Dixon Beaumont Inn News

Okay, we’ve closed the books on 2011 and are up and running for 2012. Thanks to all who visited with us this past year as we know you had a choice for travel destinations and appreciate you choosing to spend some time with us. We hope you found your visit to be a memorable one and we look forward to your return.

Our 2012 rates, package and events information are now posted on our website, and we hope you will take a look and find something that strikes your fancy for the coming year. There are a few new events this year and the ever popular Kentucky Bourbon Trail and the Kentucky Wine Trail are fast becoming the #1 travel attraction for our area. We will be posting a few new “Bargain Specials” in the future so don’t forget to check in from time to time to our website or follow us on Facebook to take advantage of these great opportunities.

Our winter work is underway with kitchen maintenance, deep cleaning and paint/patch work taking place around the Inn. Helen has been busy scheduling re-carpeting, new upholstering and drapery replacements where needed. Dixon has been on the search and acquisition of new flat screen TV’s for many of our guestrooms as we continue to prioritize our upgrades and move forward as funds allow.

New for 2012 is the change from our Sunday Brunch Buffet to an order off the menu Brunch which has proven very popular for the first couple of Sundays. We decided to give it a trial run for a few months and then determine which course to chart. So, if you are able to partake, give us your feedback and let us know how you like it! You can check out the menu on our website.

You will also notice a new enthusiasm throughout our quaint historical community as many downtown projects are initiated and/or completed over the next few months. As “investors” with many, many other town leaders and promoters, we are so excited about this new movement to enrich, restore and rehab our downtown community. Through CAP, our Community Advancement Partnership, some 40 to 50 organizations and individuals have joined together to raise awareness and energy for structural investment in our downtown community. From our new Public Library and Judicial Center to a multi million dollar model block project centered around our local YMCA to the half a billion dollar expansion investment by our three largest local industries (Corning, Hitachi, Wassau Paper), these projects have created new jobs and sustained hundreds of others. In addition, in the planning are numerous streetscape improvements and beautifying art projects such as large downtown murals depicting our rich history. These are exciting times!

Don’t forget about our special Winter Rates, so make plans to come visit with us soon!
