Time flies when we are having fun! Where did October go? Who knows, but I do know it went very fast and we did have a fun one!! November has arrived and we are now busy preparing for the upcoming winter. The meadow has been mowed in anticipation of a sleek, fast sledding hill and the wood is stacked for the warming fires ahead in the Lodge's magnificent fireplace. Chef Ron is working on new menus for the chilly months. We have enjoyed sampling new soups and desserts he is refining. (Lucky us to be the guinea pigs as thus far they have all been winners!)
The autumn colors are still brillant. The larch trees glowing yellow on the mountains are striking as are the aspens here at the Lodge. The reds of the maples are exceptional along the river and canyons making for beautiful drives these next few weeks. The snow level is dropping on the Cascades with each new rainfall. Temperatures here are still too warm for the white stuff, but that will change by Thanksgiving is my guess.
The winter season at Mountain Home is filling fast. There is still some space in mid-December for a pre holiday visit, but over the holidays there is only a room here and there. January and February are also limited, but do currently have options if you are flexible on room selection. Cabin availability is few and far between, so call us direct if we can assist with sharing the few dates one is still open. The availability calendar on-line is kept current so do check it from time to time if you need a particular weekend in case we do have a cancellation.
Speaking of holidays, don't forget we offer custom gift certificates which make an ideal gift for the special people on your list. We are also happy to ship our freshly baked granola and signature clothing from our gift shop. Just give us a call and you may even leave the holiday wrapping to us if you want - just ask! Ring 800-414-2378 and let Santa's helpers assist you in making this a very special holiday!
Enjoy November and have a warm, delicious and memory filled Thanksgiving! We are so thankful at Mountain Home Lodge for the beautiful life we are blessed with sharing the magic of the mountain with you, our valued guests and friends!
Our warmest wishes,
