The deteriorating Aigburth Vale mansion in Towson may be on the verge of regaining its former grandeur, as Baltimore County officials ponder a pair of proposals to restore the historic property.Last week, after months of seeking buyers for the 1868 villa, a county committee narrowed its search to the two possibilities -- one that would turn the house into a country inn; the other for offices after renovation by builders and preservationists.A committee of government representatives and community members will meet Jan. 22 to discuss the finalists' plans.

Thanksgiving in Baltimore falls on a Ravens home game night. So, how will this play out? If the usual hosts of traditional Thanksgiving dinners are off tailgating, will their abandoned guests have to fend for themselves in restaurants? Here's a sampling of area restaurants that plan to offer Thanksgiving dinner. Seats will probably fill quickly, so we suggest reservations. (And to the nice reader who called and asked whether we'd be running a similar list of Christmas openings: Yes.)

The magic of our evening at Antrim 1844 started miles before we arrived at the gracious brick mansion in Taneytown. As we passed farms and meadows on a country road, our moods changed. Stress seemed to slip away. We were on a dining adventure.Dorothy and Richard Mollett have turned the 23-acre former plantation in Carroll County into a country inn with 15 guest rooms and a restaurant serving an elaborate, five-course dinner nightly. There were a few uneven moments during our evening at Antrim, but they did not stand out -- not even at $55 a person.

It didn't take long for Steve Kurzweil and his chef, Bruce Studler, to realize that dishes like duck with glazed cherries and spiced pecans weren't going to fly at their new restaurant in Reisterstown.Last November, a year and a half after they bought the Forest Inn at auction and opened it as Reisters Desire, they changed the name to Reisters Country Inn and changed the menu from New American to casual American. In the process they lowered prices. All of this worked very well with the restaurant's knotty pine and Tiffany lamp interior.

* Item: Country Inn Specialties Cereal* What you get: About 10 half-cup servings* Cost: About $5* Preparation time: Pour and serve* Review: When we have overnight guests, I feel terrible if I'm not home in the morning to cook breakfast. But sometimes that's the way it works out. So I was intrigued by Post's new Country Inn Specialties cereal blends. The blends aren't cheap, but they are a far cry from cornflakes. We tried the Green Gables Inn mix, and I have to confess that it was so good I found myself eating it right out of the bag. The cereal, based on a recipe from the California inn, features dried apples and cranberries, raisins, granola and tiny palmier pastries (like little almond-flavored cookies)

A new eating place has quietly opened in Timonium and - surprise! - unlike most restaurants that have opened in the area recently, it's not part of a chain. Bluestone (11 W. Aylesbury Road) is hard to characterize. Co-owner Dan McCarthy describes the eclectic atmosphere of the 10,000-square-foot restaurant as "spirited," and says the place is named Bluestone because "we liked the sound of it." The food is hard to characterize, too. The dinner menu includes bayou jambalaya, Asian butterfly shrimp, salmon strudel, Tunisian chicken stew and churrasco steak.

More than 50 residents went to a Howard County Board of Appeals hearing last night to voice their opinions on a proposal to turn a historic Savage home into a country inn. At 10 p.m., the board was still hearing the petitioner's testimony -- it had not gotten to the opposition -- and it seemed unlikely the board would vote. The next hearing is scheduled for July 11. Susan Betts, owner of the Joshua Barney House on Savage-Guilford Road, has applied for a special exception to convert the two-story brick home into an inn. The inn would accommodate overnight guests and would be available for gatherings of no more than 50 people.

When most people travel abroad, they fall in love with and buy little mementos to bring home - a sweater, a figurine, an "I fell for Niagara" shot glass. But when a Swiss couple visited friends on the Eastern Shore during a three-week American vacation in the fall of 1993, they fell in love with a house.A big, three-story house listed on the National Register of Historic Places that lay on the empty Mount Vernon road between Princess Anne and the town of Mount Vernon - in other words, a great big renovation project in just about the middle of nowhere.
