Spring is in the air at The White Oak Inn

 After a snowy February, March has been lovely here in Knox County.   Our brave little snowdrops were the first to poke their heads above ground, followed quickly by purple and white crocuses.   The first daffodils have just opened up, and we should have quite a show right in time for Easter.

Wedding fever struck early this year.    We had three elopements and one vow renewal at the inn  in March, and for each one the day was bright, sunny and warm, so the couples were able to use the gazebo for their ceremonies.

Our rhubarb is already a few inches high, our chives are greening up and tiny little lemon balm and mint leaves are bravely poking up in the herb garden.  We can’t wait to start planting the rest of the more tender culinary herbs.   I’m dreaming of salads with fresh basil….mmmm.

White Oak Inn has a New Web Site Coming

I know I haven’t posted in a while. I feel like I just hibernated for the last couple of months. But don’t worry, I’ve been a busy little bee while I’ve been in hiding. I’ve been experimenting with some new breakfast and dinner recipes. Would it be boasting to say the fresh tomato pie and chocolate raspberry truffle cheesecake are to die for? We’ve also been working on a new updated inn website that we hope to roll out in about 2 months time. We had some great new photographs taken by our friend Ken Love, of Ken Love Photography and got a few nice pictures ourselves after the recent snow storms. Attached is a montage of some of Ken’s pictures taken in and around the inn. Hope you enjoy them.
