VALENTINE FROM Boonsboro

You'd expect a novelist to name her inn's rooms after famous lovers, wouldn't you. The Marguerite and Percy Room recalls the story of "The Scarlet Pimpernel." The book is among the lovely touches in this room and all of them at the Inn BoonsBoro.

You’d expect a novelist to name her inn’s rooms after famous lovers, wouldn’t you? The Marguerite and Percy Room recalls the story of “The Scarlet Pimpernel.” The book is among the lovely touches in this room. Each room is named for a book at  the Inn BoonsBoro.

Top-selling romance novelist Nora Roberts calls the charming western Maryland town of Boonsboro home — and set her Inn Boonsboro Trilogy here. For Valentine’s Day last year, I braved icy travel to visit the Inn BoonsBoro, Vesta Pizza, Turn the Page Bookstore and all the little shops around the Square. It was worth it for all the views it received in just two days. The column (updated for 2015) is here.

Happy Valentines Day!
