Mission Inn Makeover
Just in time for the holidays, we've given our sunny solarium a makeover. We replaced all of the furniture, added some beautiful new rugs, and rearranged a few items to give this space a warm, fresh, new look. We can't wait for you to see it in person! It's the perfect combination of modern elegance and beachy comfort - ideal for reconnecting, reading a book, doing a puzzle, or enjoying a glass of wine!
Music at The Mission
Our house concert featuring musician Karl Werne was a hit last weekend. Karl shared stories and songs from his long career as a singer-songwriter. He also serenaded our guests at the breakfast table on Sunday morning - a first at The Mission Inn! To listen to one of his powerful originals titled "Five More Minutes", click here .

Next up is the Porter & Sayles holiday show on Sunday, December 9 at 5 pm. Singer/songwriters Christian Porter and Regina Sayles bring their powerful vocals back to The Mission Inn for what promises to be an early Christmas present for everyone who gets to see them up close and personal in this intimate setting. We will also be collecting toys for a local charity at this concert so please bring any unwrapped children's gift to donate.

This show is already sold out! If you'd like to be added to the wait list, please email us at info@missioninn.net . Or check out our full schedule to RSVP for our Jan, Feb, March, or April shows.
Karl Werne and friends serenaded our guests at breakfast last Sunday morning. What a way to start the day!
Porter & Sayles return on Sunday, December 9 at 5 pm to perform their holiday show.
Out and About in Cape May
We recently took advantage of a rare day off combined with some beautiful fall weather to get outside and ride our bikes along the Cold Spring Bike Trail. We pedaled all the way to the Cape May Zoo - that's a 32 mile round-trip ride! With 65 degree temperatures and some fall foliage along the trail, it was a wonderful way to spend the day. Whether you're up for a long ride on the trail or just a short ride around town, the fall is a great time to hop on a bike. Feel free to bring your own bike or use one of our complimentary beach cruisers. Either way, enjoy the ride!
Winner! Winner!
Thanks to everyone who voted for our "Bird Brain" in the scarecrow contest at the Emlen Physick Estate. We just found out that we won first place in the business category! While Halloween is officially over, we are not done with our birding tribute plans this year. Look for information about our Christmas theme in the December newsletter. Or visit the inn next month to see our holiday plans take flight!
