Whew! We are finally catching our breath after a rather hectic season opener. Normally we get off to a gradual start, but our spring bookings emulated the weather and came in torrents! Yay!

Hartzell House is grateful to have received the honor of a very generous grant from the Somerset County Tourism Agency grant program, and has broken ground on our extensive landscape project at last. In response to numerous guest requests, we hope to have the new gardens and outdoor common areas ready for small parties and receptions by next Spring!

Happy Mother’s Day to everyone who loves someone maternally!
