Attention Small Town Travel Enthusiasts!

There is no better time to explore our quaint little town of Mitchell! We have an amazing few days coming up between July 29 - August 4, 2024. A Homecoming Celebration like never before, with an exhilarating lineup of events, promising  joyous reunions and unforgettable memories for all!

There will be so much to see and do right in our own town, try the street food available throughout and mingle with the local folk. Already a vibrant atmosphere is being created and decorations going up in red, white and blue as part of the Homecoming decorating contest. Starlings & Roses B&B is, of course, participating! Lo and behold our Homecoming display "Walk with the Herons", we had so much fun setting up. We hope that it is not only visually pleasing and fun, but also very practical for our guests - it has directional signs to the local venues where most of the events will be taking place, which all are within a short walking distance from us.

On July the 31st we are inviting everyone to come in for a complimentary hot or cold drink to go and a garden tour exiting through our back gate to continue walking to the Nature Trail & Lions Park or Downtown where so many interesting events are taking place. (Perhaps, you will get to see our visiting blue heron and get the authentic "walk with the heron" experience? Anything is possible ;) We have placed the full event schedule next to our "Adventure Awaits" brochure stand and it is available to take along as a trifold with a map of the town. We feel so blessed to be in the middle of all these happenings!
