Fall 2014 Seasonal Attractions
Greetings from the new owners of Sherwood Forest. It has been a whirlwind of excitement, taking the reigns of this thriving business. Your new hosts are David, Jim, and Noelene and if we haven’t met you yet, we look forward to the opportunity to greet you in person and welcome you into our home. Thanks to Keith and Sue for making this such an easy transition. We wish them all the best in their next chapter of their lives. Happy travels!
It has been such a great, busy summer. We have had the pleasure of meeting many of the long time repeat guest and making new friends.
A busy winter is planned with fresh new touches throughout the house. Look out for early January specials and some fun things yet to come.
With backgrounds in visual display at Marshall Fields and producing huge corporate and social events, we are going to transform the house for the up coming holidays. Halloween is sure to bring haunted happenings to Sherwood Forest as we add our own autumnal touches. But look out for Christmastime! We are going to deck the halls with holiday splendor, as this house has never seen before. Make sure that you make your reservations soon to be a part of these festivities!
