Winter Festivities in and around the B&B

We may be rounding the corner into winter, but that only means new recreational opportunities to explore. Besides local Amish buggy and sleigh rides, there is the frozen toboggan run (rentals are only $10/hour) at Pokagon State Park where riders reach speeds in excess of 35 miles per hour. For those who prefer a slower pace, cross country skiing (and equipment rental) is available. Downhill skiing (w/ski and board rentals) at Swiss Valley is just down up the road.

Ice skating outdoors by the river in Elkhart is a throwback to simpler times (skate rentals available).

As an incentive to try some of these, book a room for any Sunday through Wednesday night (December through March), and receive your second night lodging free.

We also have gift certificates available now on our website...just click on our "check availability/make a reservation" button and then "gift certificates." Call us if you would like a gift certificate for an amount not listed, or if you would like to purchase a "room specific" gift.

Now that Thanksgiving is past, the Christmas decorations are coming out and we are gearing up for the holiest of holidays. Christmas is a special time around McKenzie House and this year all six girls will be blessing us(?) with their presence (presents?) at various times. You just might meet the namesake of your suite if you join us in December.
