Since mid-May we have been working double shifts to complete an outdoor patio project. The new patio comes off the side of the inn and has views to Pleasant Lake and the pond. We’ve ordered some beautiful outdoor furniture from Porch and Patio in Orange, CT where Linda’s brother works. To control costs Brian worked with our landscaper, Jim Orrok of Nature’s Design and Linda’s cousin Nick who arrived in late May for a summer culinary internship. Nick initially didn’t know he was going to learn landscaping during the days, but happily agreed to help out and was a huge asset to the project. A local mason, Josh Judkins created the amazing rock walls using rocks harvested from our home property. The result is a beautiful outdoor space that will be welcome our guests to relax and unwind. We hope you get a chance to come for dinner or stay overnight and enjoy the new space. Below are some photos of the project. There are many albums of the this project and our barn project on our Inn at Pleasant Lake Facebook page. You can “like us” there if you enjoy photos and day to day tidbits from the inn.
