Amil’s Inn Visits The Cream Pitcher

February 23rd, 2012 by David Reeck

A cozy, crackling fire awaits you.

This past weekend the Innkeepers from Amil’s Inn Bed and Breakfast-Anita and David Reeck stayed with Diane and Vern Dalberg of the Cream Pitcher Bed and Breakfast for some rest and relaxation.  We soon realized one night was not enough time to enjoy this beautiful Bed and Breakfast.

The Cream Pitcher Bed and Breakfast is situated among the hills of Richland County, this unglaciated area offers awesome beauty as well as outdoor activities in every season.  There are more than 3 miles of hiking trails through the 100 acres of woodland.  One may watch deer, turkeys and other wildlife; see and hear many species of birds and enjoy the creek that flows close by.

 The innkeepers, Diane and Vern have a large collection of pitchers from the 1930′s, 40′s, and 50′s.  The home is embellished with many antiques. The Cream Pitcher was meticulously hand-crafted to ensure the proper blend between modern amenities and old-fashioned quality and comfort.

Guests of The Cream Pitcher experience a retreat in nature. Sports enthusiasts can enjoy hiking, biking, cross country skiing, snowshoeing, fishing, or just relaxing.

We stayed in Jared’s Room which is a spacious room with its own private entrance; a screened porch with hammock chairs, this “northwoods” room has a comfortable queen size bed, a private bath with a large, double shower.  It has a great view of the woods…you can watch wildlife and listen to the birds(in fact Sunday morning we heard a woodpecker outside our window) or step outside and walk the trail into the woods.

There are 3 other beautiful and spacious rooms, all with private baths and more—Kathie’s Room, Andrew’s Room and Tolena’s Room.
