Happy Birthday Mr Gorey! We’re sure most of you know that we are very priviliged to have the Edward Gorey House just a 5 minute walk from the inn, and today EVERYONE gets to see his imaginative works as the “Google Doodle” of the day!
The museum, which was his home until his death in 2000, is one of the most fascinating places we’ve ever visited………you walk in here and now, but you are transported into the magical, dark and surreal world of this genius, and when you step outside it is a bit of a shock to be back in the real world! But it’s really worth it, and the icing on the cake is the small gift shop where you can buy unique items for yourself or someone special.
The museum re-opens for the season on April 18th, with a new exhibit to celebrate the 50th anniversary of “The Vinegar Works”, so why not plan a stay at the inn and tie in a great morning or afternoon at the Edward Gorey House. Quote this blog and we’ll pay for your entry!
