Planning Ahead for Thanksgiving

June 10th, 2011 by theAddison

Thanksgiving is coming!  I know, I know, we’re just getting geared up for beach weather and the Dog Days of Summer (check out our free night offer during the summer) but the Holiday season is coming.  It is coming and we’re getting ready for it.  We’ve got a great Thanksgiving planned for this year and nothing says Thanksgiving like food, food and more food. 

For Wednesday’s Happy Hour after you check in we’ll have some seasonal snacks out on the veranda so that you can reacquaint yourselves with our other guests from last year.  Thanksgiving morning we will serve a full breakfast to get you ready for your mid-morning boat cruise of Amelia River and Cumberland Sound.  Being on the water always makes me hungry so we’ll follow the cruise with a light lunch buffet at the Addison.  The afternoon is all yours to relax, digest, nap in front of the TV, play cards or take a self-guided wander through our historic district.
The big meal comes in the evening.  Last year we served on the veranda and in the dining room and we’ll do it again this year, weather permitting.  Salad followed by turkey, turkey, more turkey, potatoes, sides and veggies with everything topped off by pumpkin or apples pies fresh right out of our oven.
I posted our Thanksgiving Package on our web site last week and already we have had a couple of couples from last year reserve their rooms at the Addison.  Having a home-style Thanksgiving dinner, prepared and served by your innkeepers, is a nice alternative to an expensive buffet at one of the resorts.  It is especially nice when we get the same guests returning year after year for the Holiday.  Remember…  Let our home be your home for the Holidays!
