Take a video tour of Brambleberry:
Chris and Sherry Hardie welcome you to their rural, country home, which was built by Chris’s great grandparents in 1926 and expanded in 2006 to accommodate the B&B and expanded again in 2013 for Brambleberry Winery. Sherry had a successful career as a hairstylist and salon owner for more than 23 years before repetitive stress injuries forced her to retire. That gave her the opportunity to pursue innkeeping, which she had long found intriguing. It has proven to be a good fit with many of her interests, which include entertaining, cooking, gardening and antique hunting. She also enjoys listening to Celtic and classical music and visiting living history museums. Chris is former newspaper editor and publisher who is the executive director of the Black River Area Chamber of Commerce. He still writes a weekly column and enjoys hunting on the family farm. Together they write a weekly wine column featured in two daily newspapers. (For an archive search of some of Chris and Sherry’s wine columns, go to Wine of the week) The couple traveled to England several years ago. The B&B captures their own ideal of a relaxed English country lifestyle.
The Hardies’ lifestyle includes a deep appreciation for the environment. They grow much of their own food in organic gardens and raise much of their own meat. Most of the fruits and vegetables are antique and heirloom varieties. They believe it is of the utmost importance to be good stewards of the earth.
Innkeepers and wine columnists Chris and Sherry Hardie welcome you to their home, which for generations has been a place for family and friends to gather. With that sense of gracious hospitality, we invite our guests to share the warm atmosphere reminiscent of an English country house.
