Jeff and Laura Goodhart, owners of Goodhart's Inn on Central, are inviting the public to an open house at their bed and breakfast at 49 Central Avenue in Wellsboro.

For the open house, the Goodharts, dressed Victorian style, will welcome guests from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Saturday, Dec. 5 and from 10 a.m. to noon on Sunday, Dec. 6, and during Christmas on Main Street from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. on Friday, Dec. 11; 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 12; and 10 a.m. to noon Sunday, Dec. 13.

"We officially opened the inn on Thursday, Aug. 1, 2019. In September when I returned to work, we had guests on weekends only. We were really busy," said Laura.

"We basically did the same thing this year except we were open all summer. Just like last year, we shut down a couple of weeks ago so we could decorate the inn for Christmas."

During the open house, Christmas music will be playing on a VIctrola and on display will be Shiny Brite ornaments.

Visitors who tour the inn will see how the couple has not only retained the home's original Victorian character but enhanced it with antique furniture and other period d├ęcor that return it to the look of the 1800s, when it was originally built.

The Goodharts have decorated six live evergreen trees ranging from seven to nine feet tall depending on the height of the ceiling in the room where each is located. "Every tree has a specific theme," Laura explained.

"Guests will be treated to our signature hot chocolate and light snacks and receive an engraved ornament, similar in appearance to one of the gas lights that line Wellsboro's boulevards," Laura said. Admission is $5. 

Those who go on the tour are asked to wear masks and social distance.
