Holidays in the the Heart of the Finger Lakes at the Rogues' Harbor Inn

All decorated for the Holidays at the Rogues' Harbor Inn
We love, love, the the holidays. Fresh greens, twinkly white lights, mulled cider and wine, extra special hearty dark craft brews...we look forward to it all year. It's a bright star in an otherwise way to cold and grey for me winter. We host many holiday cocktail parties and dinners, and we thoroughly enjoy every single one. Guests all cozy by the fire, enjoying a big slice of prime rib or maybe a smoked pork tenderloin with cranberry chutney and a glass of wine or pint in hand. It's all smiles and good cheer and we're thankful for another happy and healthy year.
We decorate every fireplace mantle with old fashioned Santas and swags with velvet ribbons. We stuff every planter with fresh pine boughs and white lights. We decorate our tree with cinnamon sticks, birch stars and checked bows. We really channel our inner Martha and the inn looks like an antique post card.
We offer a couple special seasonal craft beers in celebration of the holidays. We have Bacchus Brewing's Spiced Brown Ale...and our very own (Rogues' Harbor Brewing Co.'s) Stout's Rye Stout. A twist to a traditional Irish-style stout, this brew spices up an old favorite by adding a blend of rye malts. It's dry, roasty and delicious! It's named for it's owner, Eileen Stout. I know...my name really is Stout. I own a brewing company, seems like provenance.
We're ready- festive dinner specials, lots of local wine and dark seasonal craft brews. The fires have been been lighted. The halls are decked with boughs of holly and we lift a glass in your honor and wish you,
 "In the New Year, may your right hand always be stretched out in friendship but never in want."
