Starting at $159, the Groundhog Day Special includes:
• Lodging for two for one night in a cozy inn guestroom or cottage, Feb. 1 (the night before Groundhog Day)
• Dinner for two prepared by the Inn's renowned chef, Anthony Schulz
• A special showing in the inn's Gathering Place of the quirky comedy “Groundhog Day," starring Bill Murray and Andie MacDowell
• Popcorn with the movie showing
• A full country breakfast for two
After a good night’s rest, guests can wake up for the official Feb. 2 Groundhog Day celebration, when everyone will discover if Punxsutawney Phil sees his shadow, signifying six more weeks of winter. After breakfast, guests can search for a groundhog on their own, while hiking through the hundreds of acres of state parks and state and national forests that surround the inn.
Groundhog Day is celebrated every year on Feb. 2. According to folklore, if weather is cloudy when the groundhog emerges from its burrow, he'll leave the burrow and winter weather will soon end. However, if it's a sunny day and the groundhog sees his shadow, he'll retreat back into his burrow and winter weather will continue for six more weeks.
