Moving Into Autumn

As the cooler days of fall are upon us, we are pleased to tell of all the things that are happening here this season.  We are offering many Fall specials and packages to entice everyone to take time to enjoy this beautiful time of year at Garnet Hill.  Check out the web site at for details.

The movie "Approaching Normal" has begun to move from the editing studio out into the public for the first time.  We held a private preview gathering at the Tannery Pond Community Center in North Creek on Friday, 9/6 which was very well received by the press and more than 100 attendees.  The movie is a touching, charming and at times, quite dramatic tale of a family reunion that takes place at the lodge and the dramatic interactions of the family members as they grapple with each others problems and circumstances but ultimately are brought closer together.  We are awaiting word of it's acceptance into several Independent Film Festivals for later this fall and winter.

A beautiful selection of hors d'oeuvres was served prior to the movie preview.

On Labor Day Weekend we had Frank Hooper and his wife, Janet join us for a special dinner where we got to know him. As the cousin of the original owner of the Hooper Mine, Frank grew up on the Garnet Hill Lodge property and shared many insights and memories with us about how things used to be here.  We are very appreciative of his interest and enthusiasm for the lodge today.

On Wednesday, 9/11, we had a great group of vintage car enthusiasts from the Glens Falls area join us for lunch and they were gracious to park their cars on the lawn for a little photo session afterward.

 Neighbors and friends gathered for a dinner party in honor of Woody and Elise Widlund who have contributed so much to the region with their generosity and hard work and now have moved from their home at Garnet Hill to be closer to their children and grandchildren.

And finally on 9/13 we hosted a Tour Bus Group for lunch and had this opportunity for a group photo on the lawn afterward.
