Winter has arrived! It's been snowing here since Friday and that has all added up to well over a foot of the fresh white stuff. Time to get out the snowshoes, skis and snowmobiles. Rooms available for the upcoming weekend at the B&B and the Stillwater Shop will be open with 24/7 non-ethanol gas available. Marian's restaurant will be open all week for lunch and dinner. We are closed Christmas Eve and Christmas Day and then will be back in business! Have a blessed holiday with your family and a healthy, happy and prosperous New Year! We look forward to seeing you soon!  Look for us on Facebook this week!  We'll be having "snow" much fun!  Not sure who's more excited this year - Frank or the kids!  Having the inside track with Santa has given me lots of details about Christmas morning........more to come.......

Snow globe day

There is always the first day of every winter that makes me think we are living in a snow globe - well today was it.  It snows all day yet there's hardly any more at the end than at the beginning.  When the kids were little I rarely got out in it - now I can't wait to be outside -at  night feeding the horses with the outside lights cast from the barns - watching the sun glisten in the am as if our property is encased in diamonds....chickens perch in the door of their coop unsure if they should brave it outside...cats fluffed up with winter coats...looking at all the little footprints in the snow and wondering who visited last night......  We love winter! 

I'm always reminded of the Emily Dickinson line
There are winter mornings when the cold without only adds to the warm within, and the more it snows and the harder it blows, brighter the fires blaze.Emily Dickinson

What I've come to learn however is that you don't have to be inside to enjoy the warmth that a great winter day can give.

New look on website!

Hi All - We're very excited about the launch of our much improved website!  Please be sure to visit frequently! You can also follow the link there for our new Facebook page - yes I know - we're a little behind with the technology thing but finally agree we need to be on Facebook!  We invite you to share on our Facebook page as well as comment on our blogs - we will maintain this blog as well as have a shorter blog link on the new website for quick news.  We're waiting for winter to arrive here in the Adirondacks - should be here soon.  Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow!  In the meantime come up and enjoy a relaxing weekend get-a-way - catch a movie at the Strand Theatre in Old Forge - take a hike on one of the many great trails in the area - still a great place to visit even when there's no snow - Joe and Marian at the Stillwater Restaurant are open on the weekends and would love to see you as well!
Thank you to all our customers for visiting us in the past year and we wish you all a happy and healthy holiday season and new year!
