Celebrating International Pineapple Week 2021
Inn at Perry Cabin joined Preferred Hotels and Resorts in celebrating International Pineapple Week from June 20th to June 27th. Independent hotels and resorts worldwide participated in the weeklong celebration of hospitality. Celebrated annually, this year's theme was Acts of Service; recognizing team members and employees for their service and dedication to the industry.
Inn at Perry Cabin highlighted several groups of team members on social media as Hospitable Hearts, our dedicated crew who provide world-class service to all our valued guests. On property, guests enjoyed our signature pineapple dessert and cocktail. The Pineapple Posset featured pineapple variations with cornflower and pineapple mint garnish. The I Prefer Pineapple cocktail was comprised of bourbon, fernet, pineapple shrub, lemon juice, egg white, and bitters. Jan Kirsh Studio also kindly returned her beautiful pineapple sculpture to our Lobby in celebration of Pineapple Week.

The pineapple was first used as the symbol of hospitality over 500 years ago. After exploration at sea, sailors would search for places to rest in port towns. Residents would let sailors know which homes they were welcome to by placing a pineapple at the entrance. Today, the pineapple is still a fitting symbol of hospitality and the industry - you are likely to find a pineapple on your travels, whether a lamp, door knocker, or candleholder.
