Gilmore Girls fans, have you heard the good news?! Rejoice, Sookie St. James is back! As you may know, Netflix is preparing a revival with four episodes in the works directed by the show’s original creator, Amy Sherman-Palladino. Most of the cast will be returning to Stars Hollow and as of this Friday (after some scheduling conflicts), Melissa McCarthy is officially a part of the team! Truth be told, I could never imagine the show without bubbly, funny, dream bestie Sookie.
Now, on that note, what kind of a Gilmore Girls fan(atic) would I be without marking the moment ? I never quite got over the sets of Dragonfly Inn, decorated in sync with the girls’ colorful personalities so I thought I’d take you all on a set tour!
Welcome to the Dragonfly Inn! This charming Connecticut inn is gonna steal your heart for sure. Upon your arrival, you’re greeted by a cheerful exterior with a most inviting porch and lots of flowers, and you know you’ve come to the right place! 🙂
From the main entrance, the reception area is to your left, can’t miss it. Here Lorelai will check you in and tell you all about the many if somewhat quirky Stars Hollow attractions. You’ll want to have coffee at Luke’s and spend time in Mrs. Lee’s antique shop. Or check out one of Ms. Patty’s dance classes.
After a long day spent exploring around town, you could relax in the living room with a hot cup of coffee and a slice of Sookie’s heavenly cakes. They are famous, you know.
Or maybe you’re in the mood for some tunes. No problem, there’s a jukebox right behind you!
But if food is what you’re all about, Sookie will be more than happy to whip up a delicious dinner just for you. Right here in this cozy dining room.
A beautiful fireplace and lots of colorful details will add charm to your dining experience .
Later, if you’re feeling smart you should check out the inn’s stylish library. It is chock full of great reads, classics and the occasional self-help. All Rory-approved.
And then there’s the kitchen, of course. Although guests don’t usually go in there, you’ll be happy to know it’s always packed with Sookie’s latest creations, carefully selected fresh fruit and veggies. And lots and lots of COFFEE!!
The worst part of your stay will be leaving this happy place. You don’t want to and why should you? Everything about this town makes you smile and you’re thinking ¨One day I’ll move to Connecticut and open up my own inn, just like this one!¨ 🙂
