Jeanne’s Journeys: Frosty Hollow Herb Fair


WP_20180804_13_20_39_ProFrosty Hollow Bed & Breakfast is a beautiful, relaxing, family owned and operated B&B nestled along Route 44 just outside Coudersport. Guests filled the farmhouse, the cottage, and the converted barn. It was already booked when we heard about the Herb Fair, so we were not there for the B&B but rather the Herb Fair.

WP_20180804_08_40_16_ProThe weather held out for us Saturday and the Herb Fair was very well attended. Everyone was so welcoming. We felt like we knew the Ayers family for years, rather than just having met them. The Herb Fest was held literally in the clearing of their gardens. Yes, that was plural. Gardens. The had a section for vegetables, a corn section, and of course an herb garden, as well as flowers.

Vendors were varied. In addition to us, there was maple syrup, jewelry, pottery, herbs, kombucha, essential oils, natural soaps, vegetable and fruits, and more.

And the Gift Shop …

WP_20180804_07_45_25_ProIt was a selection of homemade jams and jellies, near salves and lotions, near pickles and salsa, against a backdrop of antiques, old store items, containers of herbs, sachets, and so much more. There were some seasonal decorative pieces and clothing with the Frosty Hollow logo. I also noticed some products by our own Sue Morris, of Sue’s Salves. And now, the gift shop at Frosty Hollow also sells an incredible magazine about herbs and natural living, and a therapeutic and sustainable way of life. Yes, they now carry Therapeutic Thymes Magazine! Our Summer Issue is on their shelves!

Sunday morning we had breakfast at Fezz’s Diner, as the place we stayed at did not offer breakfast. Good food. Good service. Great location – just off Route 6 on Ice Mine Road. The diner is actually the original 1954 Silk City Diner from Patterson, NJ. Now while that didn’t mean anything to me whatsoever, the hubby – Philly boy that he once was – was in awe and swears he ate at the original one in the 1970s with his Dad. In any case, if you go near Coudersport, stop in at Fezz’s., A word of warning though: they accept cash but not credit cards!

Until next journey …
