August 2016 Ladies Lunch – Adams Basin Inn

A wonderful group of ladies get together for lunch at a different location on the second Tuesday of every month and usually like to venture out of town during the good weather months. This month, we had to change the week to be able to go to the Adams Basin Inn in Adams Basin near Spencerport – we went today – the first Tuesday of August. I had never been there before, but several of the ladies said they went some years ago and enjoyed it. Well, today didn’t disappoint! It was just lovely!

Adams Basin Inn is a wonderful B&B right on the canal in a historic building dating back to pre-canal years. In addition to being a B&B, they also cater to special occasions, like weddings and our ladies luncheon. Much of the home is still original or very well restored and has quite a colorful history. We were seated in the dining room after gathering in the parlor. Lunch consisted of chicken salad sandwiches with cranberries and walnuts, potato salad, and a green leafy salad with water or lemonade – very good! After we finished eating lunch, we were treated to a guided tour of the Inn, where we learned all about the history of the Inn and the canal and how it all evolved through the years to the present time. The house is full of wonderful original artifacts and vintage decor — just stunning! After the tour and history lesson, we returned to the dining room for a dessert of pound cake with strawberries and whipped cream…..YUM!!! Dessert was served up with LOTS of wonderful conversation and sharing of stories and memories. What a fabulous day it was!

I wish I hadn’t left my camera in my purse as we toured the Inn, but I did get some lovely shots of the grounds outside as we were leaving. Here are some photos that prove that perfect serenity and absolute peace do exist!

Luckily, Betsy Kennedy got out her phone for a group photo and the owner offered to snap it so she could be in the photo, too!
