Leisure, Shopping & Fun: Farms & Markets
For a truly rustic getaway, look no farther than this adorable Honesdale beet farm, which now houses an ultra-comfy bed and breakfast. Nestled away on 1,600 pristine acres, this Civil War Era landmark offers much coveted privacy along with an almost endless list of fun and exciting farm activities.
Stay at Schrute Farms
Schrute Farms offers three unique, agriculturally inspired guestrooms – America, Irrigation and Nighttime. Each room features hand-stuffed, hand-woven mattresses, precious, historical Schrute family photographs and vivid, beet-dyed, hand stitched quilts.
Things to Do
With farm-specific amenities like an authentic under-porch restroom, a possum-taxidermy gallery and intricately carved beet-work sculptures that seem to jump out at you, it’s obvious no expense was spent to provide such an oddly remarkable experience.
The activities are customizable and endless. Choose to spend the morning distributing manure, planting beets or attending the free Beet Lecture Series hosted by Mr. Schrute himself. Fill your afternoons with highly informative classes like table making, beet wine making, proper hoeing or attend the free Beet Lecture Series session II.
Finally, as evening draws near and the goose walk commences, settle in for a hearty supper. Your taste buds will literally jump off your tongue as you dig into old beet farm classics like Borscht or beet-stuffed jack rabbit. Pair your entrees with a bottle of proprietary beet wine and be sure to save room for the peanut butter and chocolate, sweet beet sundae.
As the farm succumbs to darkness, nestle into your hand-stuffed bed, opt for the nighttime story and doze off as Mr. Schrute gently reads to you from Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows.
And come Monday, you’ll be rested and thankful to get back to The Office.
