Crossings Vineyard: Newtown, PA

We stopped at Crossings Vineyard after visiting a War Dog Memorial with Lager to celebrate Veterans Day.

The vineyard was situated on beautiful grounds, and had a really neat tasting room!

Even with the hotel being under construction in some areas, the hotel was clean, and the staff was friendly!

Margarita got to stay in a hotel for the first time (the Comfort Inn, University Center) when we made a spontaneous decision to be “Sunday Spoilers” at the Celebrate Fairfax Festival dock diving competition!

Dock-Dogs-tired when she didn’t even dock-dog! Hahaha!

This hotel had a great dog-friendly set of rooms that each had sliding glass doors that led out to a private, enclosed potty area.

We received the best gift ever this past Christmas – the Petcube camera – and used it for the first time here.  We were able to attend the banquet all while keeping and eye on the pups!

Here is a screen shot from  the camera that night:
