It's a Brand New Year

That's right, with the end of the Winter season and the onset of Spring, a whole new year really begins here at the lodge.  In spring we clean everything, organize everything, and start a new cycle of improvements that will impact just about every aspect of the lodge in one way or another.
We'll be continuing to paint and spruce up all the buildings, we'll be developing new menu ideas, making improvements to the kitchen, dining room, pub, guest lounge and all of the guest rooms again this year.
It's really a lot like our own version of the shows Hotel Impossible and Restaurant Hell in fact.  Except for us, it's on-going.  We're not doing just a quick fix here and there and a new coat of paint on the walls and declaring everything turned around.  (I wish it was that easy though).  I do like watching those shows though if only to identify with what others go through in this business and feel better because we haven't made quite so many mistakes as most of them.

Here are some of the new room pictures we've recently posted on our Website.  We're very proud of how far the rooms have been improved over the last year and a half.  They are now cleaner, neater and better appointed than ever...  and we still have a long list of things we want to do with them.

 This is our cat Sandy sitting on the main Grooming Snowmobile as it awaits a trip to the shop for repairs.

Sandy is very curious and loves to go for rides.  When he rides in the car with me he sits on my lap with his paws on the steering wheel looking out the windshield, so this was right in keeping with him wanting to drive.
