Brick House on Main Bed & Breakfast

Brick House on Main is more than just a bed & breakfast. It is an inviting home, and our guests feel welcome from the moment they walk inside.

As we remodeled and decorated our 135-year-old home, we kept guest comfort as our main priority. Our guest rooms with their queen-sized beds are private, quiet retreats from the world. Guests are encouraged to "just relax, make yourself at home, and enjoy the house".

Give us a try. You'll see why our guests look forward to their next stay at Brick House on Main.

Party Punch

I think a great recipe is more than just food. A great recipe brings back good memories of the person who first made it for you. The original version of this recipe was given to me by my friend, Val, about 30 years ago. Every time I make this punch I think of our young children playing together while a group of new mothers grew into a sisterhood that has spanned more than 3 decades.

Holiday hosting has never been easier with this fabulous Cranberry Punch recipe. It's delicious hot or cold, sparkling with ginger ale or champagne. This all-purpose party punch will have your guests begging for the recipe. Believe me, it happens every time I serve it. It's super-simple and is best when you make it a few days in advance. Makes one gallon.

Here's what you need:

  • 64 oz. Cranberry juice cocktail, Cranapple, or cranberry juice*
  • 1 1/2 to 2 cups sugar*
  • 2 cups orange juice
  • 3 T. lemon juice
  • 6" cinnamon stick - do not use ground cinnamon.
  • water
  • Sparkling water, ginger ale, champagne, etc. - if serving cold

*Cranberry juice cocktail and Cranapple are sweetened and need less sugar. Plain cranberry juice is tart and will require more sugar. It's best to start with less sugar, then add more to taste.

Put sugar, cinnamon stick, and 2 cups water in a large pot. Bring to boil and dissolve sugar. Add cranberry juice, orange juice, lemon juice and 4 more cups of water. Simmer for at least 30 minutes. Serve hot in mugs OR chill and mix 50/50 with ginger ale or other sparkling beverage and serve over ice.
