Well a positive side to the COVID virus is that we have LOTS of time to get jobs done around the hotel! I always have a “To Do” list, and this year, we may get through everything on my list! A big project was making new drapes for The Red Carpet Room. It has been […]

Bill Zuber is probably most known for his success in baseball and with Zuber’s Restaurant. We are fortunate that people often give us items that are connected to one of these two ‘successes’ in Bill’s life.

Tea and Tales is an event at Zuber’s which evolved from a conversation my daughter and I had several years ago. We have enjoyed taking advantage of every opportunity we have had to “take tea” at a tea house, tea room, or tea event in the area. I took Jaclyn to her first tea at […]

“Zuber’s Homestead Hotel”  Where does that name come from? “Didn’t this used to be a restaurant?” “We used to come here (to eat) on Sundays.” “Why is there a baseball theme in parts of this place?” All of these are questions we hear frequently and are more than happy to answer. This building was built […]

Like it or not, the seasons are changing!  There definitely is a difference in the weather.  We went from hot and humid, to chilly, and this week two very humid days leading up to lower temperatures and rain soon to come.  Is this our “Indian Summer”? In the colonies, fall means Oktoberfest (among other things).  […]
