the Orchard Room and is another gathering place at the Inn. The doors can be open or closed for privacy. Lots of comfortable seating, ottoman to put your feet up, big screen HD TV, cozy wood burning stove, and the “Wall of History”, make this room popular. Play a game, read a book or newspaper in front of the fire, watch a game or movie on the big screen (ask the Innkeeper for a box of popcorn! ) -- it is your space. When we say, make yourselves at home, we mean it!
Off the Orchard Room is the door leading to the quaint covered porch. There is a glider, swing, table & chairs, and other seating to enjoy while looking out toward the white picketed fenced garden and into the apple orchard. Enjoy an iced tea and game of cards out here.
The Dining Room is where you will find tasty treats on the buffet, cold beverages in the guest refrigerator, tea kettle and Keurig hot beverage bar, available 24/7. And of course, the favorite option spot for breakfast in the morning.
And of course, the 7.5 acres and 400 ft. of Crystal River frontage, gives you plenty of space to explore. Yes, ask us to set up a “campfire” in the portable firepit. We will even supply the ‘smore fixins.
Come and enjoy all that the Inn offers! We look forward to your stay!
