A busy day around our Doylestown Bed and Breakfast today. Our inn keeper, Lorna, was over at Delaware Valley College getting the word out about our renovations and new amenities. We had a meeting and finally ironed out an exceptional corporate rate for weekdays. We also had a real interesting meeting with out neighbor, the Doylestown Historical Society, about their upcoming events (check back for a post about that tonight). After our meeting, I took some pictures of the inn (will be posted soon) and scooted over to Cyborg1, a local store, to pick up a present and a couple other things. The employees were real helpful and friendly and like most Doylestown shopping, the store was inviting and very well organized.

Few towns are as beautiful as Doylestown. There is so much to do and so many great stores to go to. When you come to visit, or even if you’re a local looking for an in town get-a-way, stay Hargrave House. We are the destination for Doylestown lodging and Bucks County Lodging.
