The Barn Inn Bed and Breakfast concludes 6th Annual Christmas Cookie Tour of Inns

Two festive days of merriment was had by 1300 visitors who toured the Millersburg, Ohio Barn Inn Bed and Breakfast and 11 other hotels and unique bed and breakfasts in Holmes County. The gingerbread themed tour inspired attendees with decorating ideas, festively flavored beverages and snacks, along with a specialty Christmas cookie at each inn. 

While the Berlin Grande Hotel may have featured the largest gingerbread house on the tour, The Barn Inn featured the smallest gingerbread houses, perched on the edge of fine china cups. Loretta's drunken gingerbread man was found amongst wine bottles in a coal bucket, and displayed in The Barn Inn's Christmas tree were repurposed books. 

 The winner of the drawing held at The Barn Inn for a Christmas cookie basket was Anna Martin of Shreve, Ohio.

Proceeds from the event will go to local charities. This year, charities being supported will be LifeCare Hospice of Holmes County, The Love Center Food Pantry, and the University of Akron Culinary Department Scholarships.
