LOUDONVILLE -- The Blackfork Marken Inn located at 303 N. Water St. in Loudonville, is kicking off the holiday season with a Christmas Open House on Dec. 7 from 6 to 8 p.m. and Dec. 8 from 4 to 7 p.m.
Organizers encourage the public to come and get in the holiday spirit as those attending can tour the beautiful Victorian home built in 1856 and enjoy refreshments and Christmas music.
The Inn will be decorated in full holiday cheer, so take your time enjoying all the sights the Inn has to offer. Those attending either day can enter a drawing for a one-night stay at the Inn, which is a testament to the architecture and craftsmanship of the 1800s.
The drawing will take place at 6:30 p.m. on Dec. 8, but the winner does not have to be present to win.
As part of the Open House, participants can tour the new Buckeye Room lounge, which is located in the sandstone basement of the three-story home. The Buckeye Room was opened this fall and offers a recreation area with television and pool table for those staying at the Inn.
