We were honored to have State Senator Betty Little as our guest in the afternoon and we had a very nice chat with her
State Senator Betty Little and Mindy sampling the wines of Suhru, based in Eastern Long Island. Each wine maker had a display of the wines they offered during the afternoon
In the afternoon, Dan Berggren serenaded everyone with local folk songs about the Adirondacks.
Meanwhile, other guests enjoyed their wine outside on the lawn on a warm summer afternoon.
In the evening everyone had a wonderful dinner tasting the wines of 5 different New York wine makers paired with the most delicious entree courses from Chef Heidi Plumley. A great time was had by all.
The week before Mindy and I had the pleasure of accompanying one of our long time and frequent guests on a quest to explore the caves at Chimney mountain in nearby Indian Lake. It was quite and experience to slide between some very large rocks to enter a massive cave complex that descends deep in to the mountain.
The hike begins at this beautiful bucolic farm at the base of the mountain.

The cave entrance is a very slim crawl space between the giant rocks.

The truth is stranger than fiction moment when we came across a room key to one of our guest rooms sitting by itself on this large boulder deep within the cave.
