As I walk over to The Looking Glass Bed and Breakfast on Chestnut Street, I reflect on why we all love to boast about our historic village. Rhinebeck is, indeed, somewhat of a utopia. There are countless reasons why we have become a destination for tourists. There are infinite delights that the guests at The Looking Glass B&B will enjoy this weekend while they are walking through our quaint town – the food, the arts, the culture, the tranquility – it is, indeed, an experience. As I make my way around the corner of Chestnut and Mulberry, and up to the sidewalk in front of The Looking Glass, I am greeted warmly by Cari Meltzer, Innkeeper, as I approach her beautiful Victorian home, where she welcomes people from all over the world, all year long.
M: It is so nice to be sitting on your front porch with you, Cari. Tell me how you first discovered Rhinebeck.
