Restaurant Week in Downtown South Bend

January 25th, 2013 by Scottish B&B

If you’ve been waiting for a reason to get out of the house and go somewhere, here it is. It’s Restaurant Week in South Bend, IN! The downtown area of South Bend is packed with great places to eat, drink, and see the finest in entertainment.

Restaurant Week starts on January 21, 2013, and runs through February 3, 2013. (Yes, that’s more than a week, but we just can’t pack everything into a mere 7 days.) With eleven restaurants and clubs to choose from, you’ll want to come back more than once to enjoy everything there is to see, drink, and taste.

And if you need a place to stay while you are in town, the Scottish Bed and Breakfast is only minutes away from all the action, in a peaceful rural setting. When you need to relax and recover from the excitement (so you can do it again tomorrow), there’s no better place than Scottish B&B. Warm, comfortable rooms with Sleep number beds, a relaxing atmosphere, and a hot, homecooked breakfast help you to get ready for more action.

Give us a call at 574-220-6672 or visit our website at scottishbb.com for information and reservations. Ask about our specials, too. We’d love to see you!

Date Set For Amish Garden Walk – June 16, 2012

March 20th, 2012 by Scottish B&B

Since today is the first day of spring, what better way to celebrate the changing of the seasons than marking our calendars for one of the highlights of the year – the Amish Garden Walk right here in Bremen, Indiana!

Amish Flower Garden

Amish Flower Garden

Every year the Amish community in Bremen, Indiana holds a “Garden Walk” with several Amish families participating. The annual Amish Garden Walk in the Rentown area is Saturday, June 16, 2012 from 9 a.m. – 3 p.m. They ask for a donation ($7.00) which helps the local Amish school. There are always new discoveries to be made among the neat rows of vegetables and bright flowers. (And no weeds!)

The Amish Garden Walk starts at the Amish School house with a sweet snack and beverage for everyone to enjoy. They also sell fresh baked goods, with proceeds benefiting the Amish community. As we walk to the different Amish gardens, the Amish grocery store gives out “FREE” homemade ice cream. It’s a great way to spend a day, and we’re helping the children in the Amish community learn by donating to their school! Don’t forget to bring your camera!
