Visit the Studebaker National Museum in South Bend, Indiana

February 24th, 2014 by Corey A. Edwards

Studebaker National MuseumStudebaker cars have not been in production since 1966 but their long history and once gleaming reputation lives on at the Studebaker National Museum.

Studebaker began in South Bend in 1852 as a blacksmith shop owned by two brothers: Henry and Clement Studebaker. Once younger brothers Peter, John, and Jacob joined the team, they changed the name to the Studebaker Brothers Manufacturing Company and proceeded to become the world’s largest manufacturer of wagons and buggies.

The very first Studebaker automobile was produced in 1902 – and was electric! It was another two years before the company manufactured their first gasoline model but they continued to make and sell both horse drawn and self-propelled vehicles until 1920.

Notre Dame Graduation Weekend – Guestrooms Still Available

May 4th, 2013 by Scottish B&B

Notre Dame graduation means another school year over and the students are excited to go home and work their summer away. When I worked at Notre Dame for sixteen years, I remember how sad I was to see the students leave. I always got close to several of them, because they worked in the same department as I did.  The atmosphere around campus was different in the summer. I could not wait until they came back in the Fall.  Notre Dame has changed a lot since I worked there, but the spirit of excitement to learn brought an energy that just can’t be defined or replaced. The students kept me young. I will never forget my years working at Notre Dame.

We still have guest rooms available at the Scottish Bed and Breakfast for Notre Dame Graduation weekend May 17 – 18, 2013. We are only 25 minutes from campus and offer a gourmet breakfast each morning, safe parking, king/queen select comfort number beds, private baths, indoor heated pool, garden patio.

WRW_eblast_1_12_13

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!

University of Notre Dame Football, It’s that time of year Again

August 19th, 2011 by Scottish B&B

This coming weekend August 19 and 20, the Notre Dame students will be moving into their dorms for the first time if they are Freshmen or returning if a upper class student.  It is the sign that summer is almost over and the first Notre Dame football game is just around the corner.  Notre Dame’s  first football game  is on Saturday, September 3, (Labor Day weekend) against Southern Florida at 3:30 PM Eastern time in the afternoon.  The Scottish Bed and Breakfast still has some guestrooms available for the Notre Dame football season.  We do not raise our rates for the games, but have a two-night  minimum.  If you are looking for the PERFECT place to stay where you can escape the hub bub of crowded restaurants and long lines before and after the game, the Scottish Bed and Breakfast is the place to stay.  You can come back to the Scottish Bed and Breakfast and just relax by the indoor pool after a long day of walking Notre Dame campus.  One of the things our ND fan enjoys is hearing the band play before the game, a ND tradition.  A hearty homemade breakfast served each morning on game day will give you the energy you will need to walk the campus.  We will share with you the short cut to Notre Dame with no traffic, only 25 minutes south of campus
