Merrill Creek Reservoir for Birding and More

Hey bird-lovers!  It's time to head out for a raptor count.  It's the perfect season to pack up and explore the wilderness.  Just minutes down the road from us here at The RoseMary Inn, Merrill Creek Reservoir is a must see for any birder or nature enthusiast.  Located in the midst of over 2,000 acres of fields and woodlands, "Scott's Mountain" is the perfect place to hawk-watch.  And with plenty of bird-blinds to view from,  you might even be able to catch a bald eagle!  An abundance of scenic hiking trails is also available.

New Birding Guide for Lehigh Valley and Vicinity

Hey all you birders! We at The RoseMary Inn are happy to announce the newest addition to our library, Birds of the Lehigh Valley and Vicinity. First published in 2002, this guidebook is a 192-page overview of birds that live in or have visited the region. Peter Saenger, its lead author and primary designer, serves as curator for Muhlenberg College's Acopian Center for Ornithology, a museum that features over 3,000 taxidermy specimens of birds from around the globe. Saenger is also the president of the Lehigh Valley Audubon Society so he definitely knows his birds. We are only minutes away from the Lehigh area so come check out a red-tailed hawk or a ruby-throated hummingbird, maybe even an Iceland gull if you're lucky and enjoy a pleasant night's stay away from home.

NJ Clydesdale Trail Rides

Hey everybody! How about putting a little twist on horseback riding this summer. Check out Willow Grove Farm & Stables in Long Valley, NJ. Only a half hour away from us at The RoseMary Inn, there you will find the largest, yet most docile breed of horses. At this farm, one can travail nature's canvas on a most majestic of beasts. Travel along the Columbia Trail by horseback or ride carriage-side through the tree farm across the way.

Afterwards, if you're hungry, head over to Andrea's for some exquisite Italian cuisine or for something more casual check out The Long Valley Brew Pub which features an assortment of their own craft beers. If antique picking is your niche, several shops are nearby.

Shawnee Playhouse

Hi folks! Summer is coming on quickly and what a good time to get out and enjoy some performing arts. Plenty of artistic awareness surrounds us here at The RoseMary Inn so why not come and visit and soak up some of that culture. Just across the Delaware river is located the Shawnee Playhouse, which is only about ten minutes away, maybe less. There you will find a quaint rural playhouse with the soul of a big city. Upcoming performances include "Forever Plaid", whose theme is based around some great music classics such as Chain Gang and Shangri-La...definitely worth a visit
