As if the yurt project wasn’t enough, we have more big news. We are proud to announce that Mike and Jan have purchased a new property!
That’s right! In addition to the yurts, Mike and Jan have purchased an old B&B in Grantsville, MD that we’re renovating into our own Little Crossings Inn and Cornucopia Café that we expect to open in Spring 2014!
The Inn, located right along the Casselman River, is the perfect spot for fly fishing and guests looking for small-town relaxation. It will offer an entirely different experience from our Lodge, with a modern and airy feel, hosting four rooms in the main building and two separate cottages, all featuring our Comphy linens, luxury accommodations and high standard of hospitality our guests know to expect when visiting us!
The Cornucopia Café will have a fresh, local food-centered menu featuring many of Jan’s favorite recipes. Serving breakfast, lunch and dinner daily, the café will feature breakfast sandwiches, lattes and cappuccinos, breakfast and lunch paninis, fresh pastas and a lighter dinner fare, as well as a bar serving beer, wine, homemade sodas and hand-dipped ice cream. To get a feel for the place, Mike says, “Think Starbucks and Panera with a bar.”
With a fresh, unique menu, we truly believe that it will become the go-to spot for casual dining in Garrett County!
Located just behind Penn Alps and Spruce Forest Artisan Village (and just 12 miles from the Lodge!), the Inn and Café are part of the rich history of the area. The name Little Crossings refers to the spot right here on the Casselman, then Little Youghiogheny, where George Washington once crossed the river. And Cornucopia is what the tract of land was known as before Daniel Grant settled the area and gave Grantsville its current name.
The final piece of the puzzle will be Grant’s Mercantile. Grant’s Mercantile will be our three-story, life style shop in our old barn on property. The Mercantile will be Western Maryland’s version of William’s Sonoma, Napa Style and Pottery Barn combined with a fly fishing shop and seasonal decor thrown in!
We will keep you current the project progresses. Stay tuned here and on Facebook for more info!
