We have four bookings in June and two in July. We have a youth group coming with 275 youth and 25 adults. We are putting the boys out in the meadow in tents with portapotties and the girls inside. That will be interesting.
Have had two phone calls within the last 2 days wanting to book a family reunion in Jul of next year. Since my son has developed a web site for me, neat things are happening. We also will book just one couple and put them in "The Cottage." This place is so amazing.
I am so excited to have Leigh and her ladies coming next week. There are 14 coming this time. I charge $40 a night plus tax with a 2 night minimum. They do their own cooking and have a wonderful kitchen in which to cook. They quilt in the 1800 foot ballroom and eat in Sunset house. They are all great cooks and always invite Mike and I to eat with them. Unfortunately, I usually put on a couple of pounds while they are here. They are so cute when they first arrive. They are like little children coming home for a fun vacation. But then when they have to leave, just the opposite is true. They really love their time here.
Last week we had an incredible group of teens stay at our happy Hideaway Valley Lodge. They were there for a Youth Retreat they call Youth Conference. They played walleyball in the racquetball court, pool, ping-pong, held indoor scooter races and in general - had a blast. They also cooked a dutch oven dinner in our oversized fire pit. We had about 40 youth who also volunteered to do some service work for an older couple who live nearby in Hideaway Valley. They took a huge trailer load of firewood, which the Lodge donated, over to this wonderful couple's home and stacked it all neatly for them as well as performed some yard work and clean up for them as well. The couple was sincerely appreciative and the kids had such great attitudes. It was a pleasure to host thier event and we hope they return next year. Keep us in mind for church retreats, Youth Conference and Youth Retreats we love having them here!
The Hideaway Valley Lodge recently had the privilage to host Leigh's Knitting Retreat. We had a great group of women knitters who love to sit, visit, eat and knit. This group has enjoyed it so much they come back four times a year! "We just don't want to leave," is what we love to hear from our beloved knitters. We're so glad to get to know them. They also spoil us since each night they fix amazing gourmet meals in one of our kitchens and they're so good to invite us to join them. I gain 3 or 4 pounds everytime they come! When snow blankets the ground outside, the women are snuggled in the warm comfort of the wood burning stoves. Thanks again for coming Leigh, we love you all!
