Pool is open!

I truly think this is the earliest guest have gone into the pool and enjoyed themselves.  Yes, them have gone in before but came out with teeth chattering and their skin looking a bit blue.  I don't know what it is like where you live but here in Southern Illinois the weather is just incredible.  I mean close to 90 degrees in mid May.  Now we could really use some rain.  Sorry quest checking in tomorrow, if it happens it won't last long according to the weather man. 
Our local wine trail, Shawnee Hills and Southern Wine Trail have to be doing a booming business from the number of visitors we have had so far this spring.  April was just crazy busy (not complaining) and May so far is great.  Memorial Day weekend is set and people keep calling.  Should be a busy time here in Southern Illinois.  Our professional association of innkeepers PAII is promoting a "Better Way to Stay" while our state Illinois Bed and Breakfast Association promotes all member B&B's as an "Exceptional Way to Stay".  We here at Oakridge Manor Bed and Breakfast just like to promote ourselves as the "Anna and Bob Way to Stay".  So if you have a mind to explore Southern Illinois come see us.  Wine, hiking National and State Parks, the Tunnel Hill Bike Trail, Heron Pond Cypress Swamp or Southern Illinois Miners Baseball and so much more.  For more info on what is around the area go to our Williamson County Tourism Bureau website www.visitsi.com and learn what how we can make Exploration Easy for you.  So until next, Anna
