If you love trains like I do, you might want to include a visit to the Strasburg Train Museum. Strasburg is a delightful 45 minute drive from Hamanassett. For our guests who come for the cooking school which includes Sunday and Monday nights in your rate, we offer a special rate of only $150.00 per night for each additional night you stay until Friday. For more information on the Strasburg Museum and railroad (where you can actually take a trip on a train) click here. Longwood Gardens, only 15 minutes from Hamanassett Bed and Breakfast is also having their Orchid Extravaganza during this time so there are lots of reasons to extend your stay, beyond the great rate.
