Historic Holiday Home Tour, Alpaca Farm Store Open House in Springfield, KY
Christmas and Teddy Bears go together like holiday treats and hot cider – especially when served in a picture-postcard setting that includes a historic, antebellum mansion trimmed with a red, gold and crystal-themed 14-foot Christmas tree, guest room mantel tops adorned with garlands of fresh pine cones and bright boughs, and every window graced with delicate white lights, and appropriately enough, farm animals that are members of the camel family cavorting in the front pasture.
Maple Hill Manor Bed and Breakfast and Alpaca & Llama Farm has created just such a Christmas scene for the holidays. Located in Springfield on Kentucky’s Lincoln, Civil War, Bourbon and Wine trails, the inn is pulling out the holiday stops this year in celebration of its selection as “Best B&B for Service and Hospitality in Kentucky in 2012” and its approaching 25th Business Anniversary in 2013.
