An A-maze-ing Fall Tradition

Fall is a season that is full of traditions. Whether its enjoying apple cider and freshly made doughnuts or picking out the perfect pumpkin everyone has a special activity that reminds them of crisp days and changing leaves. You only have a few more weekends to enjoy the fall festivities at Mckee’s Cedar Creek Farm in Rougemont, located just a few miles down the road from the Arrowhead Inn.

Known for creating one of the largest corn mazes in North Carolina, McKee’s also has children’s activities, pumpkins for picking, and is the perfect spot to take a picnic lunch. This year their corn maze was carved from a 12 acre field and has 4 miles of paths to explore. And in case you were looking for something a little spooky, visit them on October 28th – 31st to brave the haunted corn maze

Honoring Our Nation's Veterans

Veterans Day is approaching and the Arrowhead Inn has created two specials to say thank you to those who have served and are currently serving our nation. We are participating in the B&B's for Vets program so if you have a vet that you would like to thank send us an email to reserve a complimentary night's stay on 11/10/11. Your special vet and their guest will enjoy a memorable night in one of the Inn's beautiful guest rooms and will wake up to one of Chef Phil's sumptuous breakfasts.

As another way to honor our veterans we are also offering a 10% discount for past and current servicemen and women through December 30th, 2011. To receive your discount please let your innkeepers know that you are a past or active serviceman or woman upon making your reservation.

Female Artists Featured at Duke’s Nasher Museum of Art

Through December the Nasher Museum of Art (http://www.nasher.duke.edu/), located on the campus of Duke University is hosting two exhibits featuring female artists. The Deconstructive Impulse: Women Artists Reconfigure The Signs Of Power, 1973-1991 contains the work of 21 female artists and is designed to help reveal how women were portrayed in commercial art. Reviewer Carrie Moyer concluded that this collection is:
“a highly entertaining and groundbreaking exhibition that should be required viewing for anyone interested in the evolution of contemporary art.” 
Through December 4th, several works by female artists in the Nasher Museum’s Collection  will be showcased as well. Many additional exhibitions will be featured at the Nasher along with their permanent collections.

The Splendid Table Visits Durham’s Exotic and Delicious Locopops

Even though it is starting to cool off in Durham it isn’t too late to get a taste of fun frozen flavors from around the world at Locopops. This one-of-a-kind treat is so unique that it was featured on The Splendid Table, where the story behind these tasty pops was told and listeners learned about the owner’s passion for paletas, or Mexican popsicles. Many Locopops flavors, such as mojito and mango chile, stay true to the paletas roots and taste as though they came straight from south of the border. But the popsicle mavens at Locopops actually don’t go very far to craft their exotic flavors, in fact they strive to find most of their ingredients right here in North Carolina. Looking locally leads to other exciting flavors such as cherry apricot, chocolate rosemary, and strawberries and cream.  Summer may be gone, but it’s always a good time to wake up your taste buds with something delicious from Locopops.
