It’s Spring and There is Never a Dull Moment at The Melrose Inn! March (my birth month) is here and Spring is assured at last.

If you get cabin fever, drop by the Inn and have a complimentary cup of coffee, tea, or even a glass of wine by the fire. Oh, and bring a book if you like – it’s a wonderful place to read.
