BBIC Presents Jumbled Pillows for Late Summer 2003

JULY THROUGH OCTOBER ARE FRUIT FANTASY DAYS IN THE NORTH FORK VALLEY. Paonia fruit won blue ribbons at the 1893 Chicago World’s Fair, and in 2003 it’s still worthy of those ribbons. The harvest begins with cherries and apricots in July and extends through October when the pears and apples are in. So come enjoy the luscious fruit of our land. While you’re here, you’ll enjoy breakfast buffets with local fruit in salads, cobblers, or just plain. And while you’re exploring this gorgeous valley on foot, bike, or in auto, you can check out the orchards where you can purchase mouthwatering, juice-dripping fruit to take home. Come any time, but if you arrive Sunday, Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday and stay at least two nights, you’ll receive a 10% discount on your room and two jars of our homemade jam. Dates: July 5 – October 31, 2003. Cost: Sun. – Wed. discount. Otherwise, $80/night single occupancy, $100/night double occupancy.
