A HUGE thank you to Lodema Jenkins who came to Sharon Springs from Florida to help with the opening of Miss Lodema’s Tea Room. We could not have done it without her!!! Also, a special thank you to Lodema’s friend, Carol Larter, who volunteered to help out in the kitchen and lend a hand. The two made an awesome team! We received great feedback from those who attended the Sharon Springs Garden Party tea room Grand Opening.

Miss Lodema’s Tea Room has been in the planning stages for almost a year. Although the concept was clear, the name was not. We wanted a Victorian name to reflect that era in the 1800’s when the Roseboro Hotel’s private orchestra played while the guests took their afternoon tea or danced at a tea dance. The tea room would have a distinctly European Victorian atmosphere, so we sought a name with an English connection. It needed the name to be unique. It should also connect to Schoharie County and its surroundings. As you can imagine, there were lots of rejects. However, in 1873 there was a baby girl born just over the Schoharie County line in Delaware County to an English family that came from Sussex in the early 1700’s. Although not named specifically for her, the name seems just right. Enjoy your visit.”
