We were looking for something different to do for our anniversary and friends told us of the fun they had a few weeks earlier. So we decided to try it for ourselves. We arrived early on a very cold (16*) snowy Sunday to be greeted by a friendly receptionist who wished us a happy anniversary and proceeded to let us know the details of our weekend. We booked a suite which was very large, warm and cozy. We warmed up in front of the fireplace in our sitting room before we headed over to the clubhouse for the carriage ride. It was an awesome experience to see the elk up close and to have Jack tell us about the story of how they came to raise them & the care it takes. The ride ended at their lovely cabin in the woods. We got to warm up before the beautiful fireplace & have our picture taken. The dinner Jan prepared was wonderful & she put effort into making sure everyone at our table enjoyed it in spite of allergies. The wine was very good & the decor like a western movie. Jan told us about their family & the cabin, making it an interesting & personal touch. We returned to our suite for a very comfortable night's sleep. The following morning, we had a nice breakfast in the clubhouse. We would like to thank Jack & Jan & their friendly, courteous staff for a unique anniversary experience.
