Mother Nature's Colorfest 9 Nov 2015, 3:20 pm

Back by popular demand, Mother Nature's own Colorfest! In spite of the lack of sunshine the trees here and in the valley are aglow! According to those smarter than me we have about a week before it leaves us (pun intended) for another year! So, put on the rain coat and galoshes and get out and enjoy!

Secret Reflections 9 Nov 2015, 3:14 pm

Secret reflections have given me the opportunity to understand that often times what we see is a reflection of what goes on in our heads. In order to change the current reflection we need only to change our minds. Learning to use the power of positive thinking is the greatest gift the "Secret" has given and continues to give. What does the Secret hold for you? Perhaps you should come on up and find out.

Pumpkin Spice Punch 9 Nov 2015, 3:09 pm

Cool, autumn night. Rain gently hitting the roof. The fire long extinguished outside, but the warmth of new friendships just beginning inside. For those who have never experienced the atmosphere of a bed and breakfast there is no better time than a cold, wet night conversing around the table with strangers who will soon be friends. No great evening meal this Halloween night, but thanks to the internet and Charlie's mixing abilities we had the perfect drink. For those of you who missed out, here it is!! Great for all those apples picked at the various apple festivals. Enjoy!! Where there is wine, there is a way!

A Shining Light 9 Nov 2015, 3:03 pm

In spite of all the wind and rain the last couple of days there are still more leaves on the trees than the ground! And most of them are just turning from green to red to yellow. It's hard to imagine that in just a few short weeks however the trees will be void of leaves and we will be hanging Christmas lights!!! I bet when Mr. Weaver built the lodge he had no idea how it would shine from the bluff at Christmas time! A true beacon in the dark.
Do you have plans for the holidays? The lodge here is beautiful when all decked out for the Christmas! So come on up, get in the spirit and help us celebrate the 50th birthday of the Weaver Mansion!

A Cold Autumn Night 9 Nov 2015, 3:00 pm

A cold, constant, angry wind is whipping in off the bluff. Buckets of cool rain pouring from the sky. Thoughts turn to hot coffee, a warm blanket, and a sunny spot on the couch. While to some the stark, cold of winter is to be dreaded, here it is just another view from the mountain to be cherished. A time to sit quietly and re-charge. To enjoy the clear view over the lake, the warmth of the holidays and an occasional hot chocolate by a blazing fire.
Life is good!

Christmas is Coming! 9 Nov 2015, 2:57 pm

"Christmas is coming the goose is getting fat!!!"
The leaves are turning, the temperature is dropping, and soon our thoughts will turn towards the upcoming holiday season. Sophie can't wait to put on her sweater in preparation for the chilly weather!! For those of you who are planners, which does not include me, we have gift certificates available! There is no better gift than that of rest and relaxation, and we have both here!!
If you are looking to get into the holiday spirit we will be all decked out with numerous trees and thousands of lights!

Autumn Evenings 9 Nov 2015, 2:52 pm

Cool, crisp autumn night by the fire pit visiting with new friends. Followed up by a spectacular sunrise all decked out in the colors of the season. The mountain top set afire with the glow of the early morning sun. Autumn is in the air, life is good.

Spring Flowers, Autumn Leaves 9 Nov 2015, 2:48 pm

Although the warmth of a spring morning brings us flowers, it is the crisp, coolness of an autumn morn that brings us the stars in all their brilliance. Lying in the hammock, wrapped in a warm fleece blanket, I am in awe of how much the valley below seems to reflect the stars above. Soon our thoughts will turn to the holidays with the warmth of Christmas lights glowing in our homes, and yet we miss the light show put on for us each and every night in the sky above. Natures version of Christmas every night!! There is a "Secret" light show waiting off the bluff, come on up, grab a blanket, and enjoy!!
