When Pigs Fly…at The Inn at Leola Village

I can’t think of a better way to spend a mid-fall weekend than with a country getaway, and I was lucky enough to escape this past weekend for a quick trip to the Inn at Leola Village. This charming inn took home top prize for Best Inn at our Best of PA Readers Choice event this year, and I decided it was time to see it for myself. Anyone who knows me knows I am a pig fan through and through. Come inside my house, and there are pigs everywhere—on top of my refrigerator, on my walls, and I even have one in my windowsill.
