Valentines Day in the spacious 2 bedroom cabin with a fireplace blazing. It just doesn't get much better than that. The lodge is so very helpful, from check-in to all the way through the weekend. Having failed to get my merit badge from the Boy Scouts for fire building, the maintenance department even dropped off fire starters for me to use. So many events offered, even in the middle of winter with snow on the ground. We attended a poetry writing seminar, went on a winery tour, just enjoyed driving around the grounds. On Saturday night, there was a dinner with white tablecloths and placement cards. These guys really did a great job with the dinner. Cabin rates vary depending on the season. Ours was secluded, up near the top of the hill and was priced at $200 per night. Considering meals are included and if you wanted to, there is 2 bedrooms, with additional bunk beds (yippee!) and roll-a-way beds for a total of 10 sleeping places. Bring friends and family and the cost is even less. We plan to return in the summer for more events. Oh, nearly forgot. The winery has a program called 'Grape Friends' where you can come to the vineyards and help them harvest their grapes. They feed you and they get their grapes picked. Kinda like a Tom Sawyer deal, but sounds like so much fun. That's definitely on our to-do list for this fall. Go to EDG-CLIF web site to find out about this event.
