The Shelburne Restaurant and Pub features an innovative menu that showcases local, fresh ingredients but I think Red's favorite unique draw is the Fandrich & Sons grand piano named Gloria. Yes this piano has a name and it earned it! Just take a listen to the beautiful song played just for our Red Chair and you will hear how special it is. Another thing the Red Chair loved about the Shelburne Restaurant and Pub is the Art Nouveau stained glass windows that dates back to the late 1800's. This glass was rescued by innkeepers David and Laurie from a church in Morcambe, England that was due to be razed. Red just loved the atmosphere that Gloria and the beautiful stained glass provides and of course how could we not mention the absolutely delicious food!?
Washington and the wonderful hosts of the Inn at Blackberry Creek welcomed Red's arrival with open arms this past July. Thanks to the Washington Bed and Breakfast Guild, BedandBreakfast.com, and of course all of the Washington hosts the Red Chair Travels can now cross off one more state making Washington the 24th state on Red's cross country journey. Exciting right?! We cannot wait to see what is in store over the next few months, can you?
After a day spent exploring around the town of Jackson, Oregon with the innkeepers of the TouVelle House Bed and Breakfast, Red ventured out onto some of the local trails and tried its hand at gold panning and exploring some old gold mines. Red learned that although the gold rush was brief back in the 1850's, folks ultimately decided to stay because of the fertile farmland and ideal locations for orchards. Although unlucky with finding gold, the Red Chair discovered plenty of amazing wineries!
