Ode to Blennerhassett – Poem by Cindy Worley

Cindy Worley, a long-time dear guest and friend of The Blennerhassett, felt inspired upon her last stay and crafted a lovely poem, titled Ode to Blennerhassett. We are grateful to Cindy for her creative expression.

We suggest reading the following aloud to appreciate the rhythm of the poem.

Without further adieu,

Cindy Worley and Husband

Ode to Blennerhassett

by Cindy Worley, 2023

Oh, Beautiful Blennerhassett, how do I love thee?

Let me count the ways!

I love your rooms, your beds, and the views,

They get better in each of my stays!

Your staff—how friendly, how gracious and kind

They always ask of my news.

They care about me and my family.

They know how to help you unwind!

There’s Robin & David to get you checked in,

Mike can take your luggage upstairs, if you need it

The lobby is bursting with beautiful flowers

And lively décor to match each season.

I can’t wait to get to the lounge for my Blenny Margarita.

Aromas from the restaurant tempt your hungry taste buds

And the lounge bar has spirits that are always pleasin’.

Scott will serve you the tastiest meal

And Kyle offers up the finest craft suds.

If you have doggies, don’t worry one bit

They are always as welcome as they can be.

They even find treats and bowls in the rooms

For canines, this hotel is surely a hit!

My favorite spot is the library downstairs,

Take a drink, sink into the couch, relax with a book.

I have just left my troubles far behind.

As I sit and I sip in this cozy warm nook

So, Beautiful Blennerhassett, how I do love thee?

Don’t ever change, you’re perfect in every way.

I can’t wait to come back

For another lovely stay.
