Pillow Talk—Friday Pie-Day

in Friday Pie-Day, Travel

Caldwell House Pie on Pillow Service

It’s Friday Pie-Day!  Friday is turning into my favorite day of the week because, well, pie!

Friday Pie-Day!

Today’s pie isn’t actually a pie I have tasted, but it’s on my wish list.  This idea is out of Salisbury Mills, NY from Caldwell House Bed and Breakfast where they have taken the traditional chocolate mint on the pillow with turndown service and turned it on its head.  Yep, they have stepped it up big time with miniature pies placed on pillows as part of the inn’s nightly “Pie on Pillow” turndown service.  Are you swooning yet?

The pies are made by Mrs. Finneran, a culinary artist, using seasonal fruits from nearby farms, making this a farm to pillow experience.

Dena Finneran, who co-owns the bed and breakfast with her husband, John, says “Anyone can do a chocolate mint or a store-bought pie but we wanted to offer something surprising and exclusive to our region during the fall, when pie season is in full swing.”

The inn has put together a two-month “Pie on Pillow” Calendar for September and October 2015, but if you are a guest you can call ahead and request your favorite pie!  Please tell me that one of you is planning a trip to Upstate New York and wants to go and experience this and report back?  I’m about ready to book a trip myself!  All in the name of Pie Tourism.  (It’s a thing, I promise.)  Whether or not you’re able to make it to Upstate New York, I want to hear about your Pie-scapades, so share in the comments!

I expect the “farm to pillow experience” next time I come to visit YOUR house.

LOL, you’ve got it! Do you want to pre-order your flavor, or should I surprise you?

OMG this is such a cool idea. My parents live in upstate New York. Maybe my hubby and I will have to visit, drop the kids off, and go have a little get away, with pie!!
