Grafton Village Inn Mosaic

A couple of weekends ago, by pure chance, my husband and I found the Grafton Village Inn and what a treasure it is!

The Inn, which is just east of Cobourg, Ontario, originally opened in 1820 and was extensively renovated and restored in 1988.  The decor is beautiful with rich pumpkin walls, quilts, and lovely wooden tables and chairs.  The lunch was fantastic - see I was so thoughtful I even took a photo of it to get your mouth watering - yum - eggs benedict on smoked salmon, fruit and fried potatoes.

I made a mosaic with some of the other photos I took at the Inn.

After lunch we walked around the village of Grafton - I loved this little house with its ochre paint and its bright red back door.  We also stopped to admire the town administrative buildings that had a pretty cupola and the lovely community garden.

What an amazing place to stumble upon and a grand start to our weekend getaway.
