Morningstar Inn. See more photos below.Location: 72 E. Market St., Bethlehem.

Drive time: A little less than 90 minutes.

Cost: $160-$215 (double occupancy).

The scoop: This five-room B&B in a century-old mansion puts you within easy walking distance of just about all of Bethlehem’s attractions and activities.

Amenities: Aside from the lovely three-course breakfast, Morningstar serves complimentary wine, beer and hors d’oeuvres in the evening, and you’ll find freshly baked cookies all day. In summer, there’s a heated swimming pool and beautiful gardens. Ask for the Victoria Room if you want a whirlpool tub.

Don’t miss: A three-day celebration of Bethlehem’s famous marshmallow confection, the Peeps Fest is held the last weekend in December. Past years have featured ice carving, Olympic-style games, street performers, fireworks and more. And be sure to catch the New Year’s Eve dropping of a 45-pound Peeps chick. It’s held in the late afternoon, so the whole family can attend.
