The season has taken off with a bang. At The Pearl, we were ready with new recipes, new flat screen TV’s in the guest rooms, and in 3 of the room’s new bottom-up blinds. We also have a mobile site that makes it easier for our guests to make on-line reservations.
As we look over our list of guests coming this season, we see the names of many returning guests. We are so humbled to see that as of today, 44% of our reservations are from returning guests. Those stats will probably change over the season since returning guests tend to make reservations early. It is fairly common that people from different areas meet, enjoy each other, and together book another date. Also, couples come each year on the date of an anniversary or birthday.
Nearby, Seneca Lake has a new winery and brewery – Starkey’s LookOut, about 2 miles south of us. In addition to beer and wine tasting, they have a food court that offers appetizers and hors d’oeuvres. And on Friday nights, they have a band while you enjoy the beer and wine. You can check out their website at www.starkeyslookout.com.
